Dr. Jörg Rinklebe is a Professor for Soil- and Groundwater-Management at the University of Wuppertal, Germany.

Main research

His main research is on wetland soils, sediments, waters, plants, and their pollutions (trace elements and nutrients) and linked biogeochemical issues with a special focus on redox chemistry. He also has a certain expertise in remediation of soils and soil microbiology.

International Co-operation

Professor Rinklebe is internationally recognized particularly for his research in the areas of biogeochemistry of trace elements in wetland soils. He published plenty of scientific papers in international and national journals as well as numerous book chapters. He is serving as an Associate Editor for the international journal Environmental Pollution and a member of serval editorial boards such as Geoderma, Water, Air, & Soil Pollution, Ecotoxicology, Archive of Agronomy and Soil Science. Also, he is guest editor for Journal of Environmental Management, Applied Geochemistry, and Environmental Geochemistry and Health, and reviewer for many international journals. He has organized several special symposia at various international conferences such as “Biogeochemistry of Trace Elements” (10th, 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th ICOBTE) and “International Conference on Heavy Metals in the Environment” (15th, 16th, 17th and 18th ICHMET). He was an invited speaker (plenary and keynote) at many international conferences.


From 1997 to 2006 Dr. Rinklebe has worked as a scientist, research associate and project leader at the Department of Soil Sciences at the UFZ Centre for Environmental Research Leipzig-Halle, Germany. Dr. Rinklebe has studied one year Ecology at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, U.K. (1992-1993). He has studied Agriculture, specialized in Soil Science and Plant Nutrition, at the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg, Germany, and received his Ph.D. in Soil Science at the same university.
