The Collaborative Research Center 1502 (SFB 1502) on Regional Climate
Change: Disentangling the Role of Land Use and Water Management (DETECT
https: // www. lf.uni-bonn.de/en/research/crc-detect ) has recently been awarded
funding by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and is looking to
recruit several Postdoctoral Scientists starting as soon as possible. All
positions are fixed-term, initially until December 31st, 2025, with the
possibility of an extension.
DETECT is a research network of hydrologists, meteorologists, land-use
modellers, geodesists, data assimilation and remote sensing specialists, data
scientists, agricultural economists, and social scientists from the Faculties
of Agriculture and Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the Rheinische
Friedrich Wilhelms University Bonn, the Universities of Cologne and Göttingen,
the Forschungszentrum Jülich and the Deutscher Wetterdienst.
We are looking to recruit a
Postdoc - developing the CRC's HPC-related data portal in the DETECT
central project Z03 with a background in data and Earth system sciences
Projects within DETECT will investigate how land-use and water management lead
to persistent modifications in the coupled water and energy cycles of land and
atmosphere (‘drying' and ‘wetting'); and thus disentangle the role of these
drivers of regional climate change from radiative forcing. They will develop
evidence-based sustainability criteria for climate-smart land and water use.
The SFB 1502 is well embedded in the excellent research infrastructure of the
participating institutions and offers access to state-of-the-art technologies
and a vibrant scientific community.
Your tasks in detail:
Conducting and further developing an independent research project
Acquisition and application of scientific methods
