The GFZ Potsdam is offering a PhD position in glacial modeling as a part of the second phase of the DFG-funded priority program 2017 “Mountain Building Processes in Four Dimensions (4D-MB)”, where the isostatic response of the European Alps to Quaternary glaciations is investigated. The research focus is on numerical modeling of the Alpine ice cover and the lithospheric deformation. The position starts between January and March 2021 and is limited to three years.
The tasks are to develop a workflow that links ice models (e.g., PISM, iSOSIA) and lithospheric models, the compilation of data for model forcing and evaluation and to conduct extensive numerical experiments. You will work in a team with other PhD students, postdocs, and stafftogether and present the results at international conferences and in scientific publications. The requirements are a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in Geosciences, Physics, Mathematics or other related sciences, proven experience in glaciology and/or geodynamics, and numerical modeling and very good programming skills.
Application Deadline: 30.11.2020
