This PhD is part of a major project recently funded by the National Research Agency (ANR). The ANR project is called MYGALE and aims at understanding the influence of hydrothermal alteration on volcano stability. The candidate will quantify alteration in-situ in the experimental device and post-mortem by 3D characterization using an X-ray microtomograph (porosity-permeability). The alteration products will be characterized using electron microprobe and/or X-ray diffraction.

Skills in volcanology and pressure-temperature experimentation will be assets for obtaining the PhD grant.

Application closing date: 23rd May 2022.

The University of Cologne is one of the largest and most research-intensive universities in Germany, offering a wide range of subjects. With its six faculties and its interfaculty centres, it offers a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines and internationally outstanding profile areas, supported by the administration with its services.

The task of our research group is to assess the vulnerability of selected case study regions regarding floods and droughts. The scope of the positions will be on numerical modeling of hydrological processes particularly with regards to Position a): mesoscale modeling of floods and droughts in selected European watersheds using the SWAT model Position b) small scale modeling of flash floods in urban areas due to extreme precipitation.

Please apply before 12th June 2022. Find full information here.

The Climate Service Center Germany (GERICS), a scientific organizational entity of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon, invites applications for a PhD candidate, starting August 1st, 2022, in the research project „Co-designed pathways towards sustainable water futures“ as part of a newly established Helmholtz Young Investigator group (HYIG). The position is limited to 3 years and is intended to complete with a PhD.

Tasks include e.g.:

  • Investigate uncertainties and sensitivities in global and regional climate models ensembles and their simulation of blue and green water resources concerning scenario choice, land use, and atmospheric CO2 concentration.
  • Analyse and handle the full range of available climate model data under different scenarios and experiments (e.g., CMIP6, EURO-CORDEX).

Please apply befor 6th June 2022.

The Climate Service Center Germany (GERICS), a scientific organizational entity of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon, invites applications for a Postdoc, starting August 1st, 2022, in the research project „Co-designed pathways towards sustainable water futures“ as part of a newly established Helmholtz Young Investigator group (HYIG). The position is limited to 4 years.

The successful candidate will be part of an HYIG in collaboration with the University of Potsdam. The new group aims to better understand and simulate interactions between human water use and regional climates.

Tasks include e.g.:

  • Evaluate the performance of the enhanced modelling system against results obtained from previous (offline) hydrological impact simulations and against observational/reanalysis data. Identify potential sources of uncertainty and adapt the system accordingly.
  • Analyse sensitivities and uncertainties due to different input and forcing data sets.

Application closes on 6th June 2022.
