In October 2015, the DFG Research Training Group “Natural Hazards and Risks in a Changing World” (NatRiskChange) will be established at the University of Potsdam and will be run in cooperation with the Freie Universität of Berlin, the German Research Centre for Geosciences GFZ and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). NatRiskChange aims to develop methods that improve hazard and risk analyses and quantifications based on the transient, non-stationary nature of hazards and risks in response to changing natural and anthropogenically altered components of the earth system. Key scientific aims are the development, testing and pilot application of studies on the identification, quantification and prediction of transient natural hazards and associated risks. Earthquakes, floods, and mass movements are of major research interest. Together with its partners, the University of Potsdam jointly offers the following positions in the DFG-Research Training Group “Natural Hazards and Risks in a Changing World” (NatRiskChange): 12 Academic Staff Members (12 PhD-positions, 0.75 part-time at the salary grade E 13 TV-L) and 1 Academic Staff Members (PostDoc-position, full-time at the salary grade E 13 TV-L) Applicants are asked to refer to one of the following topics: * 155-I1/2015: Natural hazards in a changing climate – What causes the variability? (Supervisors: Dr. Henning Rust, Prof. Dr. Uwe Ulbrich, FU Berlin) * 155-I2/2015: Study of transient periods in natural and in induced seismicity (Supervisors: Dr. Sebastian Hainzl, GFZ Potsdam; Prof. Dr. Matthias Holschneider, PD Dr. Gert Zöller, University of Potsdam) * 155-I3/2015: Towards non-ergodic, time dependent, ground-motion models (Supervisors: Prof. Dr. Fabrice Cotton, GFZ Potsdam; Prof. Dr. Frank Scherbaum, University of Potsdam) * 155-I4/2015: Changing Risk from Glacial Lake Outburst Floods (Supervisors: Prof. Dr. Ariane Walz, Prof. Dr. Oliver Korup, University of Potsdam; Dr. Sigrid Rössner, GFZ Potsdam) * 155-Q1/2015: Regional flood hazard changes from a space-time recurrence perspective (Supervisors: Prof. Dr. Bruno Merz, GFZ Potsdam; Dr. Norbert Marwan, PIK Potsdam) * 155-Q2/2015: Complex network analysis based on event synchronization of natural hazards (Supervisors: Prof. Dr. Jürgen Kurths, PIK Potsdam; Prof. Dr. Bruno Merz, GFZ Potsdam) * 155-Q3/2015: Understanding drivers of changing susceptibility of flood-prone residents (Supervisors: Prof. Dr. Annegret Thieken, PD Dr. Gert Zöller, University of Potsdam) * 155-Q4/2015: Analyzing changes in micro-scale flood related vulnerability of companies (Supervisors: Dr. Heidi Kreibich, GFZ Potsdam; Prof. Dr. Frank Scherbaum, University of Potsdam) * 155-P1/2015: Landslide Prediction under Changing Boundary Conditions (Supervisors: Prof. Dr. Oliver Korup, University of Potsdam; Prof. Dr. Jürgen Kurths, PIK Potsdam) * 155-P2/2015: Transient merging of two Rhine flow regimes from climate change (Supervisors: Dr. Gerd Bürger, Prof. Dr. Axel Bronstert, University of Potsdam) * 155-P3/2015: Spatio-temporal response of extreme precipitation to climate change and decadal climate variability (Supervisors: Prof. Dr. Matthias Holschneider, University of Potsdam; Dr. Henning Rust, Prof. Dr. Uwe Ulbrich, FU Berlin) * 155-P4/2015: Assessment of early-warning signals and tipping points of sudden ecosystem shifts causing rapid land degradation in drylands (Supervisors: Dr. Eva Müller, Prof. Dr. Axel Bronstert, University of Potsdam; Dr. Saskia Förster, GFZ Potsdam) * 155-PDA/2015: Stationarity versus non-stationarity and the effect on respective probabilities (PostDoc-Position at University of Potsdam, Institute of Earth and Environmental Sciences; Prof. Dr. Axel Bronstert) Responsibilities and requirements depend on the PhD-project and are outlined on the website www.natriskchange.de. The PhD-posts are part-time (75%), fixed-term employment contracts for 3 years. The Post-Doc-position is a full-time fixed-term employment contract for 3 years. Contracts are time-limited according to the Academic Fixed-Term Contract Law (WissZeitVG). The salary scale is TV-L E13. Employment in all positions shall begin at 1st October 2015. Handicapped applicants will be given preference in case of equal suitability. The NatRiskChange consortium strives to increase the proportion of women in research and specifically encourages females to apply for these positions. Applications should include the following components: CV, letter of motivation, research interests (specific interests and research plan for PhD-project), a record of studies, master and bachelor certificates (for 155-PDA/2015 doctoral and master certificates respectively) including a transcript of records, two letters of recommendation as well as an English language certificate. Applications can be sent in pdf-format (no larger than 10 MB) by e-mail to Dr. Theresia Petrow (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 29th June 2015.
