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)
