POSTDOC POSITION ON HYDROLOGY-VEGETATION-SOCIETY COUPLING


The new Emmy Noether group on Hydrology-Climate-Biosphere Interactions 
at the Department of Biogeochemical Integration is searching for
a highly motivated PostDoc.

We seek a motivated PostDoc to analyze hydrological impacts 
on vegetation and society to derive guidance to agricultural and 
water resources management. 
Specifically, the research goals comprise (1) to test how hydrological forecasts can improve 
irrigation management, (2) to analyze hydrological long-term trends in past and present 
time periods to guide long-term adaptation measures, and (3) to investigate magnitude-frequency 
patterns of extreme events such as droughts and floods and to relate them to actual observed 
(monetary) damages. Further, the significance of climate and societal changes for these topics 
will be analyzed. While the PostDoc should contribute to the project there is some flexibility in 
terms of topics and approaches; he/she is expected to contribute own ideas.


The position is offered for an initial period of 2 years starting from spring 2018:
