Institute Institute of Coastal Research
Location Geesthacht

The advancement of Earth system understanding critically depends on the better integration of data and knowledge from different Earth science disciplines. In the Helmholtz Association project Digital Earth, natural and data scientists work closely together to gain new insights from the ever-growing amount and variety of research data using novel concepts and methods. They are looking for solutions, in particular with regard to the processing of fast-growing, multi-parameter data through employing existing Data Science methods, adapting new algorithms and developing digital workflows tailored to specific scientific needs. Digital Earth integrates the competences of all eight Helmholtz Centers in the research field Earth and Environment. more

PhD Position (m/f) for Matter Transport and Ecosystem Dynamics at the Department of System Analysis and Modelling
code no. 2018/KS 5
The place of employment is Geesthacht, Germany.

The Institute of coastal research at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht hosts a number of highly motivated and experienced researchers in the broad field of coastal research. Our research focus lies on numerical modelling of coastal processes with specific expertise in modelling of atmospheric and marine biogeochemistry and interactions between different environmental compartments on regional and coastal scales. At Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht we develop numerical models with the aim to determine the past and current state of the environment and to identify the major drivers for future changes in the system.
The working group for Matter Transport and Ecosystem Dynamics at the Department of System Analysis and Modelling invites applications for a PhD position (m/f). Changes in marine ecosystem occur on different time scales. Besides relatively abrupt changes in the ecosystem on yearly time scales, observations and models also indicate decadal to centennial variations. Long-term reconstructions of the regional climate now allows for associated long-term model simulations of the marine environment and ecosystem. The proposed position will thus focus on the reconstruction of the North Sea and Baltic Sea environment and ecosystem on time scales larger of 150 yrs and longer with the fully coupled ecosystem model ECOSMO E2E. The aim of the study is to identify the role of long-term climate variations for changes in the ecosystem and to evaluate the underlying processes and their variability. The position is limited to 36 months. more
