The Institute of coastal research at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht invites applications for a three-year PhD position in the field of climate change detection and attribution within the Coordination of Storm Themes in collaboration with the University of Reading, United Kingdom.

The overall project goal is to assess the impact of known anthropogenic changes in the climate system’s thermodynamic state. The place of employment is Geesthacht. more
