The newly founded group ‘Computational Geoscience’ at the Geoscience Centre at University of Göttingen invites applications for the following positions:
Postdoc Position for Data-intensive Methods for the Geosciences
You received your PhD on a geoscientific topic with a strong methodology focus or in a data science / computational topic of relevance to the geoscience. You would like to continue on a research-oriented and independent track, facing the constantly growing challenges of data-intensive geoscientific research, while developing methods to integrate, analyse, interpret or visualize large, heterogeneous geo-data. You are willing to participate in future open-source and open-data projects of the group. You enjoy working with students and would like to contribute to basic and advanced teaching, specifically data science classes. You are a team player and have a cooperative, responsible and committed working style.

PhD Position in Optimal Data Acquisition for Mass Flows
You have completed your studies in a computational geoscience, applied mathematics, simulation science (or a related subject) and have a keen interest in research on natural hazards and climate change impact. You would like to combine a research focus in computational method development with occasional lab and field experience. Initial expertise in the development of simulation models for transport processes / shallow flow / mass movements or alternatively in optimal experimental design are desirable but not a must. You are willing to participate in future open source and open data projects of the group. You are a team player and have a cooperative, responsible and committed working style.
