Jobs and PhDs


Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig Postdoctoral Scientist (m/f)
The Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research GmbH - UFZ Leipzig, Department of Isotope Biogeochemistry led by PD Dr. Hans Richnow, invites applications for a scientist position (m/f) within the DFG-funded priority program (PP) “Rhizosphere Spatiotemporal Organization – a key to Rhizosphere functions”.
Closing date for applications:  • Location: Magdeburg Researcher (m/f) in Lake & Reservoir Modelling
The Department of Lake Research is offering a research position in lake modelling to be filled at the nearest possible date. The main focus of this position is on model-based analyses of ecosystem dynamics, aquatic biogeochemistry and water quality.
Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig Postdoc (m/f) in the field of Smart Monitoring
Following a multi-disciplinary and earth compartment-connecting approach, the research project Digital Earth integrates and harvests the competences of all eight Helmholtz Centres in the research field Earth and Environment. Through a data science approach, which, in addition to the development of SMART monitoring designs, drives the establishment of a data exploration framework, we seek a data-driven gain in knowledge for a holistic view of the Earth system. Redundancies in the development of methods, services and workflows shall be avoided and know-how widely distributed and sustained. Natural scientists 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. Together they are looking for solutions, in particular with regard to the processing of fast-growing, multi-parameter data sets through the use of existing data science methods, the adaptation of new algorithms and the development of digital workflows. More information about Digital Earth can be found at https://digitalearth.geomar.de/.
Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig Senior Scientist (m/f): Synthesis position
The research unit ‚Chemicals in the Environment‘ is offering a synthesis position at the nearest possible date.
Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig Postdoc (m/f)
Within the interdisciplinary Helmholtz project “Reduced Complexity Models – explore advanced data science techniques to create models of reduced complexity“ several Helmholtz centers aim at addressing and developing the following three components simultaneously and in a unified manner: uncertainty quantification, development of fast surrogate models and the identification of key parameters and dependencies.
The UFZ is therefore seeking for a Postdoc (m/f) for the subject: Development of aggregated ecological models with reduced complexity.
As many ecological models are quite complex, the working objective of the position advertised here is to develop approaches to aggregate or simplify dynamic ecological models (e.g. vegetation models).

We are looking for a motivated student interested to work on a topic combining water treatment, electrolysis and catalysis.
Closing date for applications:  • Location: Halle Master thesis (m/f)
A reliable assessment of the flooding hazard of river basins is crucial for many
disciplines ranging from water resources management to urban planning and
the insurance industry. However, the stochastic character of streamflows
makes this a difficult task, particularly when long series of observed discharge
data are not available. New methods promise to increase the reliability of the
estimates of flood magnitude and frequency, especially in conditions of data
scarcity, by exploiting a new conceptualization of hydrological processes.
This thesis work aims at identifying key climatic and landscape controls
on flooding potential of river basins, in order to develop a tool to assess
if available data series are long enough to provide reliable estimates of the
underlying hazard.
