The climate needs bright minds. The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) addresses crucial scientific questions in the fields of global change, climate impacts and sustainable development. It is one of the world's leading research institutions in its field and offers natural and social scientists from around the world an inspiring environment for excellent interdisciplinary research.
Within the Horizon2020 Framework Programme, the Potsdam-Institute for Climate Impact Research and its Working Group ‘Ecosystems in Transition’ is offering a
The position is planned to start 01.10.2021 and is funded for 3 years, remuneration is in accordance with the German public tariff scheme (TV-L Brandenburg), salary group E13. The position is full-time with a weekly working time of 40 hours per week. The position can be filled on a part-time basis.
The H2020 Project FirEUrisk investigates changes of fire regimes within Europe under future climate- and land-use change. Wildfire threats are increasing and getting more extreme across Europe and worldwide. The project work will assess adaptation strategies designed to be implemented in an integrated European fire management program. These tasks require improvement of established fire- and vegetation models by building hybrid models based on machine-learning techniques using Remote Sensing Data extensively. This will happen in close collaboration with the Institute of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing of the TU in Dresden and the Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Center in Frankfurt/Main.
PIK seeks to increase the share of women in scientific positions and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply. In cases of equal qualification and within the given legal scope, women will be given preference. Applications by persons with a migration background are expressly encouraged. Applications of disabled persons with equal qualifications will be regarded favourably. PIK also encourages applications by parents returning from parental leave.
