PhD position (f/m/d) in the field of Complex System Science
Potsdam-Institut für Klimafolgenforschung e.V. (PIK)
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 Joint German-Russian Project “Nonlinear Empirical Mode Analysis of Complex Systems: Development of General Approach and Applications in
Climate”, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), PIK is offering a
PhD position (m/f/d) in the field of Complex System Science, starting on 01.04.2019.
(Position number: PhD position-09-2019
The position is funded for 3 years. Remuneration is in accordance with the German public tariff scheme (TV-L Brandenburg), salary group E 13. This is a part-time position with a weekly working time of 30 hours per week (75% position). Appointment is conditional on approval by the funding agency.
The project will be conducted as a joint project of scientific groups from Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) headed by Dr. N. Marwan and from the Institute of Applied Physics (IAP) of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Nizhny Novgorod headed by Dr. D. Mukhin. The combination of the advanced studies from dynamical systems theory and statistical mechanics require a joint effort of experienced research groups, bridging the gap and cross-fertilizing concepts between physics and geosciences.
