For the second time, GFZ offers two PostDoc positions that aim at adding to the future direction of GFZ’s research.

The new positions are funded by the GFZ Discovery Fund (former Topic Innovation Fund TIF) and will support two fellowships per call, starting once a year. The fellowships will run for a maximum duration of three years. Successful candidates are expected to perform innovative projects and to identify future fields of research within the GFZ research units. The research topic can be freely chosen but must be assigned to one of the GFZ’s research units of the fourth funding period of the program-oriented funding of the Helmholtz Association POF IV, have an interdisciplinary approach, and be realized in close cooperation with at least two GFZ sections. The positions are expected to improve cooperation between the single research units.

Deadline for the 2019 call is 15 April 2019, the positions are planned to be filled as of October 2019. Applications may be submitted by GFZ staff as well as external interested persons that finished their PhD within the past six years. (ak)
