The Helmholtz Centre Potsdam - GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences is the national centre for geosphere research. As a member of the Helmholtz Association
we are part of the largest German scientific organization. With around 1,300
employees we develop a sound understanding of the systems and processes of the solid Earth as well as strategies and options for action to face global change and its regional impacts, to understand natural hazards and reduce associated risks, and to assess the influence of humans on the Earth's system.
As a partner in Geo.X
, the GFZ has access to an excellent network of other geoscience institutions in Potsdam and Berlin. This largest regional concentration of geoscientific competence in Europe offers first-class cooperation and development opportunities.
For section 4.6 "Geomorphology" (department 4 "Geosystems"), we are looking for 1 or 2:

A team of multiple post-doctoral researchers, PhD students, and Masters students will pursue these questions in three selected field areas: the Central Andes of Argentina, the Patagonian Andes of Chile and Argentina, and the Kyrgyz Tien Shan.
