The Collaborative Research Centre CRC 1464 "TerraQ - relativistic and quantum-based geodesy", funded by the German Research Foundation is characterised by its unique interdisciplinarity of quantum physics and geodesy. TerraQ aims to advance quantum-based measurement concepts for monitoring mass changes from space and on ground, combined with the corresponding data analysis and modelling, in order to provide sophisticated tools that significantly enhance our knowledge on the involved change processes in the system Earth. The position is part of the TerraQ subproject C05 "Modelling of Mass Variations Down to Small Scales by Quantum Sensor Fusion" which is a collaboration activity of GFZ Potsdam, Leibniz University Hannover and HafenCity University Hamburg. The position will contribute with terrestrial gravimetry and hydrological monitoring and modelling to a combination approach of satellite gravimetry, terrestrial gravimetry and GNSS loading observations that ultimately aims at developing models of regional time-variable gravity and total water storage variations.
