GFZ Discovery Fellows 2022

Helmholtz Centre Potsdam GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences

Potsdam, Germany 🇩🇪

For the fourth time, GFZ will offer PostDoc positions for young scientists that aim at adding to the current and future direction of GFZ’s research. The positions are promoted by the “GFZ Discovery Fund” and will support up to two fellows for a duration of three years. The GFZ would like to fill – at least – one of these two positions with a female scientist.

Successful candidates are expected to define innovative scientific projects and to identify future fields of research within the GFZ research sections. The research topic can be freely chosen, but must be assigned to at least one of the GFZ’s Topics of the Helmholtz Association PoF IV period, have an interdisciplinary approach, and be realized in close cooperation with at least two GFZ sections.

Therefore, the research theme has to integrate several GFZ’s sections and open up interdisciplinary fields, which also allows the candidate to sharpen her/his innovative research profile.

Deadline for the new call is Friday, May 6th, 2022.

Applications that are not complete by the time of the deadline will not be considered!

Short listed candidates will be invited to present their projects on June 22nd, 2022.

The planned starting date for the projects is October 1st, 2022.
