The Helmholtz Centre Potsdam - GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences is the national research centre for Earth sciences in Germany. With approx. 1280 employees, the GFZ is conducting interdisciplinary research on the "System Earth" and the influence of humans on the planet. As a member of the Helmholtz Association, it is part of Germany's largest science organization.
For research group "Magnetotellurics" lead by PD Dr. Ute Weckmann within Section 2.7 "Near-surface Geophysics" we invite applications for a/n
The project "Site characterization of the PIER-ICDP drill holes by imaging the subsurface electrical conductivity structure: local and regional structure beneath Mýtina and Neualbenreuth Maar (ConeEM)" is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) within the Special Priority Programme ICDP (International Continental Scientific Drilling Program). The main objective of the project is to investigate a possible relation between geodynamic processes with fluids and pre-existing fault zones at depth based on measurements of magnetotelluric (MT) data in the vicinity of planned drill locations in the Eger Rift (PIER-ICDP).
