The Helmholtz Centre Potsdam - GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences is the national research centre for Earth sciences in Germany. With approx. 1260 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.
Within the framework of the Helmholtz Young Investigators Group "SAIDAN: Seismic and Aseismic Deformation in the brittle crust: Implications for Anthropogenic and Natural Hazard" (www.saidan.org) hosted by Section 4.2 "Geomechanics and Rheology" we invite applications for a
The SAIDAN Young Investigators Group aims at: (1) generating a quantitative understanding on deformation processes extending from fully seismic to completely aseismic movements in the brittle Earth's crust, and (2) characterizing precursory processes preceding the occurrence of large earthquakes in relation to both plate-bounding transform faults and reservoir engineering activities.
The members of SAIDAN (P.I. Dr. Patricia Martinez-Garzon) will benefit from scientific interaction with the main collaboration partners (University of Southern California, Geoazur Laboratory of Nice, Caltech, Ruhr-University of Bochum).
In addition, the GFZ is a partner with Geo.X (www.geo-x.net), and as such it is well connected with other geoscience institutions in Potsdam und Berlin. Geo.X forms the largest regional cluster of geoscientific expertise in Europe and offers excellent opportunities for cooperation and development.
