The Helmholtz Centre Potsdam - GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences is the national research centre for Earth sciences in Germany. With approximately 1.280 employees (including visiting scientists), 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 Section 2.6 "Seismic Hazard and Dynamic Risk" / Department 2 "Geophysics" we invite applications for a
The amount of seismic data recorded in buildings is exploding. We are seeking a talented and motivated scientist (m/f/x) to work with our engineering seismology team for combining engineering technologies and seismic data, develop innovative building seismic monitoring methods, investigate the seismic response and the behaviour with respect to large earthquakes and different structural states, and to monitor and predict in real-time possible damages of instrumented buildings due to earthquakes. The specific topics will be dependent on the skills of the successful candidate. Skills related to seismic hazard/engineering applications and a sound knowledge of scientific (e.g. machine learning) programming is welcome. A participation in field experiments is also encouraged.
