The Helmholtz Centre Potsdam - GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences is the national centre for geosphere research. As a member of the Helmholtz Association we are part of the largest German scientific organization. With around 1,300 employees (including our guests) we develop a sound understanding of the systems and processes of the solid Earth as well as strategies and options for action to face global change and its regional impacts, to understand natural hazards and reduce associated risks, and to assess the influence of humans on the Earth's system.
As a partner in Geo.X, the GFZ has access to an excellent network of other geoscience institutions in Potsdam and Berlin. This largest regional concentration of geoscientific competence in Europe offers first-class cooperation and development opportunities.
For section 4.5 "Basin Modelling" (department 4 "Geosystems"), we are looking for a:
Project "Deformation mechanisms along the Main Marmara Fault DeMMaF"
We are seeking a postdoctoral research scientist to work in the frame of the project "Deformation mechanisms along the Main Marmara Fault DeMMaF" funded in the DFG Priority Programme of the International Continental Drilling Program SPP 1006. The main objective is to assess how the rheological configuration of the lithosphere in concert with fluid dynamics control the present-day deformation and stress field along the North Anatolian Transform Fault in the Marmara region (NW Turkey) in order to improve the seismic hazard assessment for the mega city of Istanbul.
