Several Postdoctoral Positions within DETECT

21.01.2022 - Rheinische Friedrich Wilhelms University Bonn and Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany

The Collaborative Research Center 1502 (SFB 1502) on Regional Climate Change: Disentangling the Role of Land Use and Water Management (DETECT) has recently been awarded funding by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and is looking to recruit several Postdoctoral Scientists starting as soon as possible. All positions are fixed-term, initially until December 31st, 2025, with the possibility of an extension.

DETECT is a research network of hydrologists, meteorologists, land-use modellers, geodesists, data assimilation and remote sensing specialists, data scientists, agricultural economists, and social scientists from the Faculties of Agriculture and Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the Rheinische Friedrich Wilhelms University Bonn, the Universities of Cologne and Göttingen, the Forschungszentrum Jülich and the Deutscher Wetterdienst.
Projects within DETECT will investigate how land-use and water management lead to persistent modifications in the coupled water and energy cycles of land and atmosphere (‘drying’ and ‘wetting’); and thus disentangle the role of these drivers of regional climate change from radiative forcing. They will develop evidence-based sustainability criteria for climate-smart land and water use. The SFB 1502 is well embedded in the excellent research infrastructure of the participating institutions and offers access to state-of-the-art technologies and a vibrant scientific community.


We are looking to recruit the following Postdoctoral Scientists

  • at University of Bonn in the field of meteorology for project A04, with a background in precipitation, specifically polarimetric radar measurements
  • at the Institute of Bio- and Geosciences - Agrosphere (IBG-3) of Forschungszentrum Jülich in the field of plant modelling for project C02, with a background in plant physiology and drought stress
  • at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) of Forschungszentrum Jülich developing the CRC’s HPC-related data portal in the central project Z03 with a background in data and Earth system sciences
  • at University of Bonn in the field of geoinformation in project Z03 with a background in geographic information science, geodesy, computer science or a related discipline
  • at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) of Forschungszentrum Jülich enabling the CRC through a variety of HPC-related tasks in the central project Z04 with experience in Earth system modelling
  • at University of Bonn enabling the CRC through a variety of HPC-related tasks in the central project Z04 with experience in Earth system modelling
