Funded by the Graduate School Scholarship Programme (GSSP) of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the NatRiskChange Research Training Group now offers a full DAAD PhD scholarship at the Institute of Earth and Environmental Sciences of University of Potsdam, Germany for a period of three years (or up to four years for candidates from developing or emerging countries). The related PhD project is entitled “Investigating debris-flow susceptibility in Southern Germany using near-surface geophysical tools”. Further subject-specific information can be obtained from Prof. Jens Tronicke (email@example.com) or from Prof. Oliver Korup (firstname.lastname@example.org
The scholarship includes
The selected candidate will be fully integrated in the activities and the teaching curriculum of the NatRiskChange Research Training Group, and enjoy the vibrant international research environment in the Institute of Earth and Environmental Science at the University of Potsdam. The schedule and length of the language course will be determined after consultation with the selected candidates.
The candidates are required to have
Handicapped applicants will be given preference in case of equal suitability. The NatRiskChange consortium strives to increase the proportion of women in research and specifically encourages females to apply for these positions. Applications should include the following components: a detailed CV, a letter of motivation, a brief research concept (ca. 2 pages) for the PhD project (focussing on a plan on how to quantify the susceptibility to debris flows in small catchments with near-surface geophysics and geomorphology), a record of studies, master and bachelor certificates including a transcript of records, an English synopsis of the Master thesis, a list of publications, oral and/or poster presentations at conferences, and two letters of recommendation. The files should be sent, by e-mail, in one single PDF document (< 10 MB) to Dr. Theresia Petrow (email@example.com) by December 1st, 2017.
Based on the applications, the University of Potsdam will, in a first stage, nominate two to four candidates. These candidates will be required to submit a full application to the DAAD which will then, in a second stage, be evaluated by DAAD. Candidates will be informed in detail about the second stage in case they are nominated after the first stage. The actual scholarship and the related PhD study are envisaged to start in April 2018.
