The University of Cologne is one of the largest and most research-intensive universities in Germany, offering a wide range of subjects. With its six faculties and its interfaculty centres, it offers a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines and internationally outstanding profile areas, supported by the administration with its services.
We offer a position for obtaining a PhD degree in the atmospheric sciences as integral part of the collaborative research center “Earth - Evolution at the dry limit” (https://sfb1211.uni-koeln.de/), funded by the German Science Foundation. Now in its second phase, CRC 1211 wants to deepen our understanding of the mutual evolutionary relationships between Earth surface processes and biota in (hyper-)arid desert systems, where both are severely limited by water availability. The successful candidate will be a member of the CRC’s Integrated Research Training Group, which aims at educating a generation of truly interdisciplinary doctoral candidates in the fields of Earth and Life Sciences, a combination of growing importance in the course of ongoing and accelerated global change. The here advertised position addresses the climate-model diversity in the Atacama Desert on geological time scales and the implication for aeolian transport, supervised by the project leader Prof. Stephanie Fiedler.

The position is available from 1 January 2021 (75% / 29,87 hours per week). It is limited for three years. If the applicant meets the relevant wage requirements and personal qualifications, the salary is based on remuneration group 13 TV-L of the pay scale for the German public sector.
