Dear colleagues,

below you can find information on 10 PhD positions to be filled in 
October 2018, focusing on very different fields of geosciences, all 
under the umbrella of the graduate school "StRATEGy" coordinated by the 
University of Potsdam.
We would be happy if you could forward this to potential candidates. 
Many thanks!

Kind regards,

Since October 2015, the DFG International Research Training Group 
“Surface processes, Tectonics and Georecources in the Andean Foreland 
Basin of Argentina” (StRATEGy) is established at the University of 
Potsdam and runs in cooperation with the GFZ German Research Centre for 
Geoscience and our Argentinian partner universities in Buenos Aires, 
Salta, Jujuy, and Tucumán.

“StRATEGy” aims to conduct an interdisciplinary study of the 
source-to-sink system of the Argentinian Andes. Our study addresses the 
complex relationships between tectonics, climate, erosion, sediment 
deposition, and the environmental conditions prone to the generation, 
migration, and accumulation of hydrocarbon resources and metallogenesis. 
The foreland and the transition to the Andean orogen interior is 
characterized by ongoing, yet highly diachronous and spatially disparate 
tectonism, in addition to pronounced contrasts in relief, rainfall, and 
erosion. These characteristics make this region an outstanding natural 
laboratory to study surface processes and their tectonic and climatic 
forcing factors that impact sediment production and mass-transfer on 
multiple spatiotemporal scales.

The position is for 30 hours of work per week (75 %). The salary is 
determined by the collective bargaining agreement for public employees 
in Germany (TV-L 13 Ost). This is a temporary position limited to a term 
of 3 years in accordance with Section 2 Para 1 of the Academic 
Fixed-Term Contract Law (WissZeitVG).

Handicapped applicants will be given preference in case of equal 
suitability. The “StRATEGy” consortium strives to increase the 
proportion of women in research and specifically encourages females to 
apply for this position.

Applications should include the following components: CV, letter of 
motivation, research interests (specific interests and research plan for 
PhD project), a record of academic degrees, including a transcript of 
records and two letters of recommendation. Because the members of the 
PhD program will spend 6 months at our partnering universities in 
Argentina, Spanish language skills are advantageous.

Applications should be sent in a single PDF file to Dr. Henry Wichura 
(*wichura at geo.uni-potsdam.de* <mailto:wichura at geo.uni-potsdam.de>). *The 
deadline is July 31, 2018*.
