The Helmholtz Centre Potsdam – GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences is the national research centre for Earth sciences in Germany.
With approx. 1280 employees, the GFZ is conducting interdisciplinary research on the "System Earth" and the influence of humans on the
planet. As a member of the Helmholtz Association, it is part of Germany’s largest science organization.
Subject to the final approval of the BMWi funded ERA-ACT project "Pre-ACT – Pressure control and conformance management for safe
and efficient CO2 storage - Accelerating CCS Technologies", Section 6.3 "Geological Storage" in Department 6

You can expect a very diverse and challenging job in an international work environment that is characterized by exciting research projects.
The compatibility of work and family life is of particular concern to the GFZ. Therefore, it offers the opportunity for flexible working time
and workplaces. Moreover, there is a kindergarten located on the research campus.
The GFZ is a partner with Geo.X (www.geo-x.net), and as such it is well connected with
other geoscience institutions in Potsdam and Berlin. Geo.X forms the largest regional cluster of geoscientific expertise in Europe and
offers excellent opportunities for
cooperation and development.
