At TU Dres­den, Faculty of Envi­ron­men­tal Sci­en­ces, Depart­ment of Geo­sci­en­ces, the Chair of Geo­in­for­ma­tics offers a pro­ject posi­tion wit­hin the Pro­jekt „NFDI4Earth – Natio­nale Rese­arch Data Infra­st­ruc­ture for Earth Sys­tem Sci­en­ces“ star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble and limi­ted until Sep­tem­ber 30, 2026. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by § 2 (2) Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - WissZeitVG).

The DFG-fun­ded pro­ject NFDI4Earth is part of the Ger­man Natio­nal Rese­arch Data Infra­st­ruc­ture (NFDI) and deals with the digi­tal needs wit­hin Earth Sys­tem Sci­en­ces. It pro­vi­des rese­ar­chers with FAIR, cohe­rent and open access to all rele­vant data as well as inno­va­tive methods for rese­arch data manage­ment and col­la­bo­ra­tive data ana­ly­sis. The pro­ject con­sor­tium is coor­di­na­ted by the TU Dres­den and com­pri­ses 58 part­ners from well-known natio­nal insti­tu­ti­ons in Earth Sys­tem Sci­en­ces. The adver­ti­sed posi­tion belongs to the NFDI4Earth coor­di­na­tion office at the Chair of Geo­in­for­ma­tics with strong links to the TU Dres­den Cen­ter for Infor­ma­tion Ser­vices and High-Per­for­mance Com­pu­ting (ZIH) and the Sup­port Cen­ter Rese­arch Data at TU Dres­den.
