Deutsches GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam, Germany
The Helmholtz Center Potsdam - GFZ German Research Center for Geosciences is the national center for research into the geosphere. With around 1,500 employees, we develop a sound understanding of systems and processes of the solid Earth as well as strategies and options for action to counter global change, understand natural hazards and sustainably secure energy and raw material requirements. For section 2.7 "Space Physics and Space Weather" we are looking for a: PhD candidate (f_m_x) - Machine Learning for space weather applications in ionosphere and magnetosphere Reference Number 9255 Our section is working on understanding the dynamical evolution of the hazardous space radiation environment and developing tools for specification and prediction of the adverse effects of the space environment utilizing machine learning, as well as physics-based models, and data assimilation. Our research will help safely design and operate satellites and maintain...
