Digital Earth Bridging Postdocs

One very important strategic tool in Digital Earth is to ensure a flexible and targeted support of emerging scientific questions by using the expertises from different Helmholtz Centres. In order to do so six Bridging Postdocs, who applied with their own scientific project, have been selected. These researchers are hosted at one Earth and Environment Research centre of the Helmholtz Association, and do cooperate with at least one other Helmholtz Centre.

The Digital Earth Bridging Postdocs are:

Dr. Sibylle Hassler hosted at KIT, Karlsruhe with "Bridging the scales of evapotranspiration (BRIDGET)" - co-host UFZ, Leipzig ►starting date July 1st 2019

Dr. Dadiyorto Wendi hosted at  GFZ, Potsdam with "Project Summary: Enhancing Flood Data Workflows through a Coupled Model Chain" - co-host UFZ, Leipzig ►starting date July 1st 2019

Lennart Marien hosted at GERICS, HZG, Hamburg with "Machine Learning methods for assessing causal links in heterogenous data: applied to Climate Change and Health" -  co-host HMGU, München
