Sporadic and massive eruptions of very high-energy matter and radiation from the Sun can have a pronounced impact for example on the aeronautical ability to aviate, navigate and communicate.
The department for Space Weather Impact develops and investigates methods to measure, evaluate and predict physical as well as technical quantities, which describe the effects of space weather on technical systems. Results help to improve our understanding of space weather effects on (humans and) technical systems and to contribute to potential countermeasures in cooperation with scientific, industrial or governmental partners.
Your mission is application oriented research to improve the knowledge about space weather interactions with human technological infrastructure on ground and in space to support operators of critical infrastructure and services in the domain of navigation, communication, aviation, space exploration and electric power grid.
You will bring in your excellent skills into an international successful and highly motivated research team with long scientific expertise in ionosphere and space weather research. Here, you will experience a very good working atmosphere in a well-equipped and modern research site situated in a beautiful and livable region of Germany.
