The International Centre for Global Earth Models (ICGEM) was established in 2004 as a service of the International Association of Geodesy (IAG). Since then, the ICGEM Service has been hosted at the GFZ - Potsdam. The service collects all ever published Global Gravity Field Models (GGMs), which are directly linked to mass distribution and mass transport in system Earth. ICGEM makes the models available to the public in a standardised, self-explanatory format and supports the community under the umbrella of IAG´s International Gravity Field Service. There is a need for scientific and technical expansion, and upgrade of the existing database. This position offered is part of a DFG project “Service and Archive for Mass Distribution And mass Transport data (SAMDAT)”. The overall objective of the SAMDAT is to respond to the growing need and demand for improved and quality assured, well documented GGMs and related products with additional types of datasets and data representations that are enriched with metadata and provided in a sustainable infrastructure on interoperable platforms.
GFZ is looking for a Scientist (f_m_x) to be involved in the SAMDAT project.
