Chair of Mathematical and Physical Geodesy

We contribute to the advancement of science and the formation of experts in the field of space geodesy and navigation. We are convinced of the high societal relevance of space geodesy and positioning to monitor, precisely quantify and reliably predict changes in our environment and in the ever-changing Earth’s system. We are pursuing our goals by integrating excellent research, innovative technical developments, profound education and international collaborations.

Open Ph.D. Position

We are looking for a Ph.D. candidate for the "Co-location of space geodetic techniques". See here for more details.


Two major challenges in Earth monitoring today are the fast response to catastrophic events (e.g., earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides) and the reliable detection of very small long-term trends (e.g., sea level change, plate tectonics). Read more
