· Evaluation of remote sensing data to identify and map landslides (e.g. time series) (step 1)
· Performing a landslide susceptibility assessment based on existing statistical models (step 2)
· Combining the modelling results (step 2) with a remote sensing based change detection approach (i.e. land cover changes) to detect/map new landslide events (work step 3)
· Support of project related administrative tasks, communication of the results in oral and written form
· Participation in project relevant meetings (also outside Europe)

· Cooperation project requirement: The young scientist must be a European resident and studying in the European area (incl. holding a European passport/identify card)
