1) Postdoc position in igneous petrology/geochemistry – GEOMAR, Kiel (Germany)
The research unit “Magmatic and Hydrothermal Systems” at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research Kiel (Germany) is offering a position as Post-doctoral Researcher starting on August 1th, 2018. The working group Petrology-Geochemistry investigates submarine volcanism by means of bathymetry, geochronology, and major and trace element and radiogenic isotope geochemistry. In the project SHATSKY EVOLUTION, the Shatsky Rise (northeast Pacific) will be surveyed (mapped) and volcanic features sampled during upcoming R/V Sonne expedition SO265 (Aug. 27 to Oct. 11, 2018). The main objectives of the project are characterization and dating of the volcanism that led to the formation of this vast oceanic plateau.
The main responsibilities of the postdoctoral scientists include (besides active participation in expedition SO265) contributions to the extensive analytical program, data evaluation and interpretation, and publication of peer-reviewed articles. Expected is the willingness to present scientific results at (international) conferences, to collaborate in preparing reports and to write (peer-reviewed) publications in English language. The project will be carried out in cooperation with international partners.
The position is available for a funding period of 26 months. The salary depends on qualification and could be up to the class E13 TVöD-Bund of the German pay scale for public employees. This is a full-time position and cannot be split. GEOMAR seeks to increase the proportion of female scientists and explicitly encourages qualified female academics to apply.
GEOMAR is an equal opportunity employer and encourages scientists with disabilities to apply. Qualified disabled applicants will receive preference in the application process.
Applications including a CV (with publication list) and contact details of 2 referees should be sent as single pdf file to the following address via Email by February 28, 2018 using the subject line “SO265” to: email@example.com
As soon as the selection procedure has finished, all application papers will be destroyed according to data protection regulation.
