PhD fellow in geochemistry and geobiology
The Geobiology and Minerals Section and Dahl Lab are offering a PhD position in geochemistry an geobiology. The aim of the PhD will be to evaluate the global oxygenation state of the oceans during critical time periods in the early history of land plants.
The PhD is part of the Dahl research group whose overarching goal is to understand the co-evolution of life and the global environment through geological history. The purpose of the project is to evaluate the global oxygenation state of the oceans during critical time periods in the early history of land plants (480-300 million years ago).
The research will be mainly experimental working on stable isotope fractionation of uranium in sedimentary rocks, sample collection and sample preparation, but may also include numerical geochemical modelling.
We are looking for a self-driven student with a background in experimental geochemistry (or equivalent) and a strong motivation to conduct research in Earth history.
Assistant Professor Tais W. Dahl will supervise the project.
Application deadline is April 20th 2017.
The start date is September 1st 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.
