Post Doctoral Researcher In Clumped Isotopes

at University of Melbourne

About the role

This position is formed in association with palaeoclimate researchers in the Schools of Earth Sciences and Geography at the University of Melbourne. You will work closely with Professor Woodhead in the School of Earth Sciences and A/Prof Russell Drysdale in the School of Geography and are expected to lead a vigorous research program developing optimal methods for palaeotemperature analysis of speleothems. The principal focus will be further development and application of the clumped-isotope technique; the group also plans to develop and apply the fluid-inclusion stable isotope technique. These methodologies will be applied to the reconstruction of Neogene palaeoclimates from various sites around Australia and the world

About you

  • A PhD (or near completion of) in Earth Sciences or Geography
  • Demonstrated experience in carbonate palaeotemperature analysis using the clumped isotope technique. Ideally, this would include experience working with speleothems or exposure to a laboratory setting that is or has been involved in clumped isotope measurements on speleothems
  • A demonstrated aptitude for independent and group research with an excellent record of research productivity and publication in international scientific journals, commensurate with experience and opportunities
