Two 2-year Post-Doctoral Research Posts in Sea-Level Research
Roland Gehrels and Antony Long are seeking to appoint two post-doctoral research staff to work on a NERC funded project "North Atlantic Sea-Level Variability in the Last Half-Millennium". The project aims to apply state-of-the-art palaeoenvironmental techniques to reconstruct sea-level variability from sediments that will be collected from six coastal marshes around the North Atlantic Ocean (Connecticut, Maine, Nova Scotia, southern England, northern Germany and western Iceland). The work will involve close collaboration with colleagues at the Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory (for modelling thermal expansion), the NERC Radiocarbon Laboratory, the Hadley Centre (MetOffice) as well as with Professor Glenn Milne (University of Ottawa) and Dr Maarten Blaauw (Queen's University, Belfast).
We are looking to appoint one staff member with expertise in foraminiferal analyses (Plymouth, Gehrels) and a second with expertise in diatoms (Long, Durham).
These are both fixed term appointments for two years and will commence on 24 August 2009.
Interviews will be held during the week beginning Monday 25 May 2009.
For an informal discussion, please contact Professor Roland Gehrels (roland.gehrels at plymouth.ac.uk<mailto:roland.gehrels at plymouth.ac.uk>) or Professor Antony Long (A.J.Long at Durham.ac.uk<mailto:A.J.Long at Durham.ac.uk>) although applications must be made via the on-line University application procedure by following the links below. If you are interested in applying for both posts, please make separate applications to each institution.
Please note the closing dates for applications.
