can you post the following onto the aqua-listserver for me.
It as gone out on the geomoprh list , the radiocarbon list and also will appear for the month of April in EOS.
I have sent it to the paleo-climate list 2 weeks ago but it has yet to be distributed on it. do you know if this list is still operating.
Post-doctoral Research Fellowship in
Palaeo-climate archive studies with cosmogenic and stable isotopes
Institute for Environmental Research
Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO)
2-year term (extendible to 3-years):
Salary range: A$66,451 (plus superannuation)
A post-doctoral position is available for an experienced and energetic experimental scientist to conduct independent and team-based research in the application of isotopic and cosmogenic analytical methods to study paleo-climate variability with focus on the Southern Hemisphere. Experience in using climate archives based on tree rings, speleothems, corals, lake/ocean sediments, ice or glacial deposits, and with a working knowledge in the role of cosmogenic radionuclides (i.e., C-14, Be-10, Al-26), U-series dating and stable isotopes (?18O and ?13C) related to paleo-environmental studies is required. The successful candidate will work in various aspects of paleo-climate variability related, for example, to glacial chronologies and cycles, Antarctic studies, landscape change, atmospheric and ocean circulation, or paleo-hydrology. The Institute's paleoclimate change project is supported within ANSTO and by Australasian universities and he or she will be encouraged to foster their own research directions in the above topics. Analytical work will involve measurements of C-14, Be-10 and Al-26 at our ANTARES and STAR Accelerator Mass Spectrometry Facility, and stable isotope and U-series dating at collaborating universities. A suite of chemistry laboratories for AMS sample preparation is also available. Experience in field excursions, sampling methods, relevant sample preparation techniques is also required. Familiarity with Accelerator Mass Spectrometry techniques is desirable
