Postdoctoral Research Associate Position: Quaternary Paleoceanography in the Amundsen Sea

Durham University (Department of Geography)


We seek to appoint a Post-doctoral Research
Associate (PDRA) for a period of two years on a project reconstructing
the Quaternary paleoceanography of the Amundsen Sea. The PDRA will
generate records of ocean temperature change over the
last 25,000 years in the Amundsen Sea using organic geochemistry
analysis, and a focus on the TEX86 proxy. The post contributes to a
multi-disciplinary research project funded by the Natural Environment
Research Council (NERC), with partners at British Antarctic
Survey and the University of Bristol, which seeks to understand the
links between ocean temperature change and ice-sheet retreat in the
Amundsen Sea sector of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. The PDRA will join
the Ice Sheets and Sea Level research group at Durham,
and will have access to an extensive suite of organic geochemistry
facilities including GC, GCMS, GC-IRMS and LC-MS. The post will start
from 1st January 2016 or as soon as possible thereafter, for 24 months.


Application closing date: 7th December 2015.
