Job description

The Dept. of Geological Sciences at Stockholm University, Sweden, seeks a qualified applicant for a two year post-doctoral position to investigate the tectonic evolution of the remote Koyukuk Basin in the Alaskan wilderness. Outdoor skills and experience are desirable. The project focuses on geochemical and U-Pb analyses via LA-ICP MS (Thermo X-series II coupled to a NWR193 excimer laser) and SIMS (Cameca 1280 high-resolution ion-microprobe with a Hyperion source). LA-ICP skills are essential and experience with a Thermo X-series is advantageous. Stockholm offers a stimulating environment for geochemistry and geochronology, with a wide range of other analytical capabilities.

This position is part of an international Arctic research program led by Prof. V. Pease. The successful applicant can begin as soon as January 2019 and preferably before May 2019. Interested persons should send their application, including CV, contact details of two academic referees, and statement of research interests, before 15 Dec to Victoria Pease (vicky.pease@geo.su.se).
