Job description

In the framework of the Mesmic Scientific Hub (Metal in Environmental Systems Microbiology), E2S UPPA (I-Site E2S – Energy Environment Solution https://organisation.univ-pau.fr/fr/nos-atouts/des-labels-d-excellence/le-label-i-site-avec-le-projet-e2s.html) and the University of Pau, France (https://www.univ-pau.fr/) invite applications from highly qualified individuals for a 3-year postdoctoral fellow position (PDF) to start in 2019.

The successful applicant will work at the IPREM Institute on the dynamic and associated isotopic fractionation of iron in the environment (https://iprem.univ-pau.fr/fr/index.html).

The position will consist in:

Developing the measurement of the isotopic composition of iron species using MC-ICPMS and method application in contrasted environments Performing experiments to trace abiotic and biotic isotopic fractionation of Fe under environmental conditions.

Working conditions

Hosting laboratory: IPREM, UMR CNRS 5254, Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour

Localisation address: IPREM, Technopôle Helioparc, Pau, France

Starting period: Mid 2019
