PhD position in isotope geochemistry of the Critical Zone
Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS)
The National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) is the largest fundamental science research organization in Europe, with laboratories located throughout France.
Geochemistry, Mineralogy, Petrology & Volcanology (GMPV)
This PhD project “Chemical weathering in the European Alps: insights from lithium and strontium isotopes in river basins” is fully-funded as part of the European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant “LAKE-SWITCH: Using lake sediments to reconstruct soil weathering trajectories over the Holocene”. The supervisory team will be composed of Dr. Mathieu Dellinger (CNRS researcher, EDYTEM, https://edytem.osug.fr/), Dr. Julien Bouchez (CNRS researcher, IPGP, www.ipgp.fr/fr) and Dr. Pierre Sabatier (Lecturer, EDYTEM).
The project is open to French and international students that have a Master’s degree in the area of geochemistry and/or Earth Sciences. Further evidence for outstanding academic pedigree and previous geochemical experience in working in a clean laboratory will be welcomed. Geographical mobility will be needed for conducting the isotopic measurements at IPGP in Paris as part as doctoral co-supervision. Finally, appreciation of fieldwork will be valued as the project includes several sampling trips.
