Postdoctoral Research Opportunity

Compound specific stable isotopes of leaf waxes
University of Notre Dame

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences at
the University of Notre Dame (http://ceees.nd.edu/) seeks a highly
motivated postdoctoral research associate in the field of biogeochemistry
to examine compound specific isotopes from sedimentary leaf waxes. Research
targets a better understanding of vegetation response to environmental
change and will assess the spatial variability and fidelity of the
hydrologic and vegetation information recorded in leaf wax lipid δD and δ13C
values. Results will integrate with survey and ancient DNA data and be
placed in a statistical framework to address prairie/forest dynamics and
the impact of land use changes. This position is in collaboration with the
Department of Biological Sciences (http://biology.nd.edu/) and
Environmental Change Initiative (http://environmentalchange.nd.edu/) at the
University of Notre Dame.

The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in biogeochemistry, organic
geochemistry, paleoclimatology or related disciplines. Hands-on experience
with GC-IRMS and organic geochemical laboratory techniques is required. We
seek a candidate who will work well in a collaborative environment and who
will interact with other scientists and students. Excellent verbal and
written communication skills are required. This is a two year (initial year
with renewal upon satisfactory performance), full time position with
benefits starting as early as February 2014 (or as close to this date as
possible). Applicants should indicate in their letter of interest when they
could join our research program if offered a position.

Please send a cover letter outlining research interests, CV, and names and
contact information of three references in a single PDF file to:
mberke at nd.edu. The priority deadline for applications is November 15th,
2013, but the position will remain open until filled. Please direct all
questions about the position to Dr. Melissa Berke at the above email
address.* *
