Dr. Mark Abbott at the Lake Sediment Geochemistry Laboratory, University of
Pittsburgh - see http://www.pitt.edu/~mabbott1/climate/mark/index.html.
The candidate is expected to collaborate with ongoing paleolimnological
projects reconstructing late-Quaternary paleoclimate and human-landscape
interactions using geochemical and stable isotope methods. Projects
typically involve using multiple methods including basic sedimentology,
geochronology (210Pb and 137Cs, AMS 14C), stable isotope geochemistry
(carbonate δ18O and δ13C, organic matter δ13C and δ15N), inorganic sediment
geochemistry (scanning X-ray Fluorescence, trace metals via ICP-MS), and/or
The successful candidate should have strong analytical skills and hold a
PhD in geology, environmental science or a related field. Documented
fieldwork (collecting lake cores) and laboratory experience (explained
above) is desirable. The position is for 1 year with the possibility of
extension of up to 3 years and starts as soon as possible. Interested
candidates should send a CV, cover letter, and the names and contact
information of 3 references (name, address, email, and phone number) to Dr.
