Postdoctoral position in Marine Geology / Geophysics
Application Due: 05-08-2014
The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) has a vacant postdoctoral position in "Seismic architecture of the southeast Greenland margin" for a period of two years.
The position is part of the new Marie Curie Initial Training Network GLANAM (Glaciated North Atlantic Margins) and available from 1 October 2014.
GLANAM network and scientific goals
The GLANAM network facilitates and coordinates research projects between seven academic and three industrial partners from Norway, UK and Denmark.
The scientific goal of GLANAM is to determine the controls on the development, in time and space, of glaciated continental margins with focus on the role of marine-based ice sheets, sedimentary processes, hydrocarbon systems, fluid flow and gas hydrate, and submarine mass movements. For a detail description of the GLANAM project please visit www.glanam.org<http://www.glanam.org./>
The network has employed 15 young researchers, who carry out individual research projects based at one of the full partners with secondments/shorter visits to other GLANAM partners. All 15 projects have focus on various aspects of glaciation of northern hemisphere margins. For a full list of all posts please visit www.glanam.org<http://www.glanam.org>
Postdoctoral project: Seismic architecture of the Northeast Greenland margin
The aim is to investigate the glacial sedimentary architecture of the NE Greenland margin with particular emphasis on the role of ice stream processes on continental margin evolution. This approach will produce information on (i) the spatial pattern and architecture of ice stream sediments, (ii) glacial morphology and sedimentary processes, and (iii) ice sheet history of this Arctic margin.
GEUS seismic and acoustic data, and other available relevant information, such as ODP wells will be used. Mapping and interpretation will be carried out using workstation tools (Landmark or Petrel). The researcher will play an active role in compiling the multi-source database and participate at international/national conferences. The project involves a planned 2 month secondment at Tromsø University, Norway.
Qualifications and requirements
Applicants must have a PhD degree (or equivalent qualification) in geology/geophysics with experience in seismic interpretation and proven research interest in glaciated continental margins.
Following the rules of mobility for Marie Curie Initial Training Networks, the candidates should not have been resident, or carried out their main activity in Denmark for more than 12 months in the previous 36 months. Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account.
Place of employment and place of work
