Apologies for cross posting.

We are looking for a Post doc and PhD. Student for an ETH-Funded Project
aiming at reconstructing the pole-to-equator temperature gradient in the
Eocene based on clumped isotope analysis of palaeosol carbonates. Clumped
isotope analyses will be  complemented with organic geochemical and
compound-specific hydrogen isotope analysis of the associated organic
matter. The project is a collaboration with Dr. Tim White at Penn State
University and will focus on the analysis on a large set of well-dated
palaeosols in a transect from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego. The post-doctoral
fellow is initially funded for a year and will focus principally on the
north-American sites, the PhD student is funded for 3 years and will
concentrate principally on the south American sites. Both projects will
require field work.

We are looking for motivated individuals, with a good grasp of laboratory
techniques, previous experience with clumped isotope analysis would be a
plus but is not a prerequisite.  Ideally both  positions would start in
autumn 2014, latest possible start is February 2015
For further information contact Stefano Bernasconi directly.

Applicants should send a cover letter, CV, contact details of 2 referees by
e-mail to stefano.bernasconi at erdw.ethz.ch
