> PhD student position:   Organic Geochemistry of the Ediacaran/Cambrian
> The Max-Planck-Research-Group ‘Organic Paleobiogeochemistry’ (
www.bgc-jena.mpg.de/~challmann) has an opening for a dynamic and highly
motivated PhD student to explore organismic diversity, environmental
conditions and nutrient cycling across the Ediacaran/Cambrian boundary in
multiple well-preserved correlative localities.
> During the 3-year project (extension possible) the candidate will have
the opportunity to perform fieldwork and attain proficiency with
wet-chemical techniques, GC-MS analyses of biomarkers as well as bulk and
compound specific stable isotope analyses. Candidates will be encouraged to
enroll in specific courses at the University of Bremen and the MPI for
Biogeochemistry. Successful candidates should have a recent degree (Diplom,
M.Sc. or equivalent), ideally in geosciences, as well as demonstrated
experience in organic geochemistry or environmental chemistry. Proficiency
of the English language, both spoken and written, is essential. The work
location is Bremen, Germany (MARUM). The ideal starting date lies in fall
2014, but is flexible. International candidates are highly encouraged to
apply. Applications (motivation letter, CV, list of publications and/or
presentations, short statement of research achievements and interests) and
inquiries should be sent electronically to Christian Hallmann (
challmann at bgc-jena.mpg.de).
> Review of applications starts immediately and will close on July 31st.
> The Max-Planck-Society is committed to employing more handicapped
individuals and especially encourages them
> to apply. The Max-Planck-Society seeks to increase the number of women in
those areas where they are under-
> represented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
