please distribute this announcement for a postdoctoral position in
paleoecology in Chile!
many thanks,


The recently funded Millennium Nucleus in “Paleoclimate of the Southern
Hemisphere” invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in
paleoclimate and paleoenvironments. The main goal of this 3-year grant is
to understand the evolution of the coupled atmosphere, ocean, cryosphere
and biosphere during and since the Last Glacial Maximum. More specifically
our study areas include western Patagonia and the adjacent Pacific
Ocean. We are an interdisciplinary research group that covers the
disciplines of atmospheric sciences, Earth System modeling,
paleoceanography, paleoecology and glacial geology.

Successful candidates must have a PhD and research experience in one or
more of the following fields: Quaternary paleoclimate, sedimentology,
glacial stratigraphy and geomorphology, isotope geochemistry, paleoecology.
Field work experience in remote and desolate regions is highly desirable,
as well as willingness and ability to conduct independent research while
being a team player.  You will join an active research group that addresses
the study of paleoclimate combining empirical and modelling approaches,
with ample opportunities for fieldwork in Patagonia.

Salary is assigned according to CONICYT standards, equivalent to ca. 32,000
USD per year, which corresponds roughly to 2.5 times the Chilean per capita
average income.

Interested applicants should send their CV and a brief research proposal
(up to 2 pages) not later than November 15th 2014 to Dr. Patricio Moreno (
pimoreno at uchile.cl) or Maisa Rojas (maisa at dgf.uchile.cl*)*. The decision
will be communicated as soon as a candidate has been chosen. The selected
candidate is expected to start during January 2015. For more information
don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Rojas or Dr. Moreno.
