The Division of Climate and Environmental Physics, Physics Institute,
University of Bern, opens a position for a

*PostDoc in Ice Core Science*

In the framework of the European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant
deepSLice the division for Climate and Environmental Physics, Physics
Institute, University of Bern, develops a new instrument to reconstruct
high-resolution multi-greenhouse gas records (CO2 and its isotopic
composition, CH4, N2O) on polar ice cores. This new method is a
prerequisite for many of the exciting ice core projects to be realized in
the coming years. Dependent on the release of funds we search within
deepSLice for a PostDoc (2 years with the option to extend to 5 years,
starting date as early 01.10.2015) *with a PhD in (environmental) physics,
(geo-) chemistry or a related field*

The PostDoc will build a novel semi-continuous sublimation system at the
University of Bern for full air extraction of small air samples in polar
ice cores. After the development phase, this system will be coupled to a
Quantum Cascade Laser Spectrometer also developed within deepSLice and used
in various ice core applications within the project.

The aptitude to develop new analytical methods is essential, experience
with gas analytical methods (gas chromatography, laser spectrometry etc.)
is desirable. The work of the PostDoc will take place in close
collaboration with scientists at the University of Bern and the Swiss
Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology Empa.
Accordingly, the ability to work in a team is essential.

The University of Bern is home of the Oeschger Centre for Climate Change
Research (http://www.oeschger.unibe.ch), the Graduate School of Climate
Sciences (http://www.climatestudies.unibe.ch) and the Division for Climate
and Environmental Physics (http://www.climate.unibe.ch), one of the leading
groups in ice core sciences. Together this provides an ideal environment
for Early Carreer Scientists.

Please, send your application including the usual documents (letter of
motivation, CV, degree certificates etc.) until the *31st of July 2015* to:

Prof. Hubertus Fischer <http://www.climate.unibe.ch/~hfischer>
Climate and Environmental Physics Division
University of Bern
Sidlerstrasse 5
CH-3012 Bern
