Come and work with us at Lund University, Sweden! We have an opening for 
a PhD position within the project "Tracing hypoxia during warm periods 
in the Baltic Sea region - using plasma analytical methods and 
synchrotron X-ray spectroscopy".

Deadline: 2016-08-01
Keywords: foraminiferal geochemistry, paleoceanography and 

In the Baltic Sea region, several periods of warmth and large 
environmental change have occurred since the most recent glaciation, and 
there is evidence that these periods were also marked by deoxygenation. 
Reconstructing past oxygenation conditions is difficult because few 
quantitative proxies exist for oxygen levels, and there are currently 
many efforts to improve and develop better proxies for past oxygenation 
of bottom waters. Recently, we have focused on Mn/Ca in benthic 
foraminifera as a potential proxy variable for low oxygen conditions. In 
this project we plan to use a combination of inductively coupled plasma 
(ICP) - and synchrotron-based methods to analyze Mn concentration, 
distribution, and speciation and other trace elements in foraminiferal 
shells. The objectives of this work are: 1) to quantitatively 
reconstruct marine environmental conditions, focusing primarily on 
bottom water oxygenation in the Baltic Sea region, during periods of 
warming and large environmental change and 2) improve the tools we use 
to reconstruct past environments by using a combination of experimental 
work and synchrotron - and plasma based methods.
