*Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clumped Isotope Geochemistry*

*Department of Geology and Geophysics, Texas A&M University*

The Department of Geology and Geophysics at Texas A&M University, the
Stable Isotope Geosciences Facility (SIGF), and the Berg-Hughes Center for
Petroleum and Sedimentary Systems (BHC) are pleased to announce the
availability of a postdoctoral fellowship in clumped isotope geochemistry
funded through the Berg-Hughes Center. The postdoctoral fellow will be
responsible for (1) assisting with set-up of a new clumped isotope ratio
mass spectrometer and preparation system, (2) methods development for
clumped isotope analyses of carbonate minerals, and (3) studies of clumped
isotope reordering and its application to one or more of the following
areas: basin thermal history, carbonate diagenesis, and Earth’s climate

The appointment will be for three years. Outstanding young scientists with
excellent technical abilities, good communication skills, and an eagerness
to conduct novel research are encouraged to apply. Applicants must have
attained their Ph.D., or have a letter of degree completion, prior to
start. The candidate must have extensive experience in clumped isotope
analyses of carbonates by isotope ratio mass spectrometry (including
trouble-shooting and problem-solving), and a solid understanding of
carbonate geology and geochemistry.

A mass spectrometry system has been purchased as part of a $5M allocation
to support mass spectrometry at Texas A&M provided by the Chancellor of the
System, within the auspices of the Stable Isotope Partnership for Ecology,
Environment, and Energy Research (SIPEEER) between the Colleges of
Geosciences and Agriculture and Life Sciences. Delivery is expected in late

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, brief statement
of research interests, and the names and addresses of three referees to Ethan
L. Grossman <http://geoweb.tamu.edu/people/faculty/grossmanethan.html> (
e-grossman at tamu.edu). Reviews of applications will begin April 24 with the
expected start date in summer or fall 2017. Contact Ethan Grossman for
further information.
