The Institut für Geologie und Paläontologie at the Westfälische
Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Germany offers a
*PhD position (Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin/Wissenschaftlicher
*in the field of stable isotope geochemistry/biogeochemistry*
(13 TV-L 75%)
for *three years to begin on 1st April 2017*. Current working hours are 29
hours and 52 minutes per week.
The position is offered within the framework of the DFG *research group
“CHARON”*. The overall research objective of CHARON relates to the
formation and diagenesis of carbonates. The present project centers on
sulfate (CAS)* as a key parameter for reconstructing the evolution of the
ocean-atmosphere system. Specifically, the project is aimed at developing a
quantitative understanding of sulfate incorporation and diagenesis of CAS
in dolomites and dolomitic limestones, as these rocks are key lithologies
in Earth System Science, specifically in (but not restricted to) the
Precambrian. *A central research issue is the tight coupling between
sulfate, microbial sulfate reduction and dolomite formation through Earth’s
*Required qualification*: MSc degree in earth sciences or a relevant field
*Desired qualification*: Applicants should have experience in the field of
light stable isotope analysis. The willingness to do field work and good
knowledge of the English language is expected.
The University of Münster is an equal opportunity employer and is committed
to increasing the proportion of senior women academics. Consequently, we
actively encourage applications by women. Female candidates with equivalent
qualifications and academic achievements will be preferentially considered
