The Research School of Earth Sciences invites applications for a 2½ year
position (Level A) within the Biogeochemistry group. The post-doctoral
position is framed around marine biogeochemistry with an emphasis on
element and isotope cycling in the ocean. We are seeking a motivated person
to contribute to Australian Research Council funded projects in the
- Trace element and isotope cycling in the ocean, with an emphasis on
understanding micronutrient (e.g. iron and zinc) availability to
Elemental and isotope analysis of dissolved calcium, magnesium in coral
reef systems, to constrain biotic and abiotic calcium carbonate formation.
Research facilities to support this research include two Neptune
multi-collector ICPMS instruments, an Element XR high resolution ICPMS, a
Varian 820 quadrupole ICPMS, a Varian ICP-AES, an Ar-F 154/193nm excimer
laser system, a clean-laboratory and various wet chemistry laboratories.
The successful applicant will have a PhD degree in marine chemistry, marine
biogeochemistry or related field, with preference given to candidates with
trace element or isotope expertise. The candidate will be required to
assist with field work (e.g. Southern Ocean voyages and coral reef
sampling). Candidates should demonstrate an excellent emerginc publication
record relative to opportunity.
