The Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (EOAS) is seeking a post-doctoral researcher in detrital zircon geochronology. The successful candidate will undertake a project relating the isotopic and geochemical compositions of minerals in modern rivers to the geology exposed in their catchments. The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated ability to integrate geological concepts related to sediment transportation within a source-to-sink system and detrital geochronology. Background and experience with laboratory analytical methods and/or numerical methods of analyzing multi-variate detrital data sets is also required. The ability to integrate additional data sets (such as microXRF or petrology) into a quantitative interpretive framework would be considered an asset, as would a background in coding.
EOAS is a dynamic, inter-disciplinary Earth Sciences department, with research and teaching interests spanning the history of Earth and its functioning from the core to the stratosphere. (http://www.eoas.ubc.ca/).
The successful candidate will have completed their Ph.D. in a field closely related to the topics described above by the starting date and will be no more than 5 years from completion of their Ph.D. by the start date. This position has a 24-month duration and a salary of CAD$67,000. The successful candidate will be encouraged to apply for external funding and may be eligible for further internal awards and positions.
