We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to join our dynamic and rapidly growing network of leading scientists, industry partners and state-of-the-art analytical laboratories across Canada. The Multidisciplinary Applied Geochemistry Network (MAGNET) is an NSERC-funded industrial stream Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) program devoted to analytical, environmental and exploration geochemistry. The position is available September 1st 2016 (or possibly later) until the end of the program on March 31st 2018.
We currently have an opening for postdoctoral research in one of the following areas:
- Noble gases as tracers of aquitard integrity
- Origin, residence times and geochemical signatures of deep crustal fluids
Applicants are encouraged to develop and explore their own research interests within one of the above areas. Please consult the MAGNET website for further details about each topic. It is strongly recommended to contact the supervisor(s) to discuss the essence of the project before submitting a formal application.
Qualified candidates must have a recent PhD (within the last five years; excluding time off for parental leave) in the Earth/ocean/environmental sciences, chemistry, or a related field and should have a strong background in isotope geochemistry and mass spectrometric techniques, together with a solid publication record. Postdoctoral fellows will be expected to work closely with MAGNET faculty and collaborators, assist with program activities (e.g., online course, annual workshop) and provide mentorship to undergraduate, MSc and PhD trainees.
Complete applications will consist of (1) a CV (including list of publications), (2) a letter of interest detailing why you want to join MAGNET, your suitability for the position, and your research plan, and (3) three reference letters (sent directly from your referees). Applications should be sent to the MAGNET Program Coordinator Diane Hanano at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 15th 2016.
