2 PhD Positions in Radiocarbon Biogeochemistry 201 views

ETH Zurich is inviting applications for 2 PhD Positions in Radiocarbon Biogeochemistry.

About the position:
  • The work package led by ETH will examine radiocarbon inventories of dissolved and particulate carbon phases in major river watersheds as well as in corresponding receiving (lake) basins.
  • The first work package (ETH PhD #1) will focus on spatial and temporal variability in 14C characteristics of dissolved and particulate carbon species in rivers draining different Swiss ecoregions.
  • The second work package (ETH PhD #2) will examine carbon inventories, residence times and transport pathways as a function of soil and drainage basin properties.

Each project will involve fieldwork and laboratory work, including extensive 14C measurements by accelerator mass spectrometry, as well as data modeling, interpretation and integration.

  • The work packages will be undertaken in close collaboration with co-investigators and project partners at ETH, WSL, the Swiss Federal Institutes of Aquatic Sciences and Technology (Eawag), and the Institut für Seeforschung (ISF-LUBW).


  • Applications are open for highly motivated candidates for 2 fully funded 48-month PhD positions (salary according to SNF guidelines).
  • Applicants must hold a relevant Master’s degree or equivalent (e.g., earth or environmental sciences, chemistry or physics), with prior experience in analytical and quantitative numerical methods.
  • Candidates must demonstrate independence, creativity, and strong technical skills.
  • Applicants must possess fluency in spoken and written English is essential, and a good level in German is useful.

Starting date: The PhD positions should begin before January 1, 2021.
