The Isotope Geochemistry Group (Institute of Geochemistry and Petrology) at the Department of Earth Sciences is offering a
PhD Position in Isotope CosmochemistryThe PhD project includes geochemical investigations to evaluate the origin and composition of the volatile elements in the solar system. The work will focus on noble gases and their carriers in pristine solar system materials. Noble gases are an important tool to disentangle processes in the early solar system.
(ii) search for unknown, isotopically anomalous phases in meteorites to better characterize nucleosynthesis in stars, and
We seek a highly self-motivated, team-minded, mature and independent individual interested in experimental work. A Master or comparable degree in a subject related to the PhD project, such as Earth Sciences, Mineralogy, Astronomy, Physics or Chemistry is required. Experience in analytical research, particular in mass spectrometry and isotope geo- or cosmochemistry, is advantageous. Good communication and writing skills including proficiency in English and a flexible, reliable and accurate working style are essential.
