Two PhD positions in volcanology
Funding from the Swiss National Science Foundation is available for two PhD students to begin in the spring or fall 2022 for a project targeted at the physical and numerical characterization of key size-selective tephra-sedimentation processes (namely particle aggregation and settling-driven gravitational instabilities at the base of volcanic plumes and clouds) and of their relation to plume dynamics.
Assistant Professor (tenure track) in Geochronology and Geochemistry
The Faculty of Science of the University of Geneva invites applications for a professorship in geochronology and geochemistry, to be based in the Department of Earth Sciences.
The Department of Earth Sciences and its partners at the University of Lausanne provide a full range of outstanding analytical facilities, which allow state-of-the-art research (http://www.unige.ch/sciences/terre/en/). These existing infrastructures and the available expertise will provide a solid base to start constructing a new geochemistry group.
Assistant Professor (tenure track) in Limnogeology and Global Changes
The Faculty of Science of the University of Geneva invites applications for a professorship in Limnogeology and Global Changes, to be based in the Department of Earth Sciences.
We are looking for a candidate who will focus on lacustrine and marine sedimentary records to develop a creative and original research program on paleoenvironmental changes resulting from climate and human forcing on the Earth system. Possible domains of expertise include, but are not limited to: sedimentology, geophysical/geochemical field data acquisition, quantitative analysis of paleoclimate data, chemical/organic proxy methods, records of past climates and (deep)biosphere changes. The ideal candidate should have a strong background in geology, and participation in international programs such as ICDP/IODP would be an advantage.
Link to the full call and indications on how to apply:
- PhD in seismology/geophysics.
- Expertise in seismic data processing and tomography. - Advanced programming skills.
- Fluency in English.
- Experience in the geothermal sector or in the study of volcanic systems. - Experience in field-work
- Fluency in German and/or French
