Post-doctoral Researcher in Speleothem Geochemistry and Paleoclimatology
Duration: full-time, 18 months starting 1st October 2017
We offer a postdoctoral position focussing on paleoclimate proxies in carbonate speleothems. The successful candidate will join the research group working on paleoclimate natural archives in the frame of the interdisciplinary EU-funded Ectopyr Project at SETE.
The researcher will be in charge of establishing geochemical time-series, in particular from stable isotope proxies in speleothems sampled in several Pyrenean karstic caves, and will lead the analyses and interpretation of these series in terms of paleoclimate. He / she will be invited to take part in the meetings and collective discussions of the ECTOPYR project and to interact with the other components of the project as well as with the Spanish and Andorrans partners.
Qualifications and competences
SETE is a CNRS - Toulouse University joint research unit of some 60 staff, located in Moulis (Ariège, S. France). Research themes are centred on the impact of global changes on continental ecosystems and biodiversity.
The successful candidate will work in the frame of the interdisciplinary Poctefa Interreg project ECTOPYR (Pyrenean Ectotherms, bio-indicators of climate change) and specifically in the project action Paleoclim 'Paleoclimate Natural Archives - impact of past fluctuations on the diversity of Pyrenean territories". The aim of Paleoclim is to decipher changes of Pyrenean climate during the Holocene.
All analytical facilities required for this work are available on site in Moulis or at the Toulouse University platforms.
