Post-doctoral Research Associate in modelling of mantle dynamics and volatile circulation

Reference Number: 001827
Post: Post Doctoral Research Associate
Department: Department of Earth Sciences
Contract Type: Full Time, Fixed Term - 36 months
Grade: Grade 7
Closing Date: 21st May 2016 (11.30pm)

Job Description

This post is part of a NERC funded consortium on "The Feedback Between Volatiles and Mantle Dynamics", which includes team members from UCL, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, and Durham. The aim of this consortium is to understand the role of water and other volatiles on the mantle dynamics of the Earth and the operation of plate tectonics through time. This consortium is one of three funded consortia on "Volatiles, Geodynamics & Solid Earth Controls on the Habitable Planet". More information on the consortia is available at

We are seeking to recruit a PDRA who will numerically model the volatile exchange between the deep Earth and the exosphere and the related secular evolution of mantle dynamics using spherical 3D mantle dynamics models.

The postdoctoral research position will be full-time, fixed term (3 years), based at Durham University, UK. The successful applicant will work as part of the larger consortium team and interact with the other consortia in NERC's Deep Volatile Programme.
