2 PhD Positions in Experimental Petrology/Geochemistry
at ETH Zurich


The Institute of Geochemistry and Petrology invites applications for two PhDs whose topics will deal with the experimental determination of carbon isotope fractionation in high-temperature environments as relevant for the early Earth and with magmatic processes in the deep mantle.

Candidates should have either experimental or analytical experience, but most important is a strong interest in modern petrology and analytics. The successful candidates are expected to fulfil some laboratory and/or teaching duties. The positions are available as of summer 2017, the annual salary is 47.040 CHF.

At ETH, PhD completion is expected within 3 years. Inquiries or applications in form of a single pdf-file (including a brief statement of research interest) to: Max.Schmidt@erdw.ethz.ch.
