The Opportunity

The School of Earth Atmosphere and Environment (SEAE) is pleased to welcome applications from talented and ambitious scientists to fill four new three-year research fellowship (Level A or B) positions and to be part of a dynamic research group that aims to establish the origin and evolution of continents, from crust to lithospheric roots, and their role in the long term development of the Earth system.

Specific research topics could include one of the following: composition and formation of early continental crust; geochemical tracers of lithospheric and complementary mantle evolution; geodynamic modelling of crust formation; analysis of chemical, sedimentary and tectonic processes that bias the rock record; constraining when plate tectonics commenced on Earth, numerical modelling of convergent margins, orogenic belts and supercontinent cycles; impact of crustal evolution on the Earth system. You should have demonstrated skills in one of the following areas: isotope and trace element geochemistry, geodynamics and numerical modelling, and igneous, metamorphic or sedimentary geology.

You will conduct research of the highest international quality in a team of like-minded individuals. You will publish your results in world-leading journals and present them to your peers at major national and international conferences.

If you feel that you have the skills and experience to make this role a success, your application is most welcomed.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to " How to apply for Monash Jobs"
