Junior researcher in Tectonics and Resources

The Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) is one of Germany's leading research universities. The University draws its strengths from both the diversity and the proximity of scientific and engineering disciplines on a single, coherent campus. This highly dynamic setting enables students (m/f/d) and researchers (m/f/d) to work across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties.

The newly established Tectonics and Resources Group at the Institute of Geology, Mineralogy and Geophysics invites applications for a junior researcher (TV-L E13 auf Zeit) with a focus on the geodynamic evolution of Precambrian mountain belts and/or the formation of hydrothermal ore deposits contained within them. The starting date is January 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter. The appointment is initially for three years. The successful applicant is expected to conduct research in the area of expertise, publish in internationally accredited journals and obtain external research funds. Other work responsibilities include teaching at the BSc and MSc level. The load of teaching will be calculated according to §3 of Lehrverpflichtungsverordnung (state of North Rhine-Westphalia).

Travel expenses for interviews cannot be refunded.

At Ruhr-Universität Bochum, we wish to promote careers of women in areas in which they have been underrepresented, and we would therefore like to encourage female candidates to send us their applications. Applications by suitable candidates with severe disabilities and other applicants with equal legal status are likewise most welcome.

Applicants should have a doctoral degree in Earth Sciences and a strong background in tectonics, petrology and economic geology. Applications, including a curriculum vitae, list of publications, degree certificates and a letter detailing research and teaching interests should be emailed as a single pdf file by October 20, 2019 to Annika Dziggel (annika.dziggel@ruhr-uni-bochum.de), who should also be contacted with any questions regarding the position. Further information about the Institute of Geology, Mineralogy and Geophysics can be found at http://www.gmg.ruhr-uni-bochum.de.

The Ruhr-University Bochum is an equal opportunity employer.
