Research will examine zircons and melt inclusions from Hadean to Recent employing SIMS and correlative techniques for analysis of age and chemistry, including volatiles and stable isotopes. Previous experience with one or more of the following areas is required: igneous geochemistry, stable and radiogenic isotopes, zircons, SIMS, SEM, EPMA, or mass-spectrometry.
Please submit by e-mail: a cover letter, reprints of papers, and CV with the contact information of 3 or more references to John Valley, Dept. of Geoscience at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be reviewed starting March 15 and will be accepted until positions are filled.
The University of Wisconsin is an equal opportunity employer, and we encourage applications from candidates who contribute to an inclusive and diverse environment.
Funding available up to 3 years from ERC Synergy grant, Monitoring Earth Evolution through Time (MEET). Download description at:
