Research Fellow in Ice Core Geochemistry

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in ice core geochemistry and past greenhouse gas variability. The successful candidate is to be employed by Northumbria University to work as a researcher on the Royal Society funded project ‘Augmenting ice core records with continuous histories of CO2, CH4 and N2O” (RGF\EA\181047). The Postdoctoral Researcher will develop methods to measure the concentration and isotopic composition of atmospheric gases trapped in polar ice cores. The successful candidate will work closely with researchers at the British Antarctic Survey, University of Bern and Oregon State University to generate new data on existing Antarctic ice cores and will be expected to disseminate the results in peer-reviewed journals and at conferences.

The ideal candidate will have expert knowledge in geochemistry with an emphasis on stable isotope mass spectrometry. Experience in Quaternary Science, greenhouse gas biogeochemistry, ice core gas geochemistry and other palaeoclimate methods is desirable.

Candidates will be expected to disseminate research findings in peer-reviewed publications and/or international conferences.  Applicants must hold a PhD degree (or close to completion) in Earth Science, Geology, Physical Geography, Atmospheric Chemistry or related discipline.

Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow in Geography and Environmental Sciences

We are currently seeking to appoint a Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow to further develop our research profile and activity.

We are particularly interested in high-quality applications from candidates who will either align with our areas of existing strength, or support us in growing capacity in allied areas. Current research themes in the Department include extreme environments, cryospheric science, palaeoenvironmental reconstruction, bioavailability of environmental pollutants, ecological resilience, carbon cycling, sustainable development, risk reduction, creative industries, identities and inequality, media convergence, everyday b/ordering and visual methodologies.

You will have the opportunity to demonstrate your extensive knowledge and subject expertise through individual and collaborative academic activity. Successful candidates will be selected according to the excellence of their research profile and plans (candidates are encouraged to include a two-page research plan in their application), regardless of their area of research interest.

Posts are for three years with the expectation of moving to a permanent academic contract (subject to the usual criteria). For more information about the Department and its research please visit our homepage.

For informal enquiries about these Fellowships please contact the Head of Department, Professor Ben Brock, benjamin.brock@northumbria.ac.uk, or the Subject Lead for Physical Geography and Environmental Sciences: Professor Hilmar Gudmundsson: hilmar.gudmundsson@northumbria.ac.uk
