Postdoctoral fellowship in paleomagnetism

PROJET DESCRIPTION

The Institut des sciences de la mer de Rimouski (ISMER) of the Université du Québec à Rimouski (Rimouski, Québec, Canada) is seeking a candidate for a postdoctoral fellowship in paleomagnetism. The project will focus on geomagnetic field modulation of the production rate of cosmogenic isotopes during the Holocene.

EXPECTED STARTING DATE

Fall 2016

LOCATION

Institut des sciences de la mer de Rimouski (ISMER) de l’Université du Québec à Rimouski (Rimouski, Québec, Canada). Close collaboration with the Centre de Recherche et d’Enseignement de Géosciences de l’Environnement (CEREGE) et l’Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP).

FELLOWSHIP

For this project, a fellowship of 50 000 $CAN is available for 1 year, with a possible extension of up to 2 additional years.

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS

The candidate will have a PhD in Earth Sciences (physical geography, geology, geological engineering, oceanography, or a related discipline) and a strong background in paleomagnetism and sedimentology. A solid practical knowledge of instruments commonly used in paleomagnetism and relevant experience at sea or in the field are also required. Finally, some knowledge of French will be an advantage, but is not a requirement, and experience in student supervision would be an asset.

HOW TO APPLY

Please send all the documents listed below in one PDF file to
Professor Guillaume St-Onge (guillaume_st-onge@uqar.ca) :

1) cover letter ;
2) CV ;
3) a list of practical and technical skills ;
4) names and contact information of two potential referees ;

Review of applications will begin now and continue until the position is filled.
