Postdoc in the field of Physics of Ice, Climate and Earth, Niels Bohr Institute

The Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a postdoc position in Physics of Ice, Climate and Earth (PICE) commencing 01.02.2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The fully funded project aims at identifying methane sources from the isotopic composition of methane measured on air entrapped in polar ice sheets. During the last glacial period methane concentrations changed rapidly over Dansgaard-Oeschger events and it has been suggested that changes in tropical sources are responsible for the change (e.g. Rhodes et al., Science, 348, 1016-1019, 10.1126/science.1262005, 2015). The postdoc will form a team with a PhD candidate working on the same project but with different tasks. The project has an extensive experimental component including building/modifying part of the existing measurement system. We are therefore looking for experimentally skilled applicants preferentially with experience in mass spectrometry.

The postdoc’s primary duty is the methane research project but may extend to other projects and include teaching.

Further information on PICE at the Niels Bohr Institute can be found at https://www.nbi.ku.dk/english/research/pice/. Inquiries about the position can be made to Prof. Thomas Blunier, Niels Bohr Institute, blunier@nbi.ku.dk, +45 35 32 05 84.

The position is open from 01. February 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter. This is a time-limited position of up to 34 months.

The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.

The deadline for applications is 24. November 2019, 23:59 GMT +1. The position will remain open until filled.
