The Origins Laboratory of the Department of the Geophysical Sciences and the Enrico Fermi Institute at the University of Chicago (originslab.org) seeks applicants for a postdoctoral researcher position in isotope geochemistry-cosmochemistry. Although different backgrounds will be considered, experience in clean laboratory procedures and multicollector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICPMS) techniques is especially desirable. The main themes that are being developed are (i) mass-dependent isotope variations for tracing geo-bio cycles and igneous processes, (ii) stable isotope anomalies for characterizing the heterogeneity of the nebula and identifying new presolar phases, and (iii) radiogenic isotopes for constraining early solar system chronology. Completion of the Ph.D. is required. Initial appointment is for one year, renewable up to 2 times contingent upon good progress. Applications must be received by July 31, 2014; applications received after this date may be considered if the position is not filled.
A resume and the names of three references should be sent to Nicolas Dauphas (firstname.lastname@example.org). The University of Chicago is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
