We seek to appoint a postdoctoral fellow in the field of geomicrobiology. The postdoctoral fellow will study the nucleation and growth of carbonate minerals in ineraction with various organic matters and trace elements (e.g., Rare Earth Element).
As a postdoctoral fellow you will use your strong background in geochemistry and conduct research with expertise in microscopy and chemical analyses (XRD Stable isotopes, HPLC, GC). The work will include experimental design, various microscopy techniques and geochemical characterization of the mineral product.
Postdoctoral positions are appointed primarily for purposes of research. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country.
In the appointment process, special attention will be given to research skills within geochemistry with expertise in microscopy techniques (SEM-EDS, TEM, Confocal) and chemical analyses (XRD Stable isotopes, HPLC, GC). The successful candidate for this position is an indipendent person who likes to take initiatives, is driven by curiosity, enjoy networking and interdisciplinary approaches.
