Post-doctoral Research Associate in Igneous Petrology

University of Cambridge - Department of Earth Sciences

Cambridge, United Kingdom

The Department of Earth Sciences, University of Cambridge, is seeking a post-doctoral research associate (PDRA) in igneous petrology. The position is focused on providing powerful new constraints on Earth's mantle volatile budget. The project will develop carbon and nitrogen measurement by secondary ion mass spectrometry in natural volcanic glasses, employing microanalytical and experimental techniques, and apply these to a range of key natural samples. As part of the project you will work closely with collaborators from the University of Manchester and University of St Andrews, in addition to international partners. There is also the opportunity for fieldwork and sample collection.

Applications are invited from candidates with relevant expertise in igneous petrology and geochemistry, preferably with a strong background in microanalysis and/or experimental petrology. Expertise in programming, in particular of petrological modelling and statistical analysis of data is desirable. You will work as a part of a diverse and multi-disciplinary team that will shed new light on volatiles in the mantle, where they are stored, what their origins are, and how they are cycled through the Earth system.

The candidate will have (or be about to obtain) a PhD and preferably have postdoctoral experience in a relevant field. They will have significant experience in petrology and geochemistry, good communication skills, the ability to work in a team, good computing and data handling skills, and a track record of publication in peer-reviewed journals.
