Stellenangebot: PhD am Institut für Isotopengeologie der ETH Zürich

PhD position in isotope geochemistry at ETH Zürich

We invite applications by geoscientists with a strong interest in isotope geo-chemistry and cosmochemistry for a PhD position in the Isotope Geochemistry group at ETH Zurich. The PhD project will aim at determining the timescales that led to the formation and chemical differentiation of some of the earliest planetary bodies in the solar system. The research will involve application of the short-lived 182Hf-182W chronometer to a range of meteoritic materials, the de-termination of their noble gas isotope compositions, and physical modeling of cosmic-ray induced processes in meteorite parent bodies.

The Isotope Geochemistry group at ETH Zurich studies a wide range of prob-lems in geo- and cosmochemistry and several of our ongoing research projects fit very well within the scheme of the PhD project. The student will conduct his/her research using state-of-the-art analytical facilities in a stimulating re-search environment and will have access to the full range of educational and laboratory facilities at the Department of Earth Sciences at ETH Zurich.
Highly motivated students with a diploma or Master’s degree in Earth Sciences, Physics or Chemistry are strongly encouraged to apply. The position can be filled at the earliest convenience, preferably before June 2009. Funding through the Swiss National Science Foundation is for three years, and possibly extend-able for a fourth year.

Applications with a curriculum vitae, publication list, statement of individual re-search interests, and names of up to three potential referees should be sent to Thorsten Kleine: Evaluation of applications will start im-mediately and will continue until the position is filled. To ensure full considera-tion, applications must arrive by March 15th, 2009.
