The Institute of Geography and Geology at the Faculty of Mathematics
and Natural Science of the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt University of Greifswald
(EMAU) invites applications for the position of a
Junior-Professor (W1) for Quaternary geology

We are looking for a motivated Quaternary geologist to joint our
geoscientific research unit. The Institute of Geography and Geology is
specialised on the usage and sustainability of natural georesources
and therefore contribution and strengthening of this current focus
will be viewed favourably. The applicant should have experience in
many of the following aspects: Pleistocene and Holocene sediments,
glacial drift and till petrography/geochemistry, glacial processes and
sediment deposition, glaciotectonics, geotope site protection and a
range of state-of-the-art analytical methods of Quaternary geological
study. The institute has well equipped analytical laboratories with
facilities for water, mineral and rock analyses. Equipment includes
laser-ICP ablation, AAS, XRF, XRD, SEM and HRTEM.
Teaching duties will be 4 hours per week during term time and involve
responsibility for Quaternary geology and petrography lectures and
practical courses in our modulated B.Sc and M.Sc. programme. The
successful candidate should have obtained a doctoral degree in
geosciences within the last five years. A commitment to undertaking
some administrative duties is expected.
The employment conditions are based on 62 Abs.  1 of the
“Landeshochschulgesetz M-V”, which require a completed study at an
institute of higher education, adequate teaching abilities and a
special ability to scientific research study that in the rule should
be demonstrated by doctoral promotion work of high standard and
published achievements. Employment is initially for a term of 3 years
