Subject title:
Postdoctoral fellow in Quaternary geology and palaeoclimatology at the Department of Earth Science
 
Text:
At the Department of Earth sciences there is a vacant position as postdoctoral fellow in Quaternary
geology and palaeoclimatology.
The postdoctoral position is a fixed-term post, the chief objective being to qualify the selected candidate
for work in senior positions in their disciplines. The term of employment for this position is 4 years of which
up to 25 % is designated to teaching and/or supervision of students.
It is not possible for any person to work under more than one temporary appointment as postdoctoral
fellow for the same institution.
The position will be attached to the project DATED (Database of the Eurasian Deglaciation dates and
GIS-based reconstruction of the Eurasian Ice Sheet) led by Professor John Inge Svendsen. The project
will be carried out as a contribution to and in collaboration with the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research.
One of the tasks will be to serve as a data manager for the project. The research will mainly be to further
develop the existing database and improve the existing ice sheet reconstructions over the last glaciation
(40,000-9000 years ago). The research will include assessment and compilation of relevant
geochronological (14C, OSL, TL, 10Be, etc.) and geomorphological (ice-marginal features etc) data that
are needed for making new synthesis. It is also expected that the successful candidate will do field work
and analytical work to obtain new results in areas where the present information is meagre or uncertain.
It is required that the candidate has good knowledge within the field of glacial geology, the relevant dating
methods and their applications. It is also necessary that the candidate has appropriate training in data
processing. The interpretational work, and indeed the publication of results, will demand some knowledge in
GIS and it is therefore desirable that the applicant has some training within this field and/or that the person
is prepared to work up the necessary qualifications.
Applicants must have achieved a Norwegian doctorate in geosciences (or other relevant natural sciences)
or equivalent education abroad, or have presented the dissertation for assessment by the closing date for
applications. It is a prerequisite that the dissertation has been approved before appointment is granted.
Starting salary on grade 57 (code 1352/pay framework 24.1) in the Civil Service pay grade table; currently
NOK 448 400 per year, about 55 300 EUR/year; following ordinary meriting regulations (wage range 57-
64). In the case of particularly highly qualified applicants a higher salary may be considered.
For further information about the position please contact Professor John Inge Svendsen, phone: +47 55 58
