Southern Hemisphere moraine
sequences provide an importantconstraint
on both the timing and mechanism of past climatic changes, and glacial deposits
in the North Island of New Zealand (NZ) have not previously been studied in
detail. GNS Science http://www.gns.cri.nz/ staff in conjunction with the NZ Department of Conservation are
undertaking an integrated mapping study of TongariroNational
Park. As part of this project, the need and
opportunity has arisen to undertake detailed mapping and dating of the late-Quaternary glacial
sequences on the Ruapehu and Tongariro volcanoes.
project will involve field work, sampling of glacial deposits for surface
exposure dating and the development of a numerical model of the Ruapehu
glaciers, past and present.
The project involves a fully funded
(fees plus stipend) Ph.D. scholarship. The ideal candidate will have an M.Sc.
degree awarded with distinction including Physical Geography/Earth Sciences and
chemistry, mathematics or physics. Experience in geochemical and/or
glaciological techniques and GIS would be an advantage, as would a publication
from thecandidate’s MSc thesis.
Interested applicants should send a CV and email addresses of two referees to:
