Postdoc Opportunity in Ice Core Trace Gases

Edward Brook
Oregon State University Department of Geosciences invites applicants for two postdoctoral scholars in ice core trace gas geochemistry.  

One postdoc will work on new records of the history of atmospheric carbon dioxide over the last glacial termination from the new WAIS Divide Ice core (, and possibly other time periods during the last ice age.  

A second postdoc will develop novel measurements of methane and possibly other gases using laser spectroscopic techniques and apply them to the atmospheric history preserved in ice cores.  

Both positions require a Ph.D. by the time of appointment, excellent laboratory skills, hands on experience with analytical geochemistry (including some combination gas chromatography, spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, vacuum equipment, and/or related techniques), good written and oral communication skills, ability to collaborate, and willingness and ability to conduct polar fieldwork.  Opportunities to conduct research in international collaborating laboratories as part of the postdoc appointment may be available.  Anticipated start date for both positions is in Fall 2010.  

To apply, email cover letter, CV and names and contact information for at least three references to Dr. Ed Brook, [hidden email].  Positions are available pending funding for an initial one-year period, with possibility of renewal for a second year.  OSU is an AA/EOE.
