PhD fellow in Sedimentology

Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a PhD scholarship in Sedimentology commencing 1 May 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.  
 
Description of the scientific environment  
The PhD research will be based at the Research Group Sedimentary Systems at the Section for Geology (Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management). The Research Group undertakes studies of Earth´s sedimentary record to reconstruct ancient environments and processes, Earth geo- and biological evolution and climate history. The Research Group has a long-term expertise in field- based studied of Mesozoic sedimentary successions in the North Atlantic region.  
 
Project description  
The Late Triassic Fleming Fjord Formation of East Greenland is composed of an up to 300 m thick succession of vertebrate-bearing lake deposits. The PhD project comprises field-based investigations of these lake deposits and will be centered around the following activities: 1) description of sedimentary facies and interpretation of depositional processes and lake environment, 2) description of sedimentary cycles and interpretation of lake evolution and cycle formation in relation to climate, and 3) an attempt to constraint the age of the vertebrate-bearing sites in the succession. The field-based studies of the sediments will be supplemented by laboratory analysis of rock colour, magnetic susceptibility and selected geochemical/mineralogical parameters. The project will be carried out in close collaboration with a research partner at the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Rutgers University, USA and data on climate stratigraphy will be supported by investigations of magnetochronology.
