Postdoctoral position in Marine Micropaleontology and Paleoceanography at the Department of Geoscience, Aarhus University

The Paleoceanography and Paleoclimate Group at the Department of Geoscience, Aarhus University, Denmark, invites applications for a position in marine micropaleontology and paleoceanography at the postdoctoral level. The successful candidate will be part of a research group studying Holocene and late Quaternary paleoclimate and paleoceanography of the North Atlantic region.

The postdoctoral project is part of a large international EU Horizon 2020 project, ECOTIP, on the effect of climate change on ecosystems and biota in the Arctic region. The role of Aarhus University in the project is to provide the long-term perspective on these changes during recent millennia.

The position has a fixed term of 2 years, starting as soon as possible, or whenever the successful applicant is available.

Job description
The postdoctoral project will focus on investigating the link between temporal changes in climate and biodiversity and ecosystems changes in the Greenland and North Atlantic regions, with special focus on the reaction of biota to climate change.
The main tools of the postdoc project will be the investigation of marine sediment cores using a combination of preferably marine palynology, but also micropaleontology (diatoms, foraminifers, or ostracods), sedimentology, and geochemistry (XRF elemental data, stable isotopes, CaCO3, TOC, organic biomarkers) in a multi-proxy study. The postdoc will also experiment with the potential use of copepod remains in sediment samples.
Within the framework of the ECOTIP project, there is considerable freedom for the postdoctoral researcher to develop the project together with the hosts at Aarhus University.

Qualifications
The successful applicant will have a PhD in geoscience or related fields. Candidates should preferably have knowledge on Quaternary marine micropaleontology (especially marine palynology), although specialists in other techniques/proxies are also invited to apply. Experience in multi-proxy studies, paleoceanography and/or numerical/statistical data treatment will be considered favourably. Excellent oral and written English skills are a requirement.

Place of Employment and Place of Work:
The place of employment is Aarhus University, and the place of work is the Department of Geoscience, Aarhus University, Høegh-Guldbergs Gade 2, DK-8000 Aarhus C, Denmark: geo.au.dk/paleo
