The recently funded Millennium Nucleus in “Paleoclimate of the Southern
Hemisphere” invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship
in paleoclimate and paleoenvironments. The main goal of this 3-year
grant is to understand the evolution of the coupled atmosphere, ocean,
cryosphere and biosphere during and since the Last Glacial Maximum. More
specifically our study areas include western Patagonia and the adjacent
Pacific Ocean. We are an interdisciplinary research group that covers
the disciplines of atmospheric sciences, Earth System modeling,
paleoceanography, paleoecology and glacial geology.

Successful candidates must have a PhD and research experience in one or
more of the following fields: Quaternary paleoclimate, sedimentology,
glacial stratigraphy and geomorphology, isotope geochemistry,
paleoecology. Field work experience in remote and desolate regions is
highly desirable, as well as willingness and ability to conduct
independent research while being a team player. You will join an active
research group that addresses the study of paleoclimate combining
empirical and modelling approaches, with ample opportunities for
fieldwork in Patagonia.

Salary is assigned according to CONICYT standards, equivalent to ca.
32,000 USD per year, which corresponds roughly to 2.5 times the Chilean
per capita average income.

Interested applicants should send their CV and a brief research proposal
(up to 2 pages) not later than November 15^th 2014 to Dr. Patricio
Moreno (pimoreno@uchile.cl <mailto:pimoreno@uchile.cl>) or Maisa Rojas
(maisa@dgf.uchile.cl <mailto:maisa@dgf.uchile.cl>_)_. The decision will
be communicated as soon as a candidate has been chosen. The selected
candidate is expected to start during January 2015. For more information
don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Rojas or Dr. Moreno.
