AWI focuses on polar and marine research in a variety of disciplines such as biology, oceanography, geology and geophysics thus allowing multidisciplinary approaches to scientific goals. The department of Glaciology invites applications for a position as PostDoc, paleo-climate proxies in ice cores Tasks: The position encompasses the implementation of instruments, the measurement and analysis of paleo-proxy- data from snow, firn and ice cores. It is embedded in the framework of topic 8 “Abrupt climate change from proxy-data” of the Helmholtz Regional Climate Initiative (REKLIM: www.reklim.de) and therefore offers the great possibility for working in an interdisciplinary environment. You will be involved in the adaption of our Continuous Flow Analysis (CFA) device to enable high-resolution measurements of ions and stable water isotopes. You will carry out measurements on firn and shallow ice cores from Northern Greenland. The analysis will be in close collaboration with (paleo) - climate modellers as well as with REKLIM partners specialised in other climate archives. Your analysis will provide an excellent basis to understand Arctic climate variability over the last millennium and how this variability is reflected in the accumulation and deposition patterns in firn and ice cores. We will establish an independent dating and access the seasonality of snow accumulation with respect to the interpretation of paleo-proxies from ice cores. Requirements: We are looking for candidates who have a technical record to take care of the adaption of the CFA device, the motivation to measure and analyse the firn and ice core data and experience in paleo proxy analysis. We expect: • A PhD in glaciology, physics, geology, chemistry, meteorology, or closely related environmental science disciplines and ideally a strong background in paleo-climate • Experience with methodological development, LabView programming and time series analysis • The ability to present the results at international conferences and to publish in peer-reviewed journals • Proficiency in the English language in written and oral form is mandatory The contract will be limited for 3 years. Payment will be in accordance with a civil service position (TVöD Bund) based on qualifications and assigned tasks. The place of employment will be Bremerhaven. For further information please contact Dr. Maria Hörhold (<Maria.Hoerhold@awi.de>). We offer you a multi-disciplinary, international, and fascinating professional environment with flexible working hours, state-of-the-art research equipment, and a first-rate infrastructure. AWI aims to increase the number of women in the scientific staff. Female candidates are therefore especially asked to apply. Disabled applicants will be given preference when equal qualifications are present. The AWI fosters the compatibility of work and family through various means. Because of our engagement in the area of work-life compatibility we have been awarded the certificate “Career and Family”. Applications including CV, degree certificates, a statement of research interests and names and addresses of two referees should be submitted by April 15th , 2016 referencing code 59/G/Kli to: Alfred-Wegener-Institut für Polar- und Meeresforschung, Personalabteilung (human resources), Postfach 12 01 61, 27515 Bremerhaven / Germany(or by e-mail (all documents merged into one PDF file) to: <email@example.com>.
