Postdoc position at University of Bergen, Norway

Postdoctoral fellow (2.5 years) in coupled source-to-sink and geodynamic modelling of extensional basins: Gulf of Corinth, Greece

Department of Earth Science, University of Bergen, Norway

The Department of Earth Science has a vacancy for a postdoctoral fellow (2.5 years) integrating source-to-sink and geodynamic studies to Quaternary rift basins, Gulf of Corinth. The successful candidate will be responsible for integrating offshore seismic, tectonic geomorphology and outcrop (structure and sedimentary) data and for applying coupled geodynamic-landscape evolution modelling to understand the tectonic, landscape and sedimentary evolution of the Corinth Rift. The aim of the project is 1) to develop understanding of erosion, sediment transfer and deposition, from source to sink, in the Corinth Rift, and 2) to investigate structural development of the rift and the potential role of coupling of tectonics and surface processes in the rifts evolution. The project will involve collaboration with University of Southampton and CRPG, Nancy, France.

This sub-project is part of a larger Earth System Modelling (ESM) project, which has as a main goal to study links and feedbacks between geodynamics, source to sink studies, and palaeoclimate modelling. The ESM project involves in total 12 post-doctoral fellows and senior researchers at the Department of Earth Science and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research and is funded by Statoil ASA.

Starting salary on grade 57 (code 1352/LR 24.1) in the Civil Service pay grade table, currently NOK 473,400 gross p.a., following ordinary meriting regulations (wage range 57- 65). In the case of particularly highly qualified applicants a higher salary may be considered.

Applicants must have achieved a PhD degree in Earth Science that is relevant to the postdoctoral research position, or have presented the dissertation for assessment by the closing date for applications. It is a prerequisite that the dissertation has been approved before appointment is granted. Letters of reference from three geoscientists who know the candidate and his/her work must be provided.

Applicants should submit a brief (1 page) statement of their research experience and intended research goals within the scope of this post doc project. This and other application materials should demonstrate that the candidate possesses good skills in tectonic geomorphology and/or sedimentology and/or structural geology with experience in geological fieldwork. Experience of tectonic and/or surface process modelling is an advantage. Applicants are expected to have excellent oral and written English communication skills.

Closing date for applications: 15 September 2013. Application information and further details can be found at: http://www.jobbnorge.no/job.aspx?jobid=95628
