Nine Early Stage Researcher positions - PhD studentship

Beitrag von mare-mundi Redaktion » 21 Nov 2013 17:06

Nine Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions (PhD studentships) available in ARAMACC

ARAMACC ("Annually Resolved Archives of Marine Climate Change"; aramacc.com)
is an EU-funded international collaboration whose scientific goal is to use
the shells of very long-lived molluscs as a record of environmental change
in the northeast Atlantic ocean over the past thousand years. The research
is based on the relatively recent discovery that the annual banding in the
shells of some marine molluscs can be used to develop long timelines, or
chronologies, of shell material using methods identical to those used in
tree-ring research. The scientific field that has developed out of this
discivery is called "sclerochronology" (or "shell-ring research"). The idea
behind ARAMACC science is to develop a network of these shell-based
chronologies in the northeast Atlantic ocean, and at the same time to
advance the applications of this kind of research in the fields of biology,
climate modelling, proxy development and environmental monitoring.


As a Marie Curie Intial Training Network, ARAMACC also focusses on training
the next generation of specialist researchers. Ten PhD students will be
funded by ARAMACC, each for a total of three years, and each will specialize
in a specific aspect of the science of sclerochronology. The ARAMACC team is
made up of scientists from Croatia, France, Germany, the Netherlands,
Norway, Portugal and the UK.

ARAMACC currently has 9 Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions available at
six centres across Europe. Each ESR position will be attached to a host
university for the award of a PhD.

The ESRs will be trained in the full range of skills associated with
shell-ring research (sclerochronology), including climate reconstruction,
climate modelling, biological and environmental drivers of shell growth, and
novel geochemical proxies.

From the point of view of the relatively new science of sclerochronology,
ARAMACC presents a great opportunity to move the field forward with an
injection of new blood and new ideas.

We are looking for ESRs to work on projects in four broad application groups:

Five projects involving shell-based chronology construction and the
reconstruction of marine variability in the northeast Atlantic region (based
at Bergen, Norway (x2), Bangor, UK (x2) and Brest, France)

One project working with applications to climate modelling applications
(based at Helmholtz-Zentrum, Geesthacht, Germany)

One project will focus on the biological and environmental drivers of shells
growth (based at NIOZ, Netherlands)

Two projects will involve the development of novel shell proxies (trace
element incorporation and shell crystal fabrics; both based at Mainz, Germany)

recruitment, please visit our website at :arrow: http://aramacc.com
