PH.D. POSITION IN METAMORPHIC PETROLOGY - STABLE ISOTOPE GEOCHEMISTRY
AT THE INSTITUTE OF MINERALOGY-CRYSTALLOGRAPHY AND PETROLOGY,
KARL-FRANZENS-UNIVERSITY GRAZ, AUSTRIA
A three years Ph.D. fellowship is available to work on the project ``Flow and transport in contact aureoles'' funded by the Austrian Science Foundation.
The main goal of the project will be to better understand the factors that control fluid flow and material transport during contact metamorphism.
The approach will be to investigate the petrologic and stable isotope systematics of selected contact aureoles in southern Norway and to use phase petrological tools as well as transport theory to analyze the observational data.
The project will involve mapping and sampling in the Oslo Graben for at least two field seasons.
Analytical work will include standard petrographical methods and extensive stable isotope analysis of carbonates and silicates.
The candidate will work at the Institute of Mineralogy-Crystallography and Petrology at Karl-Franzens-University Graz.
Graz is an Austrian University town with 26.000 inhabitants (40.000 students).
Candidates with background in petrology, geology, chemistry or physics are encouraged to apply.
An MS degree or Diploma is necessary.
Experience with standard petrographical analytical methods and/or stable isotope techniques are desirable but not mandatory.
Appointment will be for 24 + 12 months.
The position should be preferentially filled by August 1, 1998.
The monthly salary (after tax) will be about 14.000 Ats (1.100 US$).
Travel and field expenses will be covered separately.
Applications should contain: (1) a cover letter with a description of research interests, (2) a curriculum vitae with a list of publications, (3) reprints/preprints of publications, (4) the names and addresses of three references.
Applications should be sent by May 15, 1998 to:
