The Waikato Environmental Geochemistry (WEG) group is looking for a
researcher to join us on a 2-year Research Fellowship. The fellowship links
with several externally funded projects and has the broad remit of ‘trace
elements in speleothems’. A strong background in aquatic chemistry,
mineralogy and stable isotopes would be preferable. It is expected the
researcher will complete some cave analogue experiments using UoW’s new
controlled atmosphere enclosure (GeoMIC) as well as trace element and
isotope analyses of speleothems.

We are looking for a highly motivated self-starter that can make the most of
this opportunity, in particular through access to UoW's new LA-ICP-MS
facility (ASI RESOlution laser, Agilent 8900 QQQ). The researcher will
benefit from working in a diverse and welcoming group and have the option to
conduct fieldwork in New Zealand and the Pacific islands.
