Supervisors and Institutions
We are offering a position for one researcher to address the question whether aragonite forming at marine methane seeps records the molybdenum isotopic composition of seawater. The position is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) for 3 years. The candidate will be member of the working group Geology in the Earth System. The project will be carried out jointly with the Geochemistry group of the Institute of Mineralogy, University of Hannover, led by Stefan Weyer. The successful candidate will benefit from a vibrant research environment and an interdisciplinary team.
The researcher will study aragonite cement collected from methane seeps worldwide, and measure its Mo isotope composition and other inorganic geochemical parameters. She/he will obtain cutting-edge knowledge and analytical expertise on stable isotope geochemistry, as well as its application to methane-seep environments and past seawater evolution. She/he will contribute to the interpretation of results, publication and the presentation of the project’s results.
