Dear colleagues,

The Laboratory of Geology at Lyon (University Lyon1 & ENS de Lyon, France) invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships in experimental petrology and modeling.

(I) Research focuses on experimental hydrothermal alteration of ultramafic minerals under conditions relevant to natural systems with emphasis on CO2 conversion and carbon speciation during reactions. Our institution has facilities for high-pressure/high-temperature fluid-rock experiments (large volume autoclaves with fluid sampling, low-pressure diamond-anvil cells) and for extensive fluid and rock characterization (GC-MS, ICP-MS, Raman spectroscopy). Complementary techniques are available on the campus (e.g. X-Ray Diffraction, electron microscopy). Synchrotron-based experiments or analyses are also considered. The successful applicant will work in close collaboration with an international group of scientists of the Deep Carbon Observatory science network (http://deepcarbon.net/).
The candidate should hold a PhD in Earth Sciences, or Chemistry. An experience or a strong affinity for laboratory experimental work and analytical techniques is mandatory. Experience in thermodynamic modeling of fluid-rock reactions and/or of organic chemistry will be appreciated.

(II) Research focuses on further developing global modeling of hydrogen and methane production from the hydrothermal alteration of the oceanic lithosphere through geological time. The interactive model shall be articulated with high-resolution plate motion models within the GPlates infrastructure and tested against the data recently acquired by the community. The successful applicant will indeed work in close collaboration with an international group of scientists of the Deep Carbon Observatory science network (http://deepcarbon.net/) and organise workshops.
The candidate should hold a PhD in Earth Sciences and should have experience with data analysis using one or more programming languages like Python. Networking experience with the Deep Carbon Observatory science network and organizational skills wil​l be appreciated.

The successful candidates are expected to work in both independent and collaborative group environments and to be self-motivated to accomplish the research goals. The initial appointment will be for a period of one year and is likely to be extended. The net salary 28000-30000 €/year depending on experience includes health insurance and social benefits.

To apply, please submit a single PDF document to Isabelle Daniel (isabelle.daniel at univ-lyon1.fr<mailto:isabelle.daniel at univ-lyon1.fr>) incorporating the following: a cover letter, contact information for two references, curriculum vitae with a publication list, and a statement of past research accomplishments and future research goals (two pages or less).

 Complete applications will be reviewed beginning november 15th, 2017 and then every two weeks until the position is filled.

The Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Colorado at Boulder will have an opening next year for a Research Associate position to manage our electron microprobe laboratory, which houses a new JEOL 8230. There is no official ad to share yet but it will be coming very soon. However, I will be at the GSA meeting in Seattle next week if anyone interested would like to talk more about this position. Please send me an email separately to Kevin.Mahan at colorado.edu<mailto:Kevin.Mahan at colorado.edu>to arrange something. Otherwise, please look for the ad coming soon!
