Se ha ofertado un puesto de trabajo en la Universidad de Lisboa para desarrollar un proyecto de micropaleontología relacionado con el cambio climático del Cuaternario. Os adjuntamos la información por si alguno si anima. Lisboa es una ciudad muy linda
The Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon through its Geology Centre (CeGUL) is making available a 5 year PhD research position for a scientist to deal with sediment palynological studies directed towards climatic reconstruction of shallow marine/transitional
systems. Experience in pollen morphology, in present and past Mediterranean plant ecosystems, and in transfer functions and their applications to reconstruct climatic parameters is required. CeGUL is developing research on the applications of diatoms, ostracods, foraminifera, nannoplankton and molluscs as proxies to support reconstruction of Quaternary climatic, ecological and environmental changes, in order to develop coastal evolution models. On these bases, the CeGUL is making available a five year Ph.D. research position for a scientist committed to deal with sediment palynological studies directed towards climatic reconstruction of specific environments, particularly shallow marine and transitional systems. This researcher should have a good knowledge in pollen morphology and be experienced both in present and past (Late Quaternary) Mediterranean plant ecosystems. A solid background in transfer functions and their applications to reconstruct climatic parameters is an important selective criterion.
A proven record of the capacity to publish scientific papers in high quality international journals is required. Candidates should be fluent in English, and a good knowledge of Portuguese would be desirable. The successful candidate will be physically located in the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. He/she will become involved in ongoing projects in the CeGUL Unit and in training of young researchers, but will also be expected to design new projects and pursue funds for research.
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Geological Sciences or closely related field, and should submit their curriculum vitae, a letter of motivation, up to five selected reprints, and names and addresses of three individuals who can be contacted for letters of reference. Please refer to job reference in all application materials. Candidates must have a minimum of 3 years postdoctoral research experience. 5-year position, base salary: 43k€ (annual) Application deadline: 30 August 2007
