Postdoctoral positions at ISEI

The Institute for Study of the Earth's Interior Okayama University at Misasa (ISEI) has been adopted as a 21st century COE program for the "Establishment of an International Research Centre for Solid Earth Science".

We are now accepting international applications for postdoctoral fellows in our program. Postdoctoral positions will be funded for 1-4 years each, depending on the applicant's qualifications and progress during the programme. Collaboration within our Geochemistry research group and High Pressure Experimental research group at the Institute will be encouraged.

Details regarding current research activities and facilities available at our institute can be found on Website http://www.misasa.okayama-u.ac.jp

Postodoctoral positions in Cambridge

The Mineral Physics Group of the University of Cambridge has two postdoctoral positions available in combined high-pressure high-temperature neutron scattering of minerals. The successful candidates will join Drs. Dove and Redfern to extend and apply our recent developments in high-P/T powder diffraction at ISIS, the world's most intense neutron spallation source.

The application of this technology will focus on the structural controls on the stability of minerals in the Earth' crust and mantle, within the context of the group's long-standing interest in mineral stability and phase transitions.

Postdoctoral position in Berlin

The Hahn Meitner Institute Berlin invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the synthesis and characterization of transition metal oxides.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD in physics or chemistry and will have experience in both sample fabrication and scattering techniques (neutron or X-ray). A preference will be given to candidates that have a demonstrated experience and interest in the growth of transition metal oxide single crystals using an optical floating zone mirror furnace. The successful candidate will join an international team of scientists taking part in an active scientific program in transition metal oxides and will be involved in the set-up of a sample preparation laboratory, focused on the fabrication and characterization of transition metal oxides materials.

Systematics of Natural Oxides

The English edition of the booklet Systematics of natural oxides by professor G.B. Bokij has been published by VINITI (Moscow). In the 84 pages of the publication an original classification of natural oxides is reported. The method is the same already experienced for silicates by the same author.
As all classifications, also this one has merits and... demerits; that depends on the viewpoints ! For sure, those minerals which are in the same "table" have some properties in common.

A number of copies to be sold in Western countries has been sent to Prof. Giovanni Ferraris, past chair of the SIG No.5, in order to cover part of the expenses for the English edition. The "contribution" for one copy is 10 USD, mailing included. Please contact giovanni.ferraris@unito.it if you wish to contribute.


Short Term Fellowships at Wien University

The Marie-Curie Training Site at the Institute for Mineralogy and Crystallography, University of Vienna, offers an opportunity for a 3 - 12 months fellowship in Investigations of minerals and synthetic materials by X-ray diffraction and spectroscopy to young researchers pursuing doctoral studies.
