W3-Professor for Mineralogy

The Institute of Geosciences at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, Germany, invites applications for a tenured Full Professorship (W3) in the Faculty of Chemistry and Geosciences.

The Institute of Geosciences comprises the fields of geology, geophysics and mineralogy and emphasizes a close cooperation between the various fields of Earth Sciences (sedimentology, structural geology, applied geology, hydrogeology, mineralogy, geochemistry, geophysics, and applied geophysics) in teaching and research. The institute is well equipped with an array of mineralogical (TEM, DEGAS, XRF, XRD, EMP, AFM) and hydrogeochemical (LA-ICP-MS, ICP-OES, GC-MS) facilities.

Postdoctoral position in Mineral Physics

The Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences at the California Institute of Technology invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate in the mineral physics group.

Applicants with an interest in the material properties of Earth and planetary phases as they pertain to problems in mineral physics, geophysics, and geochemistry are encouraged to apply. Experience in high-pressure experimental techniques, x-ray synchrotron-based research, spectroscopy, and diffraction are desirable.

The position will involve participating in establishing the optical spectroscopy and laser-heating laboratory for in-house diamond-anvil studies under extreme pressures and temperatures. Research opportunities include, but are not limited to, topics related to the composition of Earth and other planetary interiors through optical and x-ray synchrotron-based experiments under extreme conditions. A recent Ph.D. in geology or a related discipline is required.

Opportunities for collaboration within the division include: seismology, petrology, geochemistry, geodynamics, and planetary geology.
