The Department of Geoscience in the Faculty of Science at the University of Calgary is accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar in geochemistry of seawater-basalt interaction during off-axis hydrothermal circulation.
We are seeking a motivated postdoctoral scholar with excellent communication and interpersonal skills, intellectual independence, and a willingness to explore unfamiliar aspects of the geosciences. The research will focus on the geochemistry of seawater-basalt interaction during off-axis hydrothermal circulation. Results from this work will ultimately contribute to improving our understanding of the mechanisms governing CO2 storage in oceanic basalts. The successful candidate will work to characterize past water-rock interaction in samples recovered from the Cascadia Basin in the eastern Pacific Ocean and analogous samples from continentally-exposed sections of the oceanic crust on land.
The successful candidate will be working under the supervision of Dr. Benjamin Tutolo and co-supervised by Dr.’s Rachel Lauer (University of Calgary) and Laurence Coogan (University of Victoria).
This position is expected to interact with members of the “Solid Carbon” partnership and will have routine access to the University of Calgary’s extensive suite of analytical tools for characterizing seawater-basalt interaction in the oceanic sub-surface.
Please review the Postdoc Eligibility Guidelines for more information prior to applying for this position.
Evaluation of applications will begin on August 18, 2021 and continue until the position is filled.
