A postdoctoral position is available in the broad area of large igneous provinces and continental rifting. The position is supported by a NSF-ANT grant awarded to Prof. Jill VanTongeren to study the emplacement and crystallization history of the Dufek Intrusion - a large layered mafic intrusion that formed as part of the Ferrar large igneous province of Antarctica during the rifting of Gondwana at approximately 182 Ma.
Ideal candidates will have successfully obtained their PhD in either igneous petrology, geochronology, or tectonics, and be interested in a combination of sample-based lab work as well as computational modeling. The postdoc is grant-supported for 18 months, with the possibility of extension subject to availability of funds and performance. The anticipated start date is Spring 2022.
The Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences at Tufts University is located in the greater Boston region providing ample opportunity for collaboration and connection with other nearby universities. Tufts University is an equal opportunity employer - women and individuals from under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply.
Review of applications will begin Dec. 15, 2021 and continue until the position is filled. Interested candidates should send a detailed CV, a brief 2-3 page statement of research accomplishments and future research interests, and a list of 3 references to: firstname.lastname@example.org
