Postdoctoral Scholar in Stable-Isotope Geochemistry

The isotope geochemistry group at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) invites applications for a postdoctoral research scientist to make use of state-of-the-art analytical and experimental facilities at LBNL and the Department of Earth and Planetary Science at the University of California, Berkeley to study the processes that control the isotopic composition of methane, including isotopologues with multiple rare isotopes (i.e. ‘clumped’ isotopes), in order to improve our understanding of the conditions under which methane forms, migrates, and is stored in the Earth’s surface. This work will be conducted with Prof. Daniel Stolper and will involve use of high-temperature and pressure equipment at LBNL and a high-resolution isotope-ratio mass spectrometer housed on UC Berkeley’s campus in the Department of Earth and Planetary Science. Expertise in isotope geochemistry and/or high pressure/temperature equipment is desirable. This position will provide opportunities to interact with and engage both UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory scientists. The position has funding for two years with the potential for a third year. Please apply by 10/31/17 for full consideration. More information on the position can be found at: http://50.73.55.13/counter.php?id=108713.
