The tasks of the job holder are based on participation in the research project mentioned above. This includes the following activities:
- Planning and independent execution of sampling drill cores at the Core Repository of the Florida Geological Survey in Tallahassee
- Petrographic description of rock samples
- Planning and execution of chemical, isotopic and mineralogical analyses: Sequential chemical extractions, ICP-MS, MC-ICP-MS, XAFS, XANES
- Planning and execution of laboratory tests
- Participation in the supervision of students and courses.
- A completed doctorate in the field of geosciences or mineralogy with a focus on (isotope) geochemistry and carbonate petrology
- Experience in sampling and description of drill cores
- Experience in geochemical analysis of rocks and waters
- Experience in rock microscopy of carbonates
- Willingness to take samples in Florida and possibly worldwide
- Willingness for stays abroad to carry out analyses
