MSc Student, paleoclimate studies - Haifa, Israel

Applications are invited for an MSc position to participate in a research project at the Department of Marine Geosciences, University of Haifa, for the aim of studying "High latitude climate and environmental reconstruction: an Alaskan perspective".

Description

This research project aims to reconstruct Holocene environmental and climatic changes utilizing continuous lacustrine records from the Bering Land Bridge (west Alaska).

For this purpose, a set of cutting-edge advanced technologies and sedimentological analytical methods will be used on continuous and well-dated lake cores records. Emphasis will be given to sea level reconstruction since deglaciation in light of post-glacial isostatic rebound. Standard sedimentological and geochemical methodologies will be used, including: carbon content, granulometry and mineralogy, couple with modeling techniques.

Requirements

A BSc degree in geosciences (or equivalent) is required at the start of the project (1 November 2018, or soon thereafter). Successful candidates are expected to show broad earth-science interests, ability to conduct a multi-approach project and should have excellent English communication and writing skills.

Scholarship

A scholarship is available and at the disposal of the applicant.
