The Department of Geoscience in the Faculty of Science at the University of Calgary is accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar in Thermochronology.
We invite applications for an immediate postdoctoral position to conduct research in the Thermo- and Geochronology laboratory of the Department of Geoscience. The successful candidate will join a collaborative team including an experienced professor, a research scientist, and several graduate and undergraduate students that conduct research projects including methodological development of fission track, laser ablation U-Th/He and U-Pb analysis, as well as the application of these methods to active mountain belts and associated sedimentary basins.
