PhD or Postdoc position on H2 Clumped Isotopes


We have set up for the first time worldwide a measurement method for H2 clumped isotopes at natural isotopic composition, using the high-resolution mass spectrometer MAT-253 Ultra. We are now looking for an outstanding candidate for further developing this work and applying these measurements to H2 from natural samples. This is a challenging but very rewarding project, and integrates elements of physics, chemistry, geology and (micro)biology.


The ideal candidate will have a good understanding of physical phenomena, good mathematical and logical thinking, and good experimental skills. Experience with trace gas or isotope measurements is useful but not strictly necessary. More important are personal qualities like an open mind, enthusiasm, curiosity, creative thinking, ability to cooperate, and motivation.
