Department of Geological Sciences at Stockholm University is inviting applications for postdoctoral position on Reconstructing Arctic Ocean Sea Ice. Applicants must have a PhD or other degree in the field of marine geology, geophysics, oceanography or other relevant field of science. Duration of scholarship is full time for a maximum of two years. Email your application by January 10, 2014.. SWERUS-C3 (Swedish–Russian–US Arctic Ocean Investigation of Climate-Cryosphere-Carbon Interactions, swerus-c3.geo.su.se/) is a multi-disciplinary program aimed to investigate the linkages between climate, cryosphere and carbon release from the sediment. This postdoctoral project aims to address a fundamental scientific question within the SWERUS-C3 program: how has the Arctic Ocean sea ice varied over centennial to millenial time scales? This research question is possible to approach by studying sea ice proxies in sediment cores. We invite applicants interested in applying one of or a combination of, the following proxies to reconstruct Arctic Ocean sea ice from sediment cores: 1. biomarkers (IP25 etc), 2. microfossils and 3. sediment composition, physical properties and/or provenance. Stockholm University strives to be a workplace which is free from discrimination and offers equal opportunities to everyone..
