Three-year post doctoral position open

A three-year post-doctoral position is hereby announced. The successful candidate will carry out near-surface geophysical and geological investigations to unravel the regional differences in vertical movements of the Danish area during the last ~7000 years.

The research will be carried out under the project: “Differential Vertical Movements in the Danish Area: Geophysical and Geological Interpretation of Sealevel Curves for the last 7000 Years”, which is financed by the Danish Natural Science Research Council and will be launched by the beginning of 2011. The post doctoral researcher will carry out integrated ground-penetrating radar and sedimentological interpretation of coastal deposits as well as laboratory analysis of core material taken from nearby lakes to establish relative sea-level curves for different locations in Denmark. Maps of differential vertical movements will be established based on comparison of the different sea-level curves. Sigue leyendo
