We are looking for a motivated Specialist Technician (Grade G) to join the team of a large UKRI-funded research project PETRARCH (Pinpointing Earth-System Thresholds for Anoxia with new Reconstructions of the Cretaceous Hothouse), under PI Dr. Michael Henehan. Motivated by continuing depletion of oxygen in large swathes of our oceans, the project aims to understand the thresholds in climate and ecosystems beyond which Earth can tip into periods of extreme and prolonged global marine anoxia. In practice sense, we will apply state-of-the-art geochemical tools (in particular boron isotopes) to the sedimentary record of the Cretaceous (145 – 66 million years ago) and synthesise this data in Earth system models to untangle the key factors (ecological, biogeochemical and physical) that lead to a CO2 injection becoming a profound anoxic event.
To assist and support a team that will include the PI, two post-docs and two doctoral students, we are looking for a Specialist Technician whose role will be to facilitate the generation of high-quality geochemical proxy data. The position is initially secured for two years, with potential for extension, with a preferred start date as soon as possible after the 1st of February 2023.
