Lecturer in Earth Sciences - St. Andrews

19 Sep 2015
Dear all, 
on behalf of Andrea Burke:
The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of St Andrews wishes to appoint a Lecturer/Reader in Earth Sciences, starting by 1 August 2016. The area of expertise is open but we are particularly interested to augment research in stable isotope geochemistry. We seek a candidate who would utilise and help long-term development of our new gas source IR-MS facility, featuring two Thermo MAT 253 mass spectrometers, with applications including, but not limited to, quadruple S, triple O, Se, and clumped isotope analyses.  The facility benefits from custom-made preparation lines for SF6 extraction and is supported by two class-100 clean labs. The Department runs two BSc Honours programmes in Geology and Environmental Earth Sciences and an integrated Masters (MGeol) course in Earth Science, and is commencing a taught MSc. The position is aimed at the Lecturer level but we will consider appointment at the Reader level for outstanding candidates.

Closing Date:  31 October 2015
