We are hiring!

We are hiring! The TIMEleSS project is looking for a post-doctoral fellow. The position is available for 1 year and extendable. The position is attached to the Earth and Planetary Materials group the Unité Matériaux et Transformations, at the Université de Lille, France, with strong collaborations with the Institute for Geophysics at the University of Münster. The candidate should have a strong background in deep Earth seismology and/or wave propagation in complex media and/or mineral physics and will be in charge of connecting mineral physics knowledge of phase transformations and microstructures in the Earth’s mantle to potential observations of seismic reflections and scattering. Details on the position, conditions, and requirements can be found in the following document.

Opening for two PhD positions!

The TIMEleSS project is looking for 2 PhD student. Both students will investigate the link between microstructures, phase transitions and seismic structures in the Earth’s deep mantle using a combination of advanced diffraction methods at synchrotron sources and in-house experimental facilities. Both positions should start on March 1st, 2018, or whenever the position are filled. The first position will be based at the Institute for Mineralogy of the University of Münster (Germany) under the supervision of  Prof. Dr. Carmen Sanchez-Valle and will focus on materials relevant for deep subducted slabs. The second position will be based at the Unité Matériaux et Transformations of the University of Lille (France) under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Sébastien Merkel and will focus on[…]
