ERC Consolidator Grant Positions

As part of the European Research Council funded Consolidator Grant "EARTHSEQUENCING", the Center for Marine Environmental Sciences, MARUM, is searching to supplement its current EARTHSEQUENCING team with a further 3 motivated researchers: 1 PhD position (A) and 1 Postdoc position (B) in the area of Earth System Modelling, and 1 PhD position at the intersection of physics/astronomy/ Earth sciences (C), starting from August 2015 or as soon as possible thereafter. We are searching for enthusiastic and dynamic researchers. The Project "EARTHSEQUENCING" is being carried out in the research group "Palaeoceanography" of Prof. Heiko Pälike at the University of Bremen. One major challenge to be addressed by EARTHSEQUENCING is to overcome fundamental obstacles to generate a first highresolution and continuous fully integrated record of geological events, ages and durations (a 'sequence of Earth history') for the past 66 million years, anchored to the present, to extract properties of Earth's and solar system orbital motion, and then to apply this time scale to solve first order questions about Earth's climate system and Earth System sensitivity.

The PhD and PostDoc projects (A, B) are concerned with deciphering the climatic mechanisms that translate astronomical forcing to sedimentary archives and will employ an Earth System Modelling approach (cGENIE or similar). The PhD position (C) is tasked with extracting astronomical and geophysical parameters from geological time series.

We are searching highly motivated and skilled candidates with the following requirements:

 completed academic degree, preferentially in Earth Sciences, Geoscience, Palaeoclimate, Physics, Astronomy or Computer Science, as appropriate for the relevant positions advertised
 very strong quantitative background, including experience and interest in time series analysis methods and computer modelling (Positions A & B)
 Experience in marine science and/or geochemical laboratory methods (PhD Position C)
 Applicants should have excellent English language skills and enjoy working in an international and interdisciplinary team.
 A track record and future expectation of publishing in international peer reviewed journals
The positions are available under the condition of job release and are initially limited to a term of 3 years (PhD positions) and in any case until the end of the project on 31.3.2019 (post-doc position). Positions are funded by the European Research Council (ERC). Salary and benefits are commensurate with the federal German employee scale EG 13 TV-L (PostDoc: 100%, PhD: 66.6 %).

Applications should include a CV, a list of publications, a statement describing research interests, the applicant's research and technical background as they relate to the position and contact information for three referees.

More information on research and technology at the MARUM is available at

As the University of Bremen intends to increase the proportion of female employees in science, women are particularly encouraged to apply. In case of equal personal aptitudes and qualification, priority will be given to disabled persons. The University of Bremen expressly invites persons with migration background to apply.

For informal enquiries please contact Prof. Heiko Pälike, Tel. +49 421 218 65980 or Initial deadline for the application is July 31, 2015. Positions will remain open until filled. Applications should be with the reference numbers (A) A119/15, (B) A120/15, and (C) A121/15 by mail to
