Marine geochemist with a focus on the application of isotope and trace element techniques

IFM-GEOMAR belongs to the leading research institutions in isotope and trace element analysis. New methodological developments in multi collector-ICP mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS) coupled to laser ablation system as well as Thermal Ionisation Mass-spectrometry (TIMS) and their applications are one of the most important components of the analytical expertise of the institute. We are looking for a scientist who will apply these analytical methods not only to Marine Geochemistry but also to Marine Biology and other fields which are scientific topics of the GEOMAR research centre. In addition, taking over responsibility for running the instruments and managing its maintenance on a daily base will also be part of the job. Hence, we are looking for an experienced trace element and isotope geochemist having an academic background and technical, as well as scientific experience in marine isotope and trace element geochemistry and if possible in laser ablation technique.

This is an offer for a full-time permanent position, which can be split.

The salary depends on qualification and could be up to the class E13 of the German salary scale for public employees (TVöD).

IFM-GEOMAR is an equal opportunity employer and encourages female scientists and scientists with disabilities to apply.
