Applications are invited for a PhD candidate to contribute to the EU-funded project ‘EPIC’ dedicated to understanding the nature of the Ediacaran paleomagnetic field through a combination of fieldwork, paleomagnetic and geochronological analysis, and plate tectonic modelling.
The Ediacaran Period (~635-540 million years ago) was a particularly dynamic interval in Earth’s history, marked by dramatic changes in climate, global geochemical cycles and the biosphere. Coeval records of the Earth’s magnetic field exhibit rapid variations that suggest dramatic changes may have been occurring in Earth’s lithosphere, mantle or core then too, but the specific nature of the Ediacaran paleomagnetic signals remains unknown. Establishing their origins is important, both for understanding global paleogeography at this critical time, and for understanding the evolution of Earth’s geomagnetic field and the geodynamo that powers it.
We seek a motivated PhD candidate who will work together with the international EPIC team to conduct fieldwork and experimental analyses of Ediacaran rock samples to unravel the nature of their complex paleomagnetic records. The analytical work will involve a variety of paleomagnetic, rock-magnetic and paleointensity experiments and the candidate will also be invited to conduct advanced rock-magnetic and/or geochronological analyses abroad in collaboration with EPIC project partners.
