Postdoctoral Researcher

Updated: about 2 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 05 Apr 2021

The research group “Supra Terra” (Department de Geologia, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain; https://grupsderecerca.uab.cat/supraterra ) is looking for a postdoctoral researcher interested in applying for the Beatriu de Pinós BP2020 call to carry out a 3-year research project.

The research carried out by the group is characterised by a multidisciplinary approach, that lies in the integration of tectonic, geochemical and geophysical studies with studies related to the external processes (erosion, sinorogenic sedimentation), in order to comprehend the formation of mountain belts, the evolution of relief and the sediment dispersal patterns in sedimentary basins. The group's scientific activity integrates the high and low temperature geochronology, which provides an essential quantitative frame so as to quantify the deep earth and surface processes. The group's studies are applied to real natural examples such as the Pyrenees, the Atlas mountains in the Maghreb, the Andes or the ancient Variscan Belt. The research includes from essential scientific aspects analysed by a wide range of methods to the practical application of knowledge in hydrocarbon reservoir characterisation or the study of induced seismicity.

To be eligible, the candidate must:

  • Hold a doctoral degree (PhD obtained between 1st January 2013 and 31th December 2018)

  • At least 2 years of postdoctoral experience outside Spain

  • Have not worked or lived in Spain for more than 12 months in the last 3 years before the deadline.
