Ph.D. position in sulfur biogeochemistry

A Ph.D. graduate student position in the areas of Aquatic
Geochemistry and Biogeochemistry is available from October 1, 2013 in the
research group of Dr. Alexey Kamyshny. Our research interests are to study the
sulfur cycle in modern and ancient oxygen depleted aquatic systems with an emphasis on
the origins, fate and isotopic composition of intermediate sulfur species. The
project is strongly field-oriented. International driver license and commitment
for field work in Israel and abroad as well as good written and oral English skills
are required. An ideal candidate should have experience in sampling of
sediments and water column, as well as in chromatography and mass-spectrometry.
Experience in using a glove bag and standard wet chemistry techniques is desirable. Appointment
will require teaching assistantship (in English). Project duration is 3 to 4
years.
