Current vacancies

Research Fellow in Marine Geophysical Mapping at the University of Leeds (Deadline: 9th December 2018)


As part of a European Starting Grant project (RISeR), which aims to advance understanding of the magnitude, rates and drivers of sea-level change during the Last Interglacial, this position will involve mapping the late Quaternary sediments of the Southern North Sea, identifying key horizons that mark the flooding of the basin during the Last Interglacial (~125,000 years ago), and the subsequent depositional patterns. Alongside project partners, the successful applicant will use these data to plan phases of offshore core collection, with opportunities to join data collection on vessels within the North Sea.Utilising the reflection seismic and borehole data, you will produce integrated models of coastal response and sediment mobility in the region, under relative sea-level changes during the Last Interglacial.
