Postdoctoral Fellow in Organic carbon accumulation rates in the Mississippi Delta
Tulane University, Louisiana, United States
Start reviewing process: 15 October 2021

The incumbent postdoctoral fellow will be a member of the Quaternary Research Group at Tulane that focuses on the evolution of coastal and deltaic environments within the context of sea-level rise, subsidence, sediment supply, and other human impacts. Responsibilities will include the analysis of organic carbon accumulation rates in deltaic strata and their role in the global carbon cycle, based on measurements from late Holocene sediment cores (both archival and to be collected) along with geochronological analyses (notably radiocarbon dating). The position is funded for 18 months. There will be opportunities for mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students.

Candidates must have a recent PhD degree in the geosciences or a related field. A background in geochemistry and/or coastal geoscience is a plus but not a requirement. Applications should be submitted to and should include a cover letter, CV, statement of research interests, and names and contact information of three referees. Review of applications will start on October 15, 2021; later applicants will receive consideration as long as the position remains unfilled. Further information can be obtained from Prof. Torbjörn Törnqvist (
