Dear colleagues,

Please see the announcement below for a MSc internship to be based at 
CEREGE in Aix en Provence.

Reconstitution of the fluctuations of the Arsine Glacier (Massif des 
Ecrins, France)
since the Late Glacial using cosmogenic nuclide dating

This MSc internship at CEREGE (Aix en Provence) aims to reconstruct a 
chronology of the glacial fluctuations of the Arsine Glacier (Ecrins 
Massif, French Alps) since the Late Glacial by dating the moraines with 
cosmogenic beryllium-10 nuclide. The moraines show an advanced position 
of the glacier due to the colder periods, and their age correspond to 
the retreat of the glacier to a warming. Establish chronologies of 
moraines thus allows to better understand the evolutions of the past 
climate. The results obtained at the Arsine Glacier will be compared 
with data from other sites in the Ecrins Massif and in the Alps to 
analyze the related paleoclimatic mechanisms. There are currently few 
paleoclimatic records of this type in the French Alps. The results of 
this internship could contribute significantly to the knowledge of the 
terrestrial palaeoclimate in Central Europe.

Research experience is desirable, and applicants must have strong 
quantitative and writing skills. Interested applicants should send a CV 
and a brief summary of relevant field and/or laboratory experience.

The internship will start mid-January 2018, and the application Deadline 
is 15 December 201.
