Dear all,

A 3-year PhD scholarship is available in the fields of paleoenvironmental reconstructions and greenhouse gas characterization in permafrost aquatic systems of Central Yakutia (Siberia). The project will be conducted at Geosciences Paris Sud (GEOPS), in close collaboration with the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l’Environnement (LSCE), both members of U. Paris Saclay, France. There will also be external interactions with researchers from Germany (Alfred Wegener Institute) and Canada (U. Montréal and INRS-ETE).

The project will be targeted at 3 main research axes:
- Age, sources and fluxes of greenhouse gases in lakes (isotope geochemistry)
- Past and present permafrost dynamics in the landscape (geocryology, geochemistry)
- Lake inception and development through time (paleolimnology)

The selected candidate will be actively involved in fieldwork sampling, to be conducted during at least two ice-free seasons near Yakutsk (Siberia). Laboratory work will be conducted at GEOPS and LSCE. The thesis will be supervised by Frédéric Bouchard and François Costard from GEOPS, and Christine Hatté from LSCE. Funding is available through the ‘Make Our Planet Great Again’ international program launched by the French President.

Official start of the project: October 2018.

Candidate profile/skills:
- Background in geology, geochemistry, or a related discipline in Earth sciences
- Experience in fieldwork, working in remote locations, good physical shape
- Oral and written skills in English
- Experience in statistical analysis and R (or willing to learn it)
- Efficiency in GIS and/or remote sensing an asset
- Motivation, curiosity, self-reliance
