Are you an ambitious researcher with skills in reflection seismic mapping, and looking for your next challenge?

Do you want to be part of a large, cutting-edge geoscience research programme?

Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leadingresearch intensive Universities?


We are seeking a Research Fellow who will play a pivotal role in 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, you will use these data to plan phases of offshore core collection, with opportunities to join data collection on vessels within the North Sea (with appropriate training).

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. This post is the first of several appointments in a €2 million European Starting Grant project (RISeR), which aims to advance our understanding of the magnitude, rates and drivers of sea-level change during the Last Interglacial, to inform both global and regional sea-level projections beyond 2100. You will work closely with Dr Natasha Barlow, other research fellows, PhD students and benefit from a wider research network including Leeds Quaternary, the Stratigraphy Group and Applied Geophysics Group. You will have a PhD (or close to completion) in Geoscience, or related fields, with a proven background in seismic mapping. You will also have the ability to conduct independent research and a developing track record of publications in international journals. In addition you will have excellent communication, planning and team working skills.
