This person will train students and lab visitors, perform fee-for-service analyses, maintain daily lab operations, contribute to method development, and assist with community outreach activities. The Quaternary Geochronology Group focuses on novel applications of luminescence measurements, including thermochronology and rock surface dating techniques.

The position has guaranteed funding for five years with an expected 12-month salary of $74,000 USD with a 4% COLA plus fringe benefits. The ideal candidate will have a M.S. or Ph.D. in geosciences or a related field. Expected start date of September 1, 2024. Full details can be found here.

3-year Postdoc Position as Software Research Engineer

Software Research Engineer

The University of Heidelberg is delighted to announce a three-year (36 months) position for a Software Research Engineer working in the project REPLAY (Reproducible Luminescence Data Analysis).

The DFG-funded project is a joint initiative of the universities in Giessen and Heidelberg to make luminescence data analysis more transparent, accessible, findable, and reproducible. While skills in software development with R and/or Python are obligatory for apparent reasons, we do not expect any prior knowledge of luminescence dating.

The application deadline is 2024-04-30, and the successful candidate (m/f/d) will ideally start May/June 2024. In case of questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Sebastian Kreutzer.
