Experimental and Theoretical Geosciences (Bayerisches Geoinstitut, BGI)
Bayerisches Geoinstitut, University of Bayreuth, Bayreuth, Germany
Experimental Geophysics and Geochemistry
The Bayerisches Geoinstitut invites applications for postdoctoral research positions Ph.D. Studentships and visiting scientist fellowships in the fields of experimental and theoretical geosciences.
The Geoinstitut is a center for the study of processes and material properties in the Earth and planetary interiors using advanced technologies. Investigation is carried out primarily through experiments at high pressures and temperatures. Research topics include, but are not restricted to, physical and chemical properties of mantle minerals, crystal structure of minerals at high pressure, phase transitions, phase equilibria, kinetics, rheology and textural evolution during high-strain deformation, properties of silicate liquids and chemical and physical processes of planetary core formation as well as material sciences research under extreme conditions. The institute offers a unique range of state-of-the-art experimental and analytical facilities.
Postdoctoral appointments are usually made for an initial period of 30 months, with the possibility of subsequent renewal up to a total of five years. Applications for shorter periods and from senior scientists will also be considered. Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, list of publications, details of three referees and a brief statement of research interests to:
