Are you an ambitious researcher with skills in Quaternary palynology, 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 leading research-intensive Universities?

We are seeking a Research Fellow with experience in Quaternary Palynology who will play a pivotal role in developing palaeoenvironmental reconstructions of the Southern North Sea during the Last Interglacial, from cores collected offshore in summer 2020. You will work alongside project partners to develop age-depth models from the collected cores and establish a chronological framework for the reconstructed Last Interglacial landscapes. With the project team, you will develop models of the rate and magnitude of Last Interglacial sea-level change, and the associated environmental response.

This post is part of 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 Palaeo@Leeds.

To explore the post further or for any queries you may have, please contact:

Dr Natasha Barlow , Associate Professor in Quaternary Environmental Change
