3. Research position "Elasticity and structure evolution of carbonates at upper mantle conditions"

The Helmholtz Centre Potsdam - GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences is the national research centre for Earth sciences in Germany. With approx. 1280 employees, the GFZ is conducting interdisciplinary research on the "System Earth" and the influence of humans on the planet. As a member of the Helmholtz Association, it is part of Germany's largest science organization.

Your responsibilities:

· participate in a DFG collaborative project investigating structure-properties relations at mantle conditions

· perform experimental work both in-house and (frequently) in large scale facilities in Germany and abroad

· study the effects of pressure and temperature on the elastic stiffness tensor of carbonates to upper mantle conditions by in-situ measurements of single-crystal Brillouin scattering and x-ray diffraction

· complement Brillouin scattering measurements with thermal diffuse x-ray scattering, inelastic x-ray scattering and DFT model calculations to determine pressure-temperature-composition dependence of the elastic stiffness tensor of upper mantle carbonate

Your qualifications:

· Master's degree (or equivalent) with focus in mineralogy/crystallography or related disciplines

· very good knowledge of vibrational spectroscopy methods and x-ray diffraction

· experimental and programming skills

Starting date: 1st May 2018

Fixed term: 3 years

Working hours: part-time 66 % (currently 25.74 h/week)

Salary: The pay scale grouping will be into pay group 13 provided that all tariff related, professional and personal requirements are met (for the first 18 month TV?D-Bund (Tarifgebiet Ost) and for the second 18 months E 13 TV-GU).

Location: first 18 months in Potsdam, second 18 months in Frankfurt a. M.

You can expect a very diverse and challenging job in an international work environment that is characterized by exciting research projects. The compatibility of work and family life is of particular concern to the GFZ. Therefore, it offers the opportunity for flexible working time and workplaces. Moreover, there is a kindergarten located on the research campus.

5. Geophysics - Instructor (Term)

The Department of Earth Sciences at Carleton University invites applications from qualified candidates for a 2-year appointment in geophysics at the rank of Instructor. The candidate will be expected to teach courses, beginning September 1, 2018, in geophysics, geodynamics at the second, third and fourth year levels, and to co-supervise undergraduate Honours student research projects and independent studies.

The undergraduate offering of the Department of Earth Sciences, which features a strong fieldwork component, includes B.Sc. programs (Honours, Major and General), as well as a Concentration in Geophysics (Honours). Geophysics forms an essential core requirement of six Earth Sciences programs, combined programs or concentrations, as well as a key component of the well subscribed and increasingly popular B.Sc. Honours program in Earth Sciences with a Concentration in Geophysics.

At the graduate level, the Department offers M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs. Together with the Department of Earth Sciences at the nearby University of Ottawa, we form the core of the Ottawa-Geoscience Centre (OCGC), a collaborative research and graduate institution. In addition, the main headquarters of the Geological Survey of Canada, the Canadian Museum of Nature, and several other federal, science-based agencies with whom we collaborate, are also located in the city.

6. 2018 NASA Planetary Science Summer Seminar Applications Open

NASA is accepting applications – from science and engineering post-docs, recent PhDs, doctoral students, engineering students within 6-9 months of completion of their master’s degree but not planning to pursue a PhD degree, and junior faculty – for its 30th Annual Planetary Science Summer Seminar, which will be held August 6-10, 2018 at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

During the program and pre-session webinars, student teams will carry out the equivalent of an early mission concept study, prepare a proposal authorization presentation, present it to a review board, and receive feedback. By the end of the session, students will have a clearer understanding of the life cycle of a space mission; relationships between mission design, cost, and schedule; and the tradeoffs necessary to stay within cost and schedule while preserving the quality of science.
