We invite applications for a Research Fellow in Tephrostratigraphy to participate in the reconstruction of the eruptive history of Sumatra (Indonesia). This will involve field work for site selection and collection of sediment cores from lakes and/or peatbogs, identification of tephra layers (including the cryptic ones) followed by their geochemical analysis, sample dating by radiocarbon or Ar/Ar methods. The successful candidate will work in a vibrant scientific department with a team of international scientists.
