PhD position

PhD position on H2 clumped isotopes at IMAU (1.0 FTE)

We have set up for the first time worldwide a measurement method for H2 clumped isotopes at natural isotopic composition, using the high-resolution mass spectrometer MAT-253 Ultra at IMAU. We are now looking for an outstanding candidate for further developing this work and applying these measurements to H2 from natural samples. This is a challenging but very rewarding project, and integrates elements of Physics, Chemistry, Geology and (Micro)Biology. Read more.
