UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis


Post-doctoral fellowship in karst hydrogeology, isotope geochemistry, and paleoclimate, Jackson School of Geosciences, The University of Texas at Austin.

We seek a postdoctoral fellow with expertise in one or more of the following areas: karst hydrogeology, isotope geochemistry, and paleoclimate. Pending approval of funding, this position will be part of a project to examine the utility of speleothems to reconstruct the Pleistocene-Holocene climatic history of the Edwards Plateau in central Texas. Experience with instrumentation, both for field
monitoring (data logging of drips, cave air, and soil conditions, etc.) and laboratory-based studies (U-series disequilibrium dating), is preferred. The Jackson School of Geosciences houses state-of-the-art mass spectrometry facilities and strong research groups in the hydrologic and climate sciences. Opportunities for interdisciplinary studies are available through the Environmental Science Institute. Funding is for one year, with the potential for renewal of appointment up to three years.

The position is available starting in January 2009 or sooner. To apply, send a CV and letter of interest to Jay L. Banner at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The University of Texas is an equal opportunity employer.
