Position: PhD scholarship in Optically Stimulated Luminescence Dating
Institution: Technical University of Denmark
Location: Kongens Lyngby, Lyngby‐Taarbæk Municipality, Denmark
Duties: Establishing a robust protocol for measuring the dose recorded by single grains of feldspar for a variety of samples and grain sizes; Determining internal dose rates in single grains of feldspar using µ-XRF and LA-ICP-MS methods and correlating these with measured doses for a variety of samples and grain sizes; Using luminescence characteristics (e.g. thermal stability and luminescence sensitivity) to differentiate between individual grains of different types of feldspar; Determining the time of formation of the GrIS at different geographical locations using samples from different Ice cores
Requirements: The successful candidate is motivated, meticulous, independent, hardworking and a team player. As a formal qualification, you must have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree in physics, chemistry, geoscience or similar. Candidates with previous experience in luminescence dating using OSL will be preferred
