The Isotope Geochemistry Group at the Department of Earth Sciences, ETH
Zurich,Switzerland seeks two highly motivated postdoctoral researchers and a PhD
student for a European Research Council (ERC) funded research program. This program
includes geochemical and isotopic investigations to evaluate the late accretion history of 
the Earth and the formation of the earliest silicate reservoirs in planets and asteroids.

For the postdoctoral positions, experience with ion-exchange chemistry,
multicollector ICPMS and/or TIMS is desirable. Both positions will initially be for two
years, but renewable up to a total of 5 and 3.5 years, respectively. The successful
candidate of the 5-year position will develop new analytical procedures for isotopic
analyses of highly siderophile elements and will closely be involved in the supervision of
the PhD student. The 3.5-year position will mainly focus on the shortlived Nb-Zr decay system.

The PhD project is suitable for a student with a background in geology,chemistry,
physics, planetary sciences, or equivalent experience. The student will be trained in
cutting-edge analytical work (including clean room work and multi-collector ICP-MS)
carried out at state-of-the art geochemical facilities at the ETH Zürich.
These techniques have numerous applications across the range of analyticalsciences. 
The PhD position will be offered for 3 years with a possible 1 year extension.

A starting date in the period from April to October 2012 is negotiable.
Applicants should submit a statement of individual research interests, a
Curriculum Vita including publication list and the names of three referees to Britt
Meyer at birgitta.meyer_at_erdw.ethz.ch. Review of applications will begin on 20 February 2012
until the positions are filled.
