Job description

A 24-month postdoctoral position is available at University of Sao Paulo (USP) to candidates with experience in tropical dendrochronology and stable isotope geochemistry. It is part of a Sao Paulo Science Foundation (FAPESP/Brazil) and National Science Foundatio (NSF/USA) funded research project that aims reconstructing the climate in South America by using tree rings and speleothem records. Specifically, the post-doctoral researcher will build chronologies based tree-ring width and stable carbon and oxygen isotope records to assess the variability in the South American Monsoon System and to integrate past climate data obtained from annually resolved speleothem archives. The researcher will have access to laboratory facilities at University of São Paulo to perform the tree-ring chronology and stable isotope analyses.
