The NTNU University Museum invites applicants for two PostDoc Fellowships in 14C/cosmogenic dating techniques and applications. Both fellowships are for a period of two (2) years with the possibility of one year prolongation given available funding.

About the laboratory
The National Laboratory for Age Determination consists of laboratories for radiocarbon- and dendrochronology. The carbon dating facilities include a mass spectrometer with an elemental analyzer used for stable isotope (13C) analysis, a HVEE AMS instrument for 14C measurements, and lines for 14C sample graphitization. The laboratory is undergoing a restructure and consolidation phase with regard to external services and research areas. These changes involve expansions in research areas, establishment of new preparation lines, web-solutions for customers, and new dating services. This offers a unique possibility to be a part of an interdisciplinary research group in applications and development of 14C and cosmogenic dating techniques for the years to come.

The National Laboratory for Age Determination is part of the NTNU University Museum, which has a strong research focus on archaeology, natural history and cross-disciplinary environmental topics. As the only facility of its kind in Norway, the laboratory offers age determination of archaeological and geological material by the 14C AMS technique. The laboratory is staffed with engineers and researchers ranging in specialties such as sample preparation, physics, dendrochronology/climatology, archaeology and Quaternary geology. The laboratory collaborates closely with other dating laboratories, research institutions, and governmental agencies through research projects and dating services.

Job descriptions and qualifications
Both PostDoc Fellows will be part of the research group at the laboratory. They are expected to contribute to the research efforts in ongoing activities as well as initiate new fields of investigation.

PostDoc 1 will conduct basic and applied research in 14C dating techniques connected with the AMS instrument and preparation lines. He/she will also be responsible for investigating and setting up an automated preparation line for routine samples.

PostDoc 2 will perform research in applications of 14C dating in palaeoclimatic/geologic cross-disciplinary research. He/she will be responsible for establishing cosmogenic dating techniques as a field of research within the laboratory and as an external service to customers.

Both PostDoc Fellows are required to contribute in establishing an educational program in dating techniques and its applications. They are expected to apply for and obtain external funding for research projects and to interact in interdisciplinary collaborations with other departments at NTNU and other research institutions, as well as in national and international research programs.

The ideal candidate for PostDoc 1 must hold a PhD in physics or chemistry, whereas applicants for PostDoc 2 should preferably have a PhD in Quaternary/marine geology, or another relevant field of the earth sciences. Applicants should demonstrate professional qualifications within essential areas of 14C dating methodology and applications. Emphasis is strongly placed on cooperative and communicative skills. English language proficiency must be documented.

Application and other information
Applications with motivation letter, CV including a full list of publications and other scientific works, certified copies of transcripts and certificates from Master, PhD and other relevant exams or experience, copies of maximum 5 publications, and a list of contact information for three references should be submitted electronically through the web portal jobbnorge.no (link below).

NTNU is an equal opportunity employer and values diversity in the workforce. The appointments will be made according to the general regulations regarding university employees. Post Doc research positions are remunerated at wage code 1352 – levels 57 to 77 on the Norwegian State salary scale, with gross salary from NOK 473 100,- to NOK 696 300,- a year. Normal wage level is 57-62. There is a compulsory 2 % deduction to the pension fund.
