The contribution of deep lithospheric processes to the evolution of mountain belts and foreland basins remains enigmatic. A recently funded research project aims to constrain the effects of lithospheric processes in the northern foreland basin of the Alps by combing thermochronological data with kinematic models of shortening and exhumation over the Late Cenozoic.
This is a joint project of RWTH Aachen University and the University of Göttingen, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). It is part of the DFG Priority Program "Mountain Building Processes in Four Dimensions (MB-4D)" (http://www.spp-mountainbuilding.de/),
and will involve frequent interaction (workshops, conferences) with the ~20 research projects in this priority program.
You can expect a very diverse and challenging job in an international and multidisciplinary work environment. RWTH Aachen is part of the ABC/J Geoverbund and therefore well connected with Cologne and Bonn Universities and Jülich Research Center. RWTH is an equal opportunity employer. We will retain your application documents for at least three months, even if application is not successful. They will not be returned.
