This position will augment current STFC funded cosmochemical research in the School of Earth Sciences, University of Bristol. The position will employ techniques already established to make high precision Mg isotope measurements by multi-collector, inductively coupled plasma mass-spectrometry to obtain Mg model ages (on separated ferromagnesiam minerals from chondrules) and compare these to Pb-Pb model ages derived by stepped leaching from the same chondrule. The Pb-Pb work will be carried out at the British Geological Survey (BGS), Keyworth, as part of a long-standing, on-going collaboration with Dr Daniel Condon.

The successful applicant will need to be have significant experience with these sophisticated analytical procedures and a thorough knowledge of meteorite petrology. The project will also involve an out-reach component and we seek and individual with an outstanding track record of public engagement to promote this work.
