The School of Geographical & Earth Sciences is looking to recruit a Research Associate to make a leading contribution to quantify hinterland denudation during the Cenozoic evolution of the Central and Eastern European Alps integrating landscape evolution and thermo-kinematic numerical models. Driven by new low-thermochronological data along key geophysical transects (NFP-20E, TRANSALP, EASI), the project will link surface responses preserved in the present-day geomorphology of the Alpine hinterland and the stratigraphic record to long-wavelength climatic variability and mantle processes. Changes in hinterland denudation will be evaluated in the context of (i) potential slab break-off events in the Central to Eastern Alps during Oligocene/Miocene time, (ii) climate change since the Miocene, and (iii) a proposed subduction polarity reversal in the Eastern Alps.

Through this work the successful candidate will make a leading contribution to the project ‘Quantifying the Effects of Mantle Processes and Climate Variability on Hinterland Denudation in the Central and Eastern Alps since the Oligocene’ that is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) within ‘Theme 2: Surface response to changes in deep structure on different time scales’ of the priority program ‘Mountain Building Processes in Four Dimensions (MB-4D)’. The candidate will work in close collaboration with Dr Paul R. Eizenhöfer as well as 25 linked projects distributed across universities in Germany.

The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as help manage and direct this complex and challenging project as opportunities allow.

Informal enquiries about the role are welcomed, and should be addressed to Dr. Paul R. Eizenhöfer (Paul.Eizenhoefer@glasgow.ac.uk).
