The Task Group on Tectonics and Structural Geology (TecTask) is a commission of IUGS. TecTask represents an initiative of Earth Scientists dedicated to stimulate communication and coordination within the international science community and to provide information to the public. The group encourages innovative research and continued education in structural geology and tectonics, the growth of intellectual capital and hence the impact of our science on the wealth of the global society. TecTask reaches out to scientists and students, particularly those from developing countries, to share cutting edge research and development, and state-of-the-art training. Dialogue and cooperation is encouraged with non-academic organisations, industries and governmental bodies regarding applications of structural geology and tectonics to sustainable use of the world’s natural resources, the preservation of the environment, and prevention of natural hazards.

Dear all,

Apologies for cross-posting.

We invite applications for a fully-funded two-year post-doc position at the Earth Sciences Institute of Paris, within the OROGEN program. The project aims at combining detailed mineralogical work and thermobarometry to study the low-grade metamorphic evolution of the Axial Zone of the Pyrenees (more details in the attachment). Experience with TEM is desirable. The project is expected to start in early 2018.

Please forward this message to potential candidates and feel free to contact us for more information.

Many thanks and best wishes,

N. Bellahsen and B. Dubacq
