                      Ph.D. student position:
              stable isotopes - climate change


We seek a Ph.D. student to develop a new method to analyse stable
isotopes in tree rings. The project is a collaboration between Organic
Chemistry, Umee University, Sweden; Forest Ecology, Swedish University
of Agricultural Sciences, Umee; and Climate & Environmental Physics,
University of Bern, Switzerland. The student will be based at Organic
Chemistry, but will spend time in the other groups.
The aim of the Ph.D. is to study the interaction between the atmospheric
CO2 concentration and tree physiology. We will study trees' response to
past CO2 increase, by studying stable isotopes in a 300-year tree ring
chronology. The Ph.D. student will develop new methods to analyse stable
isotopes in tree rings. The work will include Organic Chemistry lab
work, NMR spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy, and work with tree rings.

We seek a chemist/biochemist for this position, candidates with other
backgrounds may also be considered. Applications, including a C.V.,
transcript of courses taken, addresses of references, possible
publications, should be sent to:
