Two postdoc Positions, one PhD student – EarthCube Geochronology & Cyberinformatics University of Wisconsin-Madison Departments of Geoscience and Geography
We seek two postdocs and a PhD student to join a new NSF EarthCube (https://earthcube.org) project aimed at addressing a ‘grand challenge’ in the Earth sciences: to seamlessly blend geochronological information into an integrated four-dimensional digital Earth so that we may fully understand dynamic Earth system evolution through time. We envision that these postdocs will work as a team with the PIs during the 3 year tenure of this grant. We recognize that few applicants for these positions will have all skills equally developed; as such, cross-training is part of the project goal for all participants.
