Postdoctoral Fellow Vacancy at Dept of Earth Sciences, ETH Zurich

The Earth and Planetary Magnetism Group have a vacancy within their experimental fluid mechanics and MHD laboratory. We seek a motivated scientist with an interest in participating in ongoing experiments, and in developing research interests of their own. Present facilities include a water laboratory and the ability to perform liquid metal experiments.

Experiments are aimed at understanding the rapidly rotating regime of Earth’s core dynamics, in the presence of magnetic fields. Future experiments will include current-driven flows (Dean flow) in both non-rotating and rapidly-rotating regimes.

The position is nominally for 2 years, with a possibility of subsequent renewal subject to funding constraints.
ETH Zurich offers excellent work conditions at the heart of Europe. Interested candidates should send a CV (including publication list), a statement of research interests and the names of 3 referees to Andrew Jackson
