Global Cd and Pb signal in the Pan-Arctic - Influence of local and distant sources

Project Description

In this project, we propose to define Cd, Pb isotope signals dominating in the Northern Hemisphere and its historical development. We will sample 11 sites around the Arctic Circle where we will collect snow samples, soils, lichens and gasoline and diesel from local sources. The snow sampling campaign will be performed at all sites simultaneously. We will combine traditional radiogenic isotope systems (Sr, Nd) with Pb and Cd isotopes to distinguish between regional, crust derived, anthropogenic and local and more distant sources of Pb and Cd in the Pan-Arctic.

The Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group, Faculty of Environmental Sciences, CULS Prague opens PhD positions starting in October 2020.

- Diploma in a relevant discipline (e.g., chemistry, soil science, biology, geochemistry)
- Solid analytical background
- Ability to work in an interdisciplinary team

Note that this is just a pre-selection. The selected candidate will be invited to submit official application to the Faculty of Environmental Sciences.

Funding Notes

The PhD project is supported by external grants of the supervisor.
Within the 4 years study period, the PhD students will be rewarded with 17000 - 23000 CZK/month net (680 - 920 EUR), which is sufficient for living in the Czech Republic. The total salary consists of scholarship (fixed) and participation in projects, internal grants, and bonuses (flexible).
