Postdoc position in experimental petrology in The Laboratory of Geology at Lyon (University Lyon1 & ENS de Lyon, France)

Research will focus on the experimental investigation of hydrothermal alteration of ultramafic minerals under conditions relevant for natural systems with emphasis on CO2conversion and carbon speciation during reactions. Our institution has facilities for high-pressure/high-temperature fluid-rock experiments (large volume autoclaves with fluid sampling, low-pressure diamond-anvil cells) and for extensive fluid and rock characterization (GC-MS, ICP-MS, Raman spectroscopy). Complementary techniques are available on the campus (e.g. X-Ray Diffraction, electron microscopy). Synchrotron-based experiments or analyses are also considered. The successful applicant will work in close collaboration with an international group of scientists of the Deep Carbon Observatory science network (

The candidate should hold a PhD in Earth Sciences or Chemistry. An experience or a strong affinity for laboratory experimental work and analytical techniques is mandatory. Experience in thermodynamic modeling of fluid-rock reactions and/or of organic chemistry will be appreciated. The initial appointment will be for a period of one year and may be extended depending on the funding situation.

To apply, submit the following materials via email in Adobe PDF format: current CV that includes education, employment history, awards, publications; and the names and contact information for 3 references. The position is available immediately and will remain open until filled. Applicants should send applications electronically (in PDF form) as an email attachment to  Dr Muriel Andreani (
