The University of Angers is offering a Junior Professorship chair for the start of the the beginning of the academic year 2022-2023, on the theme "Understanding the evolution of the past oceanic carbonate system: experimental approach on the geochemistry of
foraminifera"
.

The profile sought is a young scientist of high international level capable of implementing innovative geochemical approaches for the development of palaeo-oceanographic proxies based on foraminifera. The person recruited will carry out his/her research within the Anjou component of the UMR CNRS Laboratoire de Planétologie et Géosciences, which possesses a worldwide reputation on the biology/ecology/paleobiology/paleoecology of these marine micro-organisms.
