September 2019 – I gave a keynote at the annual conference of the German Geological Society in Munster this week. After a minor hiccup (there are 2 Munsters in Germany, Munster and Münster, and I bought train tickets to the wrong one!) all went well. I spoke on ‘Coral geochemistry – a window into the biomineralisation process’.
19 August 2019. This week I’m in Barcelona for the 2019 Goldschmidt Geochemistry meeting. I travelled to the meeting by train!
I’ve written a blog post on some of the recent work in the coral lab for VisitScotland’s Scotland is Now website. Read about a little piece of the tropics in St. Andrews here.
We’ve just advertised 2 posts to recruit a PDRA and a RA/PDRA for the lab. The 2 posts are:
Post-doctoral research fellow (3 years) on the NERC funded project ‘Trace element and isotope partitioning in carbonates in simulated biological environments’.
Post-graduate research assistant (9 months) on the Leverhulme Trust funded project ‘The control of coral biomineralisation’ .
To apply for either post go here and search for posts in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences. For further information contact me at na9 at st-andrews.ac.uk. Closing date 22 October 2018.
7 September 2018 – This week I’m in Bristol for the EMAS workshop on Microbeam Analysis in the Earth Sciences. I’m giving an invited talk on ‘SIMS in synthetic and biological carbonates’.
