Geomünster 2019

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’.

Scotland is Now Blog

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.


New posts in biomineralisation

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 Closing date 22 October 2018.
