PhD (Doktoranden) Research Opportunity for a Petrographer/Geochemist

in the

Impact Cratering Research Group, University of the Witwatersrand,
Johannesburg

Beginning at the end of October/early November 2001, the International
Continental Scientific Drilling Programme (ICDP) will drill a deep borehole
into the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary Chicxulub impact structure
located at the edge of the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico. The Impact
Cratering Research Group at Wits University has a long and successful
history of geological, mineralogical, and geochemical investigations of
impact structures in nearly all parts of the world. We have obtained a
comprehensive research grant (covering reseqarch and living expenses)
from the American Chemical Society for a 3-year PhD project aimed at
making a major contribution to the petrographic-chemical analysis of the
various impact breccia components and their constituents in this
Chicxulub drillcore. The aim is to contribute to a better understanding of
the impact cratering process, through analysis of derivation and mixing
of target rock components. The drill core will be investigated by an
international consortium, in which many of the foremost researchers in
planetology and earth sciences will interact. The project will begin as
soon as core samples become available, likely around February/March
2002.

The successful candidate for this project should have a sound
mineralogical-geochemical background. Shock petrographic expertise is
not a prerequisite training on the job can be provided.

The Impact Cratering Research Group comprises 7 researchers from a
number of research and teaching departments at Wits University. All
geological disciplines are covered. The School of Geoscience at Wits
encompasses the Departments of Geology, Geophysics, and
Palaeontology, as well as a number of research entities. State-of-the-art
analytical equipment includes XRF/XRD, scanning electron microscopy,
a radiogenic isotope laboratory, a laser-Raman spectrometry, fluid
inclusion and cathodoluminescence laboratories. Other facilities are
available in Johannesburg, or through close collaborative links
universities abroad.
