PhD position (75% TV-H) at the University of Gießen, Germany

The Department of Geography at the Justus Liebig University in Giessen / Germany, metropolitan region of Frankfurt / Main invites applications for a PhD position in “Reconstructing Landscape Evolution of the NE Iranian Plateau, applying luminescence dating techniques to Pleistocene-Holocene sediments”. The research project deals with the reconstruction of landscape evolution on the Iranian Plateau. Neotectonics, environmental and climatic changes have shaped the geomorphological development of the Plateau since the late Pleistocene, which will be reconstructed based on late Pleistocene-Holocene…

Short course @Uni Innsbruck: From photons to aeons – optical dating in earth sciences and archaeology, 15-19 June 2020

Luminescence dating is an important tool for studying the Quaternary. Classical luminescence dating dates when a grain of sand was last exposed to sunlight and subsequently buried, enabling researchers to address many questions in areas of Earth and environmental sciences as well as archaeological contexts. Additionally, the versatility of the luminescence signal allows for novel questions to be addressed – from soil mixing rates to geological uplift rates to sediment provinancing to dating of geological and archaeological rock surfaces. This…

Handbook of Luminescence Dating

A handbook for all geoscientists and archaeologists, who are interested in luminescence dating. It provides useful guidance on interpreting luminescence ages and using them in chronological frameworks, with a focus on various geomorphological contexts. It explains what luminescence can and can’t do, what and where to sample, types of measurements available and how to interpret and analyse ages once they are measured. It is accordingly for scientists who require luminescence ages for their research rather than those scientists developing the…
