International Ocean Discovery Program Expedition 358 "NanTroSEIZE Deep Riser Drilling: Nankai Seismogenic/Slow Slip Megathrust"
Special call for a shore-based paleontologist (nannofossil specialist)
Deadline for applications is 7 March 2019.For contingency operations of IODP Expedition 358, we would like to select a paleontologist who has a background of late Miocene to Pleistocene calcareous nannofossils.
During the contingency operation in March 2019, we plan to drill Site NT1-03C at the toe of frontal accretionary prism and Site KB-1B at the Kumano Forearc Basin, both in the Nankai Trough. For Site NT1-03C, middle Pleistocene to modern slope sediments, early to middle Pleistocene trench-fill sediments, and late Miocene to Pliocene hemipelagic sediments are expected to comprise the hanging wall of the frontal thrust, whereas late Miocene to Pliocene trench-fill sediments are expected to underthrust. For Site KB-01B, Pliocene to Pleistocene forearc basin sediments as well as underlying late Miocene (?) accretionary prism sediments are expected.
We welcome applications from nannofossil specialists able to immediately work on the samples as a shore-based scientist. Samples will be sent from Chikyu during middle-late March 2019 to the laboratory of the successful applicant for processing and analysis. There is no requirement for shipboard participation or international travel. The successful applicant will be a member of the Expedition 358 Science Party and be included in the authorship of the expedition reports.
