On Tuesday, I gave a presentation and had an interview on a PhD position at the Palaeontological Institute and Museum of the Zürich University. I got the the job and I proudly announce that I will work on the recovery of benthic marine communities after the Permian-Triassic mass extinction event. I will (and will have to) learn alot. The project will besupervised by Dr. Michael Hautmann and Prof. Hugo Bucher. The invitation letter outlining the project is posted on aragosaurus.blogspot.com. A research abstract is available here (pdf).
