The Durham Geochemistry Centre carries out multi-disciplinary research in Earth, Environmental, Physical, Biological, Medical and Archaeological Sciences using an established base of world class equipment and laboratories, and expertise in the technical and applied aspects of their use. The Group plays a key role in catalysing leading edge cross-disciplinary research within the campus, in the North of England, and nationally and Internationally. The Durham Geochemistry Centre (DGC) has strong links with other centres such as the Centre for Research into Earth Energy Systems (CeREES), and the Durham Energy Institute (DEI). Integrated within DGG are the Arthur Holmes Laboratories (AHL), the industry sponsored - Source Rock and Sulfide Geochronology and Geochemistry Laboratory, the Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry Laboratory (SIBL) and the Sir Kingsley Dunham Palaeoclimate Laboratory.
Our aim is to play a leading role in developing innovative techniques for isotope and elemental tracing in Earth, Environmental, Physical, Archaeological, Biological and Biomedical sciences.
To apply those techniques in partnership with industry, research councils, and government to undertake internationally excellent and world leading research in Geochemistry.
Within this framework the training and professional development of young scientists is a key priority of the Durham Geochemistry Group. While young researchers sometimes work on very different aspects of geochemistry, from field and experimental studies to theory and modelling, these are brought together with a comprehensive training programme that provides a common grounding in both theory and technique.
We are always interested in hearing from individuals with a strong science background who may wish to join us as Research Fellows, Postdoctoral Researchers or Graduate Students.
