Geochemistry and Isotope Geology

Welcome to the website of the Geochemistry and Isotope Geology Department at the Faculty of Geoscience and Geography in Göttingen!

The Department is an integral part of the Geoscience Centre Göttingen (“Geowissenschaftliches Zentrum Göttingen” – GZG) with collaborations across the Faculty, the Göttingen Campus and beyond (Analytical Services). We collaborate with many national and international researchers on a multitude of topics, some of which you will find highlighted under (Research). The Geochemistry and Isotope Geology Department has recently seen some major instrumental investments, such as the delivery of new mass spectrometers (ThermoFisher Scientific 253 Ultra, Neptune Plus, iCAP-Q, MAT 253), the current installation of a second self-built IR-Laser fluorination line as well as the construction of a new state-of-the-art clean room sample preparation suite (Analytical Facilities).
The Department is also home of the Digital Geochemistry Infrastructure (DIGIS) project that will continue the highly successful GEOROC database and considerably expand its capabilities to deliver maximum service to the community and implementation of FAIR data principles (findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable).

If you are interested in joining our young and inspiring research team, either as a postdoc, as a PhD student or to carry out your Master’s or Bachelor’s project with us, please get into contact with either Prof. Andreas Pack (stable isotopes) or Prof. Matthias Willbold (radiogenic isotopes). If you are interested in starting a PhD or Postdoc with us, please also check out the Georg-August University School of Science (GAUSS) webpage for further information regarding the University’s current graduate and early career programmes.

We hope you enjoy roaming our website and would welcome your comments. By the way, time permitting, we sometimes simply enjoy the views from our fourth floor offices (see above).

Your lecture to go: You can subscribe to selected lectures and follow the course online. An example is the course "Scientific writing" (Prof. Andreas Pack). You have to log on at Stud.IP and follow the link to the lecture.
