Welcome to the Webpage of the Geochemistry Division (Abteilung Geochemie) of the Geowissenschaftliches Zentrum (GZG) at the Georg August University of Göttingen.

Here you will find information on people, research, teaching and excursions, as well as directions how to find us.

We also provide a short historical summary on research in geochemistry, starting from Viktor Moritz Goldschmidt early last century.

Our research areas include igneous geochemistry and evolution of magma systems mainly at convergent plate margins (Andes, Central America, Kamchatka, Italy).

A comprehensive geochemical data base on igneous rocks from the Central Andean Volcanic Zone (>1500 analyses) is provided here through a clickable map. You are also welcome to download the data base as excel sheet, kml-file. When using, please refer to our recent publications by Mamani et al (2008, 2009).

For more information an downloads (Teaching materials, field excursion report on the student excursion to the Andes and touristic information on Parinacota Volcano and the Lauca National Park see here: Andes excursion


Professorship (W3) in Geochemistry

The Faculty of Geosciences and Geography of the Georg-August-University Göttingen (Germany) seeks to fill the by 01.04.2016.


Professorship (W3) in Geochemistry ("Victor-Moritz-Goldschmidt-Professorship")

We seek a candidate that represents the field of inorganic geochemistry/isotope geology, with specific interest in the fields of radiogenic and/or non-traditional stable isotopes in research and teaching. One research focus shall be on processes and material cycles in and on the Earth using new analytical approaches. We are looking for a creative, innovative and integrative geoscientist who strengthens the collaboration within the Department and external institutions.

We offer an attractive personnel and instrumental infrastructure at one of the leading geoscience institutions in Germany. The candidate will be involved in the undergraduate and graduate education within the Faculty. Preconditions include demonstrated teaching experience, highly visible international reputation, an outstanding publication record as well as the successful acquisition of significant external funding.

Appointments will be made by the University according to the laws of Lower Saxony (Niedersaechsisches Hochschulgesetz §25). Further details can be given upon request. Applications from scientists outside the German academic system are explicitly encouraged. The University of Goettingen intends to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching, and hence strongly encourages female scientists to apply. Priority will be given to disabled persons with equivalent qualifications. Part time employment is possible under special circumstances. The University of Goettingen supports dual-career couples.

Please send your application (including CV, certificates, full publication list, statement about teaching experience, research plan, list of successfully acquired external funds) preferably in electronic form (single PDF) before
