PhD position in mineralogical crystallography

Dear colleagues,
I am going to have a 3-year post-doc position in mineralogical crystallography, to investigate long period polytypes of oxybiotite from the Ruiz Peak, New Mexico. The PhD will start in September-October but I have to submit the CV of a candidate as soon as possible.
Candidates must fulfil some conditions, namely:

– have got the Master degree during the academic year 2007-2008
(candidates still doing their Master are acceptable, with a letter of the supervisor), i.e. no interruption is allowed between Master and PhD.
Exceptions are allowed only for physiological pregnancy) or pathological (illness) conditions forcing the candidate to an interruption of 4 months or more, or the participation to a stage abroad (no longer than one year)

The amount of the PhD grant is about 1100 euros per month (all taxes already subtracted).

Thank you in advance.
