Franck Poitrasson

Franck Poitrasson is Directeur de Recherche CNRS at the Geosciences Environment laboratory in Toulouse (GET). He obtained his PhD in Isotope Geochemistry from the University of Clermont-Ferrand (1994) and then moved to an EC-funded post-doc to study accessory minerals by LA-ICP-MS at the British Geological Survey, Keyworth, UK. He was then hired as Chargé de Recherche CNRS in Toulouse to pursue his research on accessory minerals in 1996. An invited professorship at ETH-Zürich in 2001-2002 was an opportunity to develop a new research domain on planet formation using the “non-traditional” stable isotopes of iron based on MC-ICP-MS analyses, whereas a second sabbatical stay as Pesquisador Colaborador Sênior and Directeur de Recherche IRD at the University of Brasilia in 2009-2011 was an opportunity to expand his non-traditional stable isotope research on the Amazon River Basin.

Besides his leadership of the non-traditional stable isotope group in Toulouse for the last 15 years, Franck Poitrasson is/was Associate Editor/Editorial Board member of Contributions to Mineralogy and Petrology, the European Journal of Mineralogy and Chemical Geology, coordinator of a European-Brazilian, EC-funded research laboratory on the Amazon River Basin, President of the Société Française des IsotopeS and of the Scientific Council of the Institut National des Sciences de l’Univers (CNRS-INSU).
