"Postdoctoral Scientist Position in Aqueous Geochemistry and Mineralogy" has been added by Jennifer Williams to Listserve - CZEN on CZEN.org.
The Aqueous Geochemistry and Mineralogy group at Washington University in St.
Louis invites applications for a postdoctoral scientist position in environmental geochemistry and mineralogy. The primary focus of the position will be to the effect of phosphate on uranium adsorption, nucleation, and precipitation in subsurface sediments. This project will combine wet chemical studies with advanced spectroscopic, microscopic, and diffraction characterization methods to identify the chemical processes that affect uranium fate in the environment in the presence of phosphate. This project will involve collaborations with colleagues at both Washington University and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Travel to synchrotron light sources and other user facilities is required. Opportunities exist for the postdoctoral scientist to also participate in other existing and future projects in the group. Extensive experience in at least one of the following areas is desired: laboratory-based wet chemistry methods, XAFS spectroscopy, or advanced electron microscopy methods (e.g., TEM). The initial appointment will be for one year with a possible extension contingent on the availability of funds.
Applicants should send a current curriculum vitae, including publication list, statement of research interests, and the names and contact information for three references to Prof. Jeffrey Catalano ([log in to unmask] ).
A Ph.D. in a related field is required at the time of appointment. The position will be available starting January 1, 2014, although later dates of appointment can be negotiated; the position will remain open until filled.
This project is funded through the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Biological and Environmental Research, Subsurface Biogeochemistry Research Program. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Washington University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
