Open Position

Postdoctoral Researcher

Civil and Environmental Engineering

Carnegie Mellon University

I am seeking a post-doctoral researcher in environmental chemistry.
Candidates must have experience using synchrotron X-ray absorption
spectroscopy for determining metal speciation in environmental samples (or
similar matrices), and/or experience using synchrotron X-ray Fluorescence
and XANES mapping (GeoPIXIE) to speciate metals in environmental or
biological samples. Experience with mercury and/or arsenic geochemistry,
and working knowledge of other characterization methods for metal-based
nanoparticles (e.g. XRD, FTIR, XPS, ICP-MS, spICP-TOF-MS) are desirable. A
demonstrated ability to publish research in high quality journals, meet
deadlines, and write proposals is required. Effective English language oral
and written communication are required.

The candidate will interact with an interdisciplinary research team of
faculty, post-docs, and Ph.D. students and with industry collaborators on a
variety of projects including speciating Hg in matrices relevant to oil and
gas exploration and metals speciation in plants. The successful candidate
will be expected to design and conduct experiments in aqueous and
non-aqueous matrices, collect and analyze synchrotron XAS spectra on
samples containing mercury, arsenic, and other metals, prepare manuscripts
and monthly research reports, assist in proposal writing, and present
findings at national and international professional conferences. The
position is for a minimum of one year, renewable depending on performance.

Interested applicants should contact Prof. Greg Lowry glowry at cmu.edu.
Please send a brief cover letter, curriculum vitae, a brief statement of
research interests and the contact information for at least three
references. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
