The Aqueous Geochemistry and Mineralogy group at Washington University in
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
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
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
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 (catalano at eps.wustl.edu ).
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.
