Postdoc Positions in Nanoscale Sediment Transport and Fungi-Mediated
Mineral Weathering at the University of Pennsylvania
The Department of Earth & Environmental Science at the University of
is currently accepting applications for two postdoctoral investigators.
Research will focus on two subjects: (1) aggregate formation and reactive
transport of colloids in porous media, and (2) fungi-, plant- and
microbe-mediated weathering of serpentine minerals. Results will be applied
to understanding transport and remediation of asbestos in the environment,
working in a highly collaborative and multidisciplinary environment with
Drs. B. Casper, R. Gieré, D. Jerolmack, J.K. Willenbring, and D. Yates.
Experience with TEM and SEM techniques is preferred. This project is funded
through an NIEHS Superfund Research and Training grant to the University of
Pennsylvania, and postdocs will engage broadly with environmental and
health scientists. Positions provide competitive salary and benefits.
Support is available initially for one year, with the possibility of
renewal for a second year. Please, e-mail a single pdf containing a cover
letter, CV, and the names and contact information for three references to
erosion at sas.upenn.edu.
