The Savannah River Ecology Laboratory (SREL) at the University of Georgia is seeking applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Aquatic Biogeochemistry. The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary team investigating the biogeochemical processes controlling the sequestration, bioaccumulation, toxicity and transport of contaminant metals in constructed and natural wetland, and riparian systems. Responsibilities include assisting with ongoing studies on water and sediment chemistry including metal analysis using ICP-MS and ICP-OES. However, there will be opportunities for collaborations with other researchers focused on contaminant bioaccumulation and ecotoxicology in macroinvertebrates.
Qualifications: A Ph.D. in an ecological/environmental science with a strong chemistry background and experience in water quality and metal analysis. Research experience in wetland studies is highly desirable.
The successful applicant is expected to demonstrate commitment to timely completion of deliverables, commitment to publication of results in peer-reviewed journals, and strong potential to work collaboratively with other scientist from multiple disciplines. The successful applicant also is expected to assist with training graduate and undergraduate students involved in these research programs.
Savannah River Ecology Laboratory: The position is located at the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory in Aiken, SC. The Savannah River Ecology Laboratory is a research unit of the University of Georgia located on the 801 km2 Savannah River Site, a Department of Energy facility near Aiken, SC. With a staff of over 90 faculty, postdocs, research professionals, technicians, and graduate students, the laboratory pursues basic and applied research at multiple levels of ecological organization, from atoms to ecosystems. SREL also provides opportunities for graduate and undergraduate research training, and service to the community through environmental outreach. Throughout its 60+ year history SREL has strived to acquire and communicate knowledge that contributes to sound ecological stewardship.
Applications will be reviewed starting June 1, 2015 and will continue until a suitable candidate has been identified. The initial appointment will be for 1 year with the possibility for renewal. Salary will be $35,000 per year plus benefits.
To apply, please send a 1) cover letter summarizing your research interests and qualifications for the position, 2) a CV, and 3) names and contact information for three references to Gary Mills: glmills at uga.edu<mailto:glmills at uga.edu>. Finalists will be required by University policy (www.hr.uga.edu) to provide a signed consent form authorizing the University to conduct a background check. Actual background investigations will be conducted on a post-offer/pre-employment basis. The starting date is negotiable, but October 1, 2015 is preferred.
The University of Georgia is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or protected veteran status.
