Job TitleContaminant/Radionuclide Geochemistry Fate and Transport Postdoc
LocationLos Alamos, NM, USOrganization NameEES-14/Earth System
You Will Do*
The geochemistry team in the Earth Systems Observation/EES-14 is seeking
outstanding candidates for a post-doctoral fellow to perform laboratory and
field characterization of fate and transport of radionuclides and other
contaminants under a wide range of potential hydrogeologic conditions
(e.g., porous or fractured media, saturated or unsaturated media, various
geochemical environments). The successful candidate will work within a
multidisciplinary team to examine the physical and chemical mechanisms and
rates of reactive solute and colloid transport processes and to translate
the knowledge gained into process models that can be incorporated into
state-of-the-art contaminant transport and risk assessment models.
*What You Need*
*Minimum Job Requirements:*
Applicants should have experience conducting field and/or laboratory scale
experiments to interrogate contaminant transport processes and/or reactive
transport characteristics of aquifers. Other desired skills
include: Experience with micro- or nano-scale characterizations of
contaminant/radionuclide speciation, including probing of surface
interactions, experience working with radiological materials, experience
with chemical and/or radiochemical analytical instrumentation, and
experience in geology, hydrology, analytical chemistry or actinide
chemistry. Applicants should have strong written and oral communication
skills demonstrated through publications in respected international
journals and presentations at international conferences.
*Education: *A Ph.D. in geochemistry, chemical or environmental
engineering, environmental chemistry, hydrogeology, or closely related
fields completed within the last five years is required.
*Notes to Applicants: *Interested applicants should send a cover letter and
a resume. The cover letter should address the candidate experience and how
it applies to the opening.
*No Clearance: *Position does not require a security clearance. Selected
