The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University seeks outstanding candidates for a postdoctoral or more senior research position investigating the geochemistry of geologic carbon sequestration. The position involves taking the lead in applying molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and/or reactive transport simulations to investigate CO2 trapping in geologic carbon sequestration. Specific topics of interest include clay aggregation and swelling in CO2-charged brine, the wettability of mineral surfaces by brine vs. CO2, and the coupling between geochemistry and geomechanics during brine and CO2 flow through fractured shales. The position requires coordinating with an interdisciplinary team of investigators at multiple institutions that is studying the nanoscale basis of geologic carbon sequestration using experimental and simulation techniques. The candidate needs to be interested in working collaboratively with other research staff and graduate students within the team.
The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in a relevant science or engineering field, experience in MD simulations or reactive transport modeling, experience in the geochemistry of mineral-water interfaces, good interpersonal skills, and advanced proficiency in communicating scientific findings in peer-reviewed journals and at professional meetings. Desirable qualifications include experience in the aqueous geochemistry of clay minerals and clay-rich rocks.
Initial term of appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal based on satisfactory performance and funding. This position is subject to the University's background check policy. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis; preference will be given to candidates who apply by July 15, 2015, with a start date of September 1 or shortly thereafter.
Interested applicants should submit application online at http://jobs.princeton.edu requisition number 1500353. Applications should include a cover letter, a curriculum vita and list of publications, a statement of research experience and interests, and contact information (address, email and telephone) of three referees.
Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
