Description :

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department of Carnegie Mellon University is seeking a post-doctoral researcher in environmental chemistry. The candidate should have research interests in metal contamination and transformation in environmental matrices. Candidates must have demonstrated experience using synchrotron X-ray absorption spectroscopy for determining metal speciation in environmental samples (e.g. soils and subaquatic sediment or similar matrices), and/or experience using synchrotron X-ray Fluorescence and XANES mapping to speciate metals in environmental (soil) or biological samples (plant tissue). Strong analytic skills for data treatment are required (Linear combination and shell-by-shell fitting). Trips to synchrotron facilities (SLAC, Standford and NSLSII, Brookhaven, mainly) are expected a couple of times per year. Experience with mercury and/or arsenic geochemistry, and working knowledge of other solid phase characterization methods for metals (e.g. XRD, FTIR, XPS, ICP-MS, spICP-TOF-MS) are desirable. A demonstrated ability to publish research in high quality journals, meet deadlines, and write proposals is required. Effective English language oral and written communication are needed.
