Job Description

We invite you to apply for a Postdoctoral Appointee position with our Chemical Sciences and Engineering Division (CSE). 

In this role you will:

  • Perform innovative research through the use, application, and development of coherent x-ray scattering techniques to understand molecular-scale processes occurring at mineral-water interfaces and in geomaterials. 
  • Develop innovative experimental and conceptual approaches for such studies using high-brilliance synchrotron radiation. 
  • Interpret experimental data and presents results at scientific conferences and in peer-reviewed literature.

We expect you to have:

  • Knowledge of synchrotron-based x-ray scattering and spectroscopy techniques for in situi> and operandoi> studies to probe structure and reactivity. 
  • Knowledge of interfacial science, low-temperature geochemistry or materials science; experimental techniques in interfacial science; and mathematical techniques and computer programming for data analysis. 
  • Skill in working interactively and productively in a multidisciplinary environment and good ability to work independently.
  • Strong oral and written communication skills and good record of publication and external recognition in relevant areas. 
  • Skill in the use and maintenance of laboratory equipment.
  • This level of knowledge is typically achieved through a formal education in x-ray physics, materials science, interfacial chemistry, or geochemistry at the Ph.D. degree level with 0 to 3 years of experience or equivalent in the scientific application of this knowledge and practical laboratory experience.
  • This position may require the ability to travel for work at out-of-state synchrotron facilities when required.
