Marine Radiochemistry
As a member of the Radiometrics Laboratory led by the Laboratory Head, the Research Scientist has to organise the processing of numerous marine samples/year for analysis on natural and artificial radionuclides and is responsible for the relevant project in the IAEA's programme. She/he contributes to develop new techniques for contamination and process studies in coastal zones using radioactive and stable isotopes.


ACS Academic Employment Initiative
To assist graduate and postdoctoral students, the ACS Office of Graduate Education and Department of Career Services are participating in a presidential program called the Academic Employment Initiative (AEI). The intent of this program is twofold: (1) to give colleges and universities exposure to a larger pool of candidates for faculty positions than is possible through current recruitment practices; and (2) to provide candidates the opportunity to convey their teaching and research goals to a wider audience. 11/29/06
