Post-Doctoral Positions

Post-doctoral position:  Nuclear Waste Corrosion
A post-doctoral position is currently open at the Chemistry Department of Washington State University, in the group of Prof. Nathalie A. Wall, who specializes in environmental radiochemistry. The successful candidate will work on a project that will help understand nuclear waste form corrosion and subsequent radionuclide releases – the waste forms to be studied include borosilicate glass, in a research project funded by the US department of Energy and carried in collaboration with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
Required qualifications include a PhD in Chemistry or related field and excellent spoken and written communication skills in English.  Preference will be given to individuals whose expertise includes waste corrosion studies in batch and dynamic conditions and geochemical modeling of waste corrosion.
WSU employs only U.S. citizens and lawfully authorized non-U.S. citizens. All new employees must show employment eligibility as required by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Post-Doctoral Position
The Department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences invites applications for a Research Associate position in environmental radiochemistry. Candidates must hold a PhD in radiochemistry,
environmental chemistry, geochemistry, environmental engineering and science or a closely related discipline.  The successful candidate is expected to perform laboratory experiments to support a Department of Energy funded research project. The objective of this research is to examine mechanisms and thermodynamics of actinide sorption to engineered barrier materials (iron (oxyhydr)oxides and bentonite clay) for nuclear waste repositories under high temperature and high ionic strength conditions using a suite of macroscopic and microscopic techniques which will be coupled with interfacial reaction models. Electronic submissions to are preferred, but applications may also be mailed to Dr. Brian A. Powell, Box 340919, Clemson University, Clemson, SC 29634-0919. More information can be found  at:

Postdoctoral Position in Nuclear Chemistry
A postdoctoral position will be available starting October 1st, 2007 in the Department of Chemistry at Indiana University, Bloomington, for a recent nuclear science Ph.D. This position is within the Nuclear Chemistry group at the Indiana University Cyclotron Facility (IUCF). The group utilizes intermediate energy heavy-ion reactions to learn about the properties of nuclei and nuclear matter away from stability. Experiments are conducted using accelerators at MSU-NSCL, TAMU, and GANIL (France).
