Job Description: 

A postdoctoral researcher position is available in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering at the University of Colorado, Boulder. The project, which is funded by the US NSF, targets the speciation, transformation and mobilization of organic carbon and nitrogen from soils after wildfires and the impact on disinfection byproduct formation. The project will build upon ~3 years worth of research concerning the mobilization of carbon and nitrogen after wildfires and the resulting changes in DBP formation potential.

The ideal candidate should have experience in analytical chemistry, including LC and GC, and also some knowledge of NMR and MS. Also, a strong background in environmental chemistry is preferred. Applicants should have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in Environmental Engineering, Chemistry or any other closely related field.

The project will be based in Boulder. The Environmental Engineering group at Boulder just moved to a brand new facility, including new lab and renovated office space, and the successful candidate will have access to all necessary equipment.

Applications, including a CV, 1 page summary of research interests and career goals and contact information for three references, should be sent to Fernando Rosario-Ortiz ( The initial appointment will be for one year, with the option to be extended to two years based on performance.
