Job Description: 

The Center for Urban Waters (Tacoma, WA) invites applications for a post-doctoral scholar position.  The successful candidate will focus on understanding of the fate, transport, and treatment of organic contaminants in the aquatic environment.  We are especially interested in expertise with high resolution mass spectrometry techniques for the identification of novel contaminants and assessment of their fate in receiving waters, treatment systems, and biota.  Familiarity with QTOF, Agilent software, statistical analyses of large data sets, and sample processing are especially valued.  The candidate will support exploratory research, method development, several ongoing projects, and contribute to research proposals.

Qualifications: A Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, or related fields is required.  The following skills are desirable: 1) experience in non-targeted and HRMS analytical methods, particularly Agilent instrumentation, 2) knowledge/expertise of computational methods for data analysis, and 3) the design and implementation of field investigations.  

The anticipated starting date for the position is in July 2017, or soon thereafter.  Applications will be reviewed as received.  The initial appointment will be for one year, with the possibility of extending depending on performance and availability of funds.

To apply, please email a cover letter describing research experience and interests, a CV, and your best peer-reviewed publication.  Materials should be sent to Andrew James (jamesca@uw.edu) and Edward Kolodziej (koloj@uw.edu).
