Job Rank: 
Post-doctoral research associate
Job Institution: 
Arizona State University
Job Description: 

A position is available immediately for a postdoctoral research associate to work on one of two themes in my laboratory. Theme I – environmental nanotechnology requires expertise in electron microscopy of environmental samples and an interest in understanding exposure analysis in real systems. Expertise in nanomaterial analysis or synthesis is highly desirable. Theme II – organic matter (bulk and trace organics) in water treatment serves as both disinfectant by-product precursors. Characterizing these organics in waters facing impacts from climate variablity and developing novel treatment systems to remove organics in drinking water systems will be the focus for Theme II. Expertise in NOM isolation, characterization, and treatment is highly desirable. A record of high quality publications and competent writing skills are required. Applicants should send curriculum vitae, a 1-2 page statement of career goals, research experience and interest, and contact information of three references to Paul Westerhoff (p.westerhoff@asu.edu) at the School of Sustainable Engineering and The Built Environment. The position is available immediately.
