Stellenangebot: PostDocPosition in Experimental Geochemistry, Neutron Scattering, and Geologic Carbon Sequestration at the University of Wyoming

Postdoctoral research in Experimental Geochemistry, Neutron Scattering, and Geologic Carbon Sequestration

At the University of Wyoming, Associate Professor John Kaszuba (Department of Geology and Geophysics) and Assistant Professor Vladimir Alvarado (Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering) seek one postdoctoral research scientist for a new project that will explore fundamental aspects of coupling geochemical reactions and multiphase (CO2-H2O) flow in porous rocks. The successful candidate will combine experimental geochemistry and neutron scattering techniques to address this scientific problem. Candidates with a background in geochemistry are encouraged to apply. Candidates who also possess a background in quantitative geochemical analysis, experimental geochemistry, and/or neutron scattering are especially encouraged to apply. This position is part of an interdisciplinary project that will assess highest-priority geologic formations in Wyoming for CO2 storage. The project is one of several new and ongoing projects at the University of Wyoming that address the science of geologic carbon sequestration. This position requires a willingness to facilitate collaboration between the Departments of Geology & Geophysics and Chemical & Petroleum Engineering at the University of Wyoming.

Candidates who wish to pursue independent research using experimental geochemistry or neutron scattering to study CO2 reactions in serpentine, serpentine minerals and serpentinization may augment this postdoc and are encouraged to apply for the Alexander von Humboldt Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship at the URL given below. Professor B. Ronald Frost, an Alexander von Humboldt Research Award winner in 1992, is an expert on serpentinization and serpentine minerals. He is a co-investigator with Dr. Kaszuba and would host the AvH part of the postdoc.

The position is available beginning January 1, 2010. Up to 3 years of postdoc funding are available. Candidates for this postdoc should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and a list of 3 references to John Kaszuba ( or Dr. John Kaszuba | Department of Geology and Geophysics – University of Wyoming). ). Interested candidates may contact John Kaszuba or Vladimir Alvarado ( or UW Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering Faculty - Vladimir Alvarado). Candidates interested in augmenting this postdoc with a Alexander von Humbolt Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship may contact Ron Frost or Dr. B. Ron Frost | Department of Geology and Geophysics) or John Kaszuba.
