The Earth and Environmental Sciences
Division of Los Alamos National Laboratory is seeking applicants to
compete in the Laboratory’s prestigious Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.
We are interested in sponsoring candidates in all areas of light stable
isotope mass spectrometry. The Division has just ordered a new
Micromass CF-IRMS with an automated system for analysis of waters,
carbonates and DIC. In addition the system will be coupled to elemental
analyzers for combustion and pyrolysis of liquids and solids, will have
compound specific capability (GC combustion and pyrolysis), and will have
a pre-concentration and purification device for trace gases.
Candidates with background in biogeochemical studies utilizing GC-IRMS
are especially encouraged to apply. Research interests in carbon
sequestration, the water cycle, and global change would be particularly
Applicants must have exceptional academic and publication records to
compete for one of the limited number of Postdoctoral Fellow appointments
awarded quarterly. Successful candidates selected for Postdoctoral
Fellowships pursue research of their own choosing and can take advantage
of complete, state-of-the-art laboratory and computing facilities. They
also have opportunities to become involved with existing and newly
evolving projects and programs, and there are ample opportunities to
collaborate with other Laboratory divisions.
Los Alamos National Laboratory employs over 10,000 people in a wide range
of scientific disciplines. The Earth and Environmental Sciences Division
employs about 300 people on projects that focus Earth science expertise
on issues of national importance, including environmental and energy
research. The Laboratory is well equipped for studies of Earth materials
and has outstanding computing facilities.
A Ph.D. completed within the last five years or soon to be completed is
required. Candidates may compete for a Director's Fellowship and may be
considered for the prestigious J. Robert Oppenheimer, Richard P. Feynman
or Frederick Reines Fellowships. Further details about the Postdoctoral
Program may be found at:
