Hi All,

We have an immediate opening for a postdoctoral position with the University of Connecticut’s Department of Marine Science to study the fate of nitrogen-bearing trace organics in coastal marine systems. The multi-disciplinary, multi-year project involves the use of isotopic tracers in mesocosms and field studies. It includes elements of isolation, quantification, and stable isotopic characterization of various compounds in water, sediments, and biota. The postdoc will be expected to contribute to experimental design, method development, and serve as the analytical coordinator for the project. Experience in any of the following: HPLC, GC-MS and IRMS is preferred.   A strong background in any of the fields of organic chemistry/geochemistry, natural products isolation/identification, or environmental organic contaminant chemistry would be appropriate for this position.  The successful candidate will work alongside organic chemists, ecosystems ecologists, and isotope biogeochemists in the Department of Marine Science, located on Long Island Sound, using the Department’s new analytical and Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer (IRMS) labs. 


Please contact Dr. Penny Vlahos ([log in to unmask]) or Dr. Craig Tobias ([log in to unmask]) with a C.V. and letter of interest.  We intend to fill this position on a fairly short time line
