Two-year Post Doctoral Position in Low Temperature Geochemistry

The Department of Geology at Kansas State University invites applications for a post-doctoral  position for up to two years beginning in August 2018. The successful candidate’s research will emphasize Low temperature aqueous geochemistry. Anticipated areas of specialization could include at least one of the following:   Application   of   Stable   Isotope   Systematics   in Hydrochemistry, Rare   Earth   Element Geochemistry in Groundwater Flow Systems, Use of inorganic and organic tracers to better understand provenance of groundwater solvent and solute sources and processes, Environmental Geochemistry, Contaminant Hydrology, Groundwater Contaminant Geochemistry, and Critical Zone Geochemistry. Research that interfaces with the broad area of biogeochemistry and chemical hydrogeology is highly desirable.  Along  with  postdoctoral  research  this  position  also  requires  teaching  2  sections  of Introductory Geology course per semester. A detailed advertisement for the position is located here.  Screening of applications begins Feb 1, 2018 and continues until the position is filled.
