The Torres laboratory is looking for a postdoctoral research associate to start in the Fall of 2020. The ideal candidate will spearhead collaborative research leading to the publication of peer-reviewed journal articles, assist with the writing of funding proposals, and contribute to graduate student training. Potential research topics include floodplain hydrochemistry and sedimentology, clay mineral cycling, and the application of Time-of-Flight SIMS to the study of organic matter-mineral interactions. These, or other topics of mutual interest, can be approached using field work, laboratory experiments, numerical modeling, and/or meta-analysis. It is expected that applicants have some of the requisite expertise to complete their postdoctoral research (e.g., proficiency in analytical geochemistry, remote sensing, or computer modeling), but may develop new skill sets as part of their tenure.
This position will initially be for one year, but is renewable for an additional year pending satisfactory performance. To apply, please send a current C.V. and a 1-page statement describing your research interests and accomplishments.
For additional details, please see the Torres group website and/or send an email to Mark.Torres@rice.edu.
