Postdoctoral Research Associate Position in Electroanalytical Chemistry

A postdoctoral position, supported by NASA, is immediately available in the Department of Chemistry at Tufts University, Medford, MA, for an individual with or nearing completion of a Ph.D. in Chemistry.  Priority will be given to individuals with strong research experience in electrochemical analysis, specifically with ion selective electrodes, both theory and application, and especially with an understanding of ionophores and selectivity.  Additional expertise in microfluidics, ion chromatography, chemical oceanography, or geochemistry, would be a plus.  The position will focus on the development and characterization of a microfluidic ISE sensor array (based on the Phoenix Mars lander WCL sensors) capable of measuring inorganic ionic species that would be collected from the plume ejected from the subsurface ocean on Enceladus. For an overview of research and publications of the Kounaves group please see http://planetary.chem.tufts.edu 

Excellent verbal and written communication skills are required. The candidate is expected to be highly creative and self-motivated. This is a full time, 1 year, postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory performance and availability of funds.

Interested and qualified candidates should send a Cover Letter highlighting relevant skills, achievements, and goals, along with information on citizenship and/or U.S. visa status, and a Curriculum Vitae including publications, and contact information for three professional references, as a single pdf file to Prof. Sam Kounaves at samuel.kounaves@tufts.edu. Only applicants selected for an interview will be contacted.
