Open Postdoc Position [Metal-sulfur (Geo)chemistry]
The NanoGeoBio Laboratory in the School of Molecular Sciences, Arizona
State University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scholar
to pursue projects on metal sulfide systems, including their formation
mechanisms, crystal structure, and potential electron transfer between
different metal species. While candidates with solid background in
geochemistry, mineralogy, or geomicrobiology are most desirable, those with
background in materials science and inorganic chemistry are also highly
Initial appointment will be made for a fiscal year (12-month), full-time,
renewal for up to three years. The position is currently open, and will
remain open until filled.
The hired candidate is expected to adhere to laboratory culture and safety,

Arizona State University is a new model for American higher education, an
unprecedented combination of academic excellence, entrepreneurial energy
and broad access. This New American University is a single, unified
institution comprising four differentiated campuses positively impacting
the economic, social, cultural and environmental health of the communities
it serves. Its research is inspired by real world application blurring the
boundaries that traditionally separate academic disciplines.
ASU serves more than 80,000 students in metropolitan Phoenix, Arizona, the
nation's fifth largest city. ASU champions intellectual and cultural
diversity, and it welcomes students from all fifty states and more than one
hundred nations across the globe. At ASU, our belief that a solution can be
created for every problem is why we’ve been ranked No. 1 in the US for
innovation, and why we repeatedly rank No. 1 in areas that matter such as
sustainability and global impact.
The College values our cultural and intellectual diversity, and continually
strives to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment. We are especially
interested in applicants who can strengthen the diversity of the academic
community. Learn more about what The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
