Postdoctoral Associate at HPCAT at the Advanced Photon Source


The Geophysical Laboratory, Carnegie Institution for Science (Carnegie), seeks applications for one postdoctoral associate in the field of high pressure Geoscience at the HPCAT facility at the Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory. The research will focus on structure measurement of silicate glasses at high pressures using a double-stage Paris-Edinburgh press.

The appointment is for one year, with possible extension to two years pending on the progress and availability of funds. The position is available immediately, and will remain open until it is filled.

  • Minimum qualifications: The applicant must have a Ph.D. degree in Geosciences or related fields by the time of the employment. Experience in research using high-pressure tools (large volume press or diamond anvil cell) is required. Successful candidates are expected to be able to work in both independent and collaborative group environments.
  • Desired qualifications: Experience in structure or physical property measurement for glass or liquid is desirable.

Interested parties can submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae (including publications), statement of research interests, and contact information for three references, via the Carnegie website.
