Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s (LBNL) Energy Geosciences Division has an immediate opening for a Geochemical Modeling Postdoctoral Scholar to join the team. 


We are looking for a postdoctoral scholar with expertise in multicomponent reactive transport and geochemical modeling and with a solid background in inorganic aqueous geochemistry. In this role, you will work on applying multicomponent reactive transport modeling to problems related to weathering fluxes, and/or contaminant fate and transport. You will work with a highly skilled interdisciplinary team. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is a renowned center of scientific expertise in many facets of the earth system and climate-related fundamental and applied science.

 

What You Will Do:

  • Develop and apply hydrological and reactive transport models to improve process understanding at the hillslope scale.

  • Aggregate and integrate diverse data into numerical models to identify the underlying processes.

  • Predict fluxes from the hillslopes as a function of various forcings (climate, vegetation).

  • Engage as a member of a large, multidisciplinary research team that includes geochemists, hydrologists, and computational scientists.

  • Author peer-reviewed journal articles and technical reports.

  • Interpretation of various geochemical and hydrological data sets, including analysis of laboratory and field experiments, as well as evaluation of thermodynamic data.

 

Additional Responsibilities as needed:

  • Experience in developing and applying computational software for reactive transport and/or flow modeling.

 

What Is Required:

  • Ph.D. in geochemistry, civil or environmental engineering, earth sciences, or hydrology, or equivalent discipline.

  • Substantial knowledge and experience in the application of reactive transport models.

  • Substantial knowledge and experience in modeling microbially-mediated biogeochemical reaction networks coupled to flow and transport.

  • Ability to identify and develop new research areas and proposals.

  • Ability to collaborate with a multidisciplinary team of scientists.

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills and a proven track record of publishing in high-impact journals are also required.

 

Additional Desired Qualifications:

  • International research exposure.

  

The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.

 

Notes: 

  • This is a full time, 2 years, postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs. You must have less than 3 years paid postdoctoral experience. Salary for Postdoctoral positions depends on years of experience post-degree.

  • Full-time, M-F, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.

  • This position is represented by a union for collective bargaining purposes.

  • Salary will be predetermined based on postdoctoral step rates.

  • This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.

  • Work will be primarily performed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.
