Postdoctoral Research Associate in Solid-State Nuclear Magnetic ResonanceOhio State University - ,
Job Open: 17-Oct-2011   Job Close: 17-Oct-2012
The Subsurface Energy Materials Characterization and Analysis Laboratory - SEMCAL (Dr. David Cole, co-director; ), in the School of Earth Sciences invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position in NMR for a 2 year appointment to utilize solid-state NMR in the characterization of complex materials systems, specifically the interaction of fluids with mineral substrates (as planar surfaces or nanoporous media). This position will be part of OSU’s Office of Science funded project targeting “Nanopore Confinement of C-H-O Mixed-Volatile Fluids Relevant to Subsurface Energy Systems”. Studies will focus on fundamental and applied aspects of the interaction of C-O-H fluids (aqueous; non-aqueous) with solids (natural; engineered) across a wide range of length and time scales with the goal to reach a predictive level of understanding of fluid-mediated processes in complex earth and technological systems. In addition to NMR facilities at OSU research will take advantage of a close collaboration with a magnetic resonance research team at the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), and travel between OSU and PNNL will be required as necessary. Emphasis is placed on hydrocarbon fluid-solid systems from ambient conditions to elevated temperatures and pressures to understand the nano-scale properties of free and confined fluid-solid interfaces and transport in nano-porous media. Qualifications: Candidate must have a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Sciences, Engineering, Geochemistry or closely related field. Applicants must understand advanced NMR theory and experiments, and be able to apply advanced NMR experiments to characterize complex systems. Programming skills are desirable. The candidate should be able to work independently and participate creatively in refining project directions. The candidate must have good oral and written communication skills, and be able to interact effectively with a broad range of colleagues. Applicants cannot have received their Ph.D. more than six years prior to the date of application appointment or must complete all degree requirements before starting their appointment. Contact: Applicants should send a CV, description of current research activities and interests, and contact information for at least two references to: Prof. David R. Cole, School of Earth Sciences, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH 432210-1398 ( A formal job posting will soon appear in the HR section of the Ohio State University web site.
