The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is searching for a Post doctoral position to work in the Development Core of the Duke Environmental Analysis Laboratory (DEAL).

Work Performed: We are seeking a highly motivated candidate with a background in the field of environmental chemistry and trace-level analysis of organic contaminants. The successful candidate will work within the DEAL Development Core to develop quantitative methods for the analysis of novel contaminants in various exposure-relevant environmental media (e.g., house dust, drinking water, surface waters), conduct research on novel personal passive sampling devices and advance high-throughput workflows for the identification of non-targeted contaminants. Demonstrated experience in sample preparation, analytical chromatography and instrumental analysis for trace-level quantitation are required. Experience with high-resolution accurate-mass mass spectrometry, chemical informatics for non-targeted analysis and programming experience (e.g., R, python, C) are desirable. Strong organizational and effective communication skills are highly desired.

Education Requirements: Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Environmental Chemistry, Environmental Engineering, Environmental Science or a closely related field.

Salary and benefits will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Certain jobs at Duke University and Duke University Health System may include essential job functions that require specific physical and/or mental abilities. Additional information and provision for requests for reasonable accommodation will be provided by each hiring department.
