Job Details

The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) of Columbia University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scientists and/or Associate Research Scientists with experience in novel stable isotope geochemistry methods, with a particular focus on, but not limited to, transition metals. The successful candidate(s) will be part of a dynamic group of researchers working on innovative development and application in isotope geochemistry, with a current focus on potassium, nickel, antimony, tungsten and uranium. The NICER (Novel Isotopes in Climate, Environmental and Rock) Lab (NICER Lab (columbia.edu)) and its research group studies a range of problems in large-scale Earth geochemistry, cosmochemistry, isotopic enrichment (e.g. for fusion research), environmental pollution, and biomedicine. These positions will be based at the LDEO campus in Palisades, New York, in the research group of Alex Halliday.

Candidates for the Postdoctoral Research Scientist position(s) must have or be nearing completion of a Ph.D. in isotope geochemistry or cosmochemistry and knowledge of ultra-low blank clean chemical procedures for trace element separation, double spiking, and multiple-collector inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICPMS) is required. Starting salary is $70,000-$70,000.

Candidates for the Associate Research Scientist position must have a Ph.D. in isotope geochemistry or cosmochemistry and at least (1) year of relevant Postdoctoral experience.

Company

Our center has a unique standing at Columbia University.  We are one of only a few centers in the United States actively developing a global climate model to understand past and future climates both on Earth and on other planets.  To do so, we have a special relationship with NASA.  We are co-located with the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in Columbia’s Armstrong Hall. Here, Columbia and NASA scientists work closely together to advance climate science and improve societal resilience to climate-related challenges both in the United States and around the world.  CCSR scientists and staff also work with many other partners – private sector, governmental, and non-governmental organizations – to answer these challenging scientific, social, and economic questions.
