Michigan State University, Department of Plant, Soil and Microbial Sciences has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research associate funded by the NIEHS Superfund Research Program. The research associate will investigate dioxin sorption mechanisms by soil components, bioavailability of sorbed dioxins, and have opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborative studies in spectroscopy, soil microbiology, and/or environmental toxicology. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in environmental chemistry, soil chemistry, geochemistry, or related areas. Excellent organic analytical skills for trace levels of persistent organic compounds and mechanism-based research experience are desirable but not required. The position is available immediately or until an appropriate candidate is selected. This project is funded for 2022-2027, and work will be performed in a collaborative atmosphere among Drs.
