The Glenn T. Seaborg Institute at Idaho National Laboratory (INL)  is seeking a well-qualified postdoctoral associate in the areas of fundamental and applied radiochemistry and materials science or comparable discipline. You will focus on variations in the coordination chemistry of actinide and lanthanide ions in solution. Studies will delineate the existence of novel f-element coordination with complexing agents using optical absorption, luminescence, and nuclear magnetic resonance. This effort may also include detailed thermodynamic studies of the coordinated complexes.

We seek highly motivated individual with experience in solution chemistry and varied spectroscopic techniques including optical absorption, luminescence, and nuclear magnetic resonance.
