Open Staff Position (Separation Science)

The Separation Science group in the Chemical Science & Engineering Division of Argonne National Laboratory solicits applicants for a basic-research staff position in the area of chemical separations.

The new staff member will join a vibrant team that is focused on developing a fundamental understanding of the physical and chemical factors enabling optimal separations, with a focus on f-elements. Within this group environment, the successful applicant will be expected to develop a robust research program, complementary to ongoing efforts in liquid-liquid, adsorption or membrane related separations and will be expected to contribute to the planning, sourcing, and development of new initiatives and ongoing research activities.

We expect you to have:

  • Experience in chemical separations is a basic requirement, as demonstrated by a working knowledge of laboratory-based analytical techniques relevant to the characterization of separations processes.
  • Familiarity with molecular and coarse-grain computational methodologies as used to describe separations model systems is highly desirable.
  • Knowledge about the use of synchrotron-based structural techniques, f-element chemistry, optical spectroscopy and/or NMR within the context of machine-learning approaches would be an advantage.
  • A Ph.D. with knowledge and expertise in chemistry, physics or related field and is expected to possess excellent oral and written communication skills.

The successful candidate will join a group of staff with diverse backgrounds in inorganic and physical chemistry, separations sciences, and condensed matter physics. There will be an opportunity to work with advanced instrumentation and computational facilities available at Argonne National Laboratory.  Although this is designed as an entry level position, senior-level researchers will be considered.
