We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow/research associate for
a two-year appointment. The candidate will be part of the
Integrated Atmospheric Deposition Network (IADN) team but will also

broader goal of advancing the understanding of PFAS fate and
transport in the Great Lakes region and beyond. The candidate will
also contribute to expanding the research directions of the group
by including new target chemicals, exploring new media for
environmental monitoring, or exploring new research questions
(i.e., chemical approaches to microplastics).

environmental or analytical chemistry or environmental engineering
at time of appointment. A Master’s degree in similar areas will be
considered for a candidate with adequate experience. The successful

spectrometry, in the analysis of persistent organic pollutants, and
in data analysis is desired.
