U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s

Office of Research and Development (ORD)/National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL)

Postdoctoral Research Positions (2)
(Posted 8/30/2018)

This lab conducts research on the bioavailability of lead, arsenic and other toxic metals, primarily in soils and dusts, and how use of bioavailability data can improve the accuracy of human health risk assessments and inform better remediation at contaminated sites. We are particularly interested in candidates with experience in ICP-MS, IC/HPLC-ICP-MS, and/or X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XANES/EXAFS), although participants will have training opportunities in these areas to expand their capabilities. Links to a few recent publications that have come out of our lab are provided below should someone like to get a better idea of the research we conduct.
