Leonard J. Scinto, Ph.D.
Associate Professor
Department of Earth and Environment and
Southeast Environmental Research Center.
Florida International University
11200 SW 8th Street, Miami FL 33199
Office: 305-348-1965

Florida International University's Southeast Environmental Research Center 
(SERC) is seeking to fill two post-doctoral researcher positions in the area of 
analytical environmental chemistry, aquatic chemistry and/or biogeochemistry.

The primary objective of the post-doctoral researchers will be to oversee the 
operations of the CREST-Center for Aquatic Chemistry and Environment (CAChE) 
analytical facility, supervise the technical staff conducting routine analysis, 
develop new analytical methods and contribute to the training of graduate and 
undergraduate students in traditional and novel analytical techniques for 
environmental applications. The appointment is for one year but renewable based 
on performance and grant funds availability.

The NSF-funded CREST program at Florida International University, the Center 
for Aquatic Chemistry and Environment (CAChE) promotes interdisciplinary 
research among faculty from multiple departments, such as Biology, Chemistry, 
Earth & Environment, Public Health, and Computer Sciences.  The research focus 
of CREST CAChE is to address the sources, transport, transformation and 
ecosystem responses to contaminants, excess nutrients, pollutants and other 
natural stressors, under changing land-use and environmental conditions. The 
proposed work will be performed across three landscape transects which are 
characteristic of the interwoven systems of South Florida: natural, 
agricultural, and human/urban.

CREST CAChE will specifically research the Subprojects listed below.

*       Advanced sensing of environmental exposure to anthropogenic 
contaminants, excess nutrients, pollutants and other natural stressors

*       Quantifying fate and transport of contaminants across three 
landscape/system transects

*       Data analytics, interpretation and visualization to assess the effects 
on South Florida's aquatic ecosystems and convey findings to policy- and 

*       Discipline based education research.

The CREST CAChE analytical facility conducts a number of traditional chemical 
analysis under NELAC accreditation including nutrients, bulk chemical 
composition (C, N, P), total and dissolved organic carbon, and pigments. 
Enhanced instrumentation is in place or being installed for the development of 
additional capabilities in support of research and education (Ion 
chromatography, Liquid chromatography (PDA), Fluorescence Spectroscopy, ICP/MS, 
microscopy GC/MS and LC/MS). The post-doctoral associates will lead method 
development, implementation, training and data analysis and reporting for new 
techniques required in support of the research program and newly created 
center. Workload for this position may require travel between FIU campuses and 
across the South Florida landscape including the Greater Everglades Ecosystem.  
The department of Chemistry and Biochemistry also operates the Advanced Mass 
Spectrometry Facility 
 and collaborative work among the CREST Cache participants, the post-doctoral 
researcher and the facility is expected.

To apply, please send a cover letter, CV and the names of three references to 
gardi...@fiu.edu<mailto:gardi...@fiu.edu>.   For more information, please email 
Dr. Piero Gardinali at gardi...@fiu.edu<mailto:gardi...@fiu.edu>.

Salary range $47,000 - 50,000.

Starting date October 1st, 2016.

FIU is a Carnegie engaged public research university, classified as R1 highest 
research activity, and offers more than 180 bachelors, masters and doctoral 
programs. FIU is the largest majority minority RI institution in the US, with a 
student population of over 50,000. FIU is a vibrant, student-centered public 
research university, ideally located in Miami, that is worlds ahead in its 
commitment to learning, research, entrepreneurship, innovation, and creativity 
so that our graduates are prepared to succeed in a global market. CREST CAChE 
is a joint venture between FIU's Institute for Water and 
 (InWE.fiu.edu) and the STEM Transformation
