TITLE:  Post-Doctoral Researcher – Environmental Engineering

DEPARTMENT: U.S. Department of Energy

AGENCY:  National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL)

LEVEL:  Post-Doctoral Researcher

POSITION INFORMATION: Temporary, 12 months Full-Time

DUTY LOCATION:  Pittsburgh, PA

WHO MAY BE CONSIDERED:  United States Citizens, LPRs, & Foreign Nationals with appropriate approval

 

HOW TO APPLY:

Applicants should apply through the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) program.  The ORISE Program provides opportunities for undergraduate students, recent graduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty researchers.  NETL utilizes the ORISE program to support research and work within NETL’s Office of Research & Development. 

 

SUMMARY:

Through the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) this posting seeks a post-doctoral researcher who is interested in participating as part of the geologic and environmental sciences focus area research team at NETL. NETL is a multi-disciplinary, scientific and technical-oriented national laboratory. NETL’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) conducts research to evaluate environmental impacts and risk assessments associated with domestic energy resource development.

Methane (CH4) is increasingly becoming a dominant form of global energy, but a portion of the natural CH4 deposits are trapped below the surface in coalbeds that are currently uneconomical to mine.  Methane extraction of these coalbeds may provide a significant global energy source.  The natural microbial consortia within these coalbeds may induce increased coal-to-methane conversion given optimal coalbed conditions, such as nutrient availability.  A thorough characterization of the microbial processes important to coal-to-methane conversion, followed by experimental analysis of nutrient amendments, will result in a strategy to promote coalbed conditions necessary for increased methane production. The gasification team is looking to recruit an individual who is able to perform metagenomic-based studies of coal basin microbial communities, and develop nutrient amendments to promote microbial coal-to-methane conversion.

Applicants for this position must demonstrate knowledge of and have experience with metagenomic sequencing and metagenomic data analysis.  Access to coal industry collaborations and coal basin samples would complement existing partnerships at the NETL-Pittsburgh facility.

Familiarity with biological coal gasification, environmental microbiology of the subsurface, and bioinformatics is preferred.

KEY REQUIREMENTS:

·       Applicants must be U.S. Citizens or approved Foreign Nationals

·       Applicants must have a PhD from an accredited institution in a field appropriate for the applicant’s area of expertise, with an ability to travel to the NETL-Pittsburgh facility to participate in on-site research
