Two Postdoctoral Positions: 1) Environmental Effects of Shale-Gas Extraction and 2) Groundwater Chemistry and Geosequestration of CO2
The Center on Global Change and Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University seek two earth system scientists in biogeochemistry, hydrology, geology, or environmental engineering to 1) examine the environmental effects of shale-gas production in the Marcellus Shale and elsewhere, including measurements of groundwater and air quality, and 2) prioritize the potential risks of CO2 leakage from underground storage reservoirs to shallow drinking-water aquifers using field and laboratory research and modeling. Funded by DOE and other sources, the projects expand ongoing work in the Earth and Ocean Sciences Division of the Nicholas School. For sample publications on the projects, see Osborn, SG et al. 2011 PNAS 108:8172-8176 and Little and Jackson 2010 Environ Sc & Tech 44: 9225-9232.
