VIEW JOBS 8/9/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-11-07T00:00 An interdisciplinary team of civil, environmental, and materials science engineers seeks applications for a postdoctoral research associate to lead a newly funded research initiative exploring the chemical and mechanical properties of pseudowollastonite (PWOL) based cements. PWOL cements have significantly improved mechanical properties and chemical stability relative to ordinary Portland cement and can be synthesized with much lower environmental impacts. An interdisciplinary team comprised of Andres Clarens (Engineering Systems and Environment), Elizabeth Opila (Materials Sciences), and Rouzbeh Shahsavari (C-Crete Technologies) are working to collect performance data, model the behavior, and optimize the design of these materials. We seek colleagues who will contribute technical expertise, as well as their own research interests, to a dynamic team of leading researchers working in the carbon negative cements space. QUALIFCATION REQUIRMENTS: A PhD in a related field is required by the start date. While the ideal candidate must have technical skills in cementitious material characterization, experience with high pressure CO2 chemistry and/or systems sustainability analysis is also desirable. Ultimately, the postdoc will conduct interdisciplinary research between the PIs and complement our existing strengths. APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Apply online at https://uva.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/UVAJobs and attach a curriculum vitae, cover letter describing interest and qualifications related to the position, statement of research interests and experience within the broad area of integrated modeling (two-page single-spaced, and a list of three references including complete names, addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses. APPLICATION DEADLINE: Review of applications will begin on July 1, 2019, but the position will remain open until filled. This is a one-year appointment; however, appointment may be renewed for additional two, one-year increments, contingent upon available funding and satisfactory performance. For questions about the position, please contact Andres Clarens, Associate Professor, at andres@virginia.edu For questions about the application process, please contact Rich Haverstrom, Faculty Search Advisor, at rkh6j@virginia.edu .
