Geochemical behavior of radium in wetland impacted by former uranium mining activities: mineralogical characterizations and leaching experiments

The Department of Radioactive Waste Management (Dr Arnaud MANGERET) at the French Institute of Radioprotection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN) is offering a postdoctoral position in environmental geochemistry to work in a team of analytical chemists and geochemists towards the geochemical behavior of radium in a wetland impacted by former uranium mining activities. The department develops research project regarding the migration of radionuclides and metals downstream from nuclear legacy sites.

They are looking for a inquisitive and creative student with a PhD in analytical chemistry or environmental geochemistry. The candidate should have extensive experience with mass spectrometry especially ICP-MS and if possible nano-SIMS techniques. She/he should have an interest in understanding geochemical processes in environmental systems such as wetlands. Ideally, the candidate has also experience in radiochemistry, geochemistry and a good knowledge about microscopic technologies.

The position is available immediately and is limited to 18 months. This project is funded by the European consortium Radornorm (
