********************
R&D - PhD (Analytical Chemistry) Scientist-RND00001874. Proctor & Gamble's Global Analytical Organization has an opening for an Analytical Research Scientist with fundamentally strong elemental analysis background and deep technical expertise in a variety of elemental analysis techniques and sample preparation/handling procedures. The successful candidate will assume responsibility for operation of the High-End Elemental Analysis laboratory located in one of P&G's Innovation Centers located in Cincinnati, OH. This critical capability provides a wide variety of trace-level elemental characterization information that is vital for: guiding progression of R&D programs; troubleshooting manufacturing plant and formulation issues; qualifying raw materials; understanding composition and function of competitor products; and addressing consumer-complaint issues.  In addition, the highly specialized Elemental Analysis tools are leveraged for support of upstream innovation, spanning materials interactions, surface understanding, formulation development and safety innovation. This laboratory's primary business alignment is with P&G's Fabric & Home Care Global Business Unit and with the P&G Chemicals business.  However, cross-business unit collaborations (particularly with Beauty, Paper, Duracell and Gillette business) are expected to grow. P&G is a fast-paced, highly collaborative environment that demands strong leadership, communication, and collaboration skills to successfully deliver business results. Qualifications - The successful candidate will: Partner effectively with multi-functional, multi-disciplinary teams (Analytical, business unit project teams, and R&D Transformative Platform Technology groups, Safety and Regulatory groups, etc) to define elemental analysis needs, plan and execute experiments, and deliver results; Hands-on utilization of EA techniques, such as Inductively-Couples Plasma (ICP)-Optical Emission Spectroscopy, ICP-Mass Spectroscopy (MS), Laser-Ablation-ICP-MS, X-Ray Florescence, and wet chemistry sample preparation, including microwave digestion; Guide project direction through new technical insights and recommendations; Provide technical coaching to others, including supervision of contractors, review contractor generated data, interpretation, and reporting; Keep on the fore-front of elemental analysis capabilities and identify, develop, and deploy novel capabilities within P&G's technical community; Work with the Elemental Analysis Capability community and contribute to building a vision and strategies for this community, share technical knowledge, and  manage work flow as needed. The successful candidate must have a Doctoral degree demonstrating in-depth knowledge of Elemental Analysis. A minimum of five years of practical experience in the use of high-end elemental analysis instrumentation is required. Mastery of ICP-OES and ICP-MS is required, while LA-ICP-MS, XRF (particularly Bruker SRS3000), and CHNS analysis is highly desirable. Other requirements include a strong track record of analytical problem solving and instrument troubleshooting skills; research and method development experience in metal analyses, speciation, and mechanistic understanding; strong leadership, collaboration and communication skills; project management skills, including ability to set priorities, develop work plans and deliver against timelines.

Multiple Research Faculty Positions in Sustainable Energy, University of Notre Dame. As part of a campus-wide Sustainable Energy Initiative (SEI), the University of Notre Dame seeks applicants for four Research Assistant Professor positions. These faculty positions will have dual roles of supporting new core experimental and computational facilities and developing research programs either independently or in collaboration with other Notre Dame SEI faculty. The SEI strategy involves the Colleges of Engineering and Science as well as the Notre Dame Radiation Laboratory to make advances in key energy research focus areas of Safer Nuclear, Cleaner Fossil, and Transformative Solar. The first position is associated with the Materials Characterization Facility and will require developing a research program in materials synthesis and characterization, especially as applied to molecular and heterogeneous catalysis, separations, or photochemical energy conversion and storage. The second position is for a Research Assistant Professor in Chemical Simulations for Energy. This individual will be associated with a new SEI computational facility and will bring experience in and enthusiasm for the development and application of classical and/or first-principles chemical simulations tools for energy-related applications. The third position is associated with the Actinide Materials Characterization Facility. The ideal candidate will have experience in actinide solution/speciation chemistry and the characterization of actinide coordination environments in solution. The fourth position is for a Research Assistant Professor to oversee both the Cleaner Fossil and Transformative Solar laboratories, as well as to develop a research program in one or both of these areas. The cleaner fossil laboratory focuses on gasification and subsequent gas separation technologies, while the solar laboratory will require experience with photochemical and other analytical techniques. More details about each of the positions can be found at http://www.nd.edu/~ndenergy/faculty-and-personnel/descriptions.shtml. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, detailed research plans, and arrange for at least three letters of recommendation. Applications will be reviewed beginning in July and on a continuing basis until the positions are filled.
