The Division of Science and Mathematics at New York University Abu Dhabi is
inviting applications for several externally funded positions at the Post-
Doctoral Associate level in the broad research areas of analytical
chemistry and petroleum chemistry. While all applicants with analytical
chemistry background will be considered, applications with prior experience in
analytical methods that are of relevance to the petroleum industry, as well as
HPLC method development, ICP-OES and advanced ion chromatography will be given
The Post-Doctoral Associate will work under the supervision of Dr. Panče
Naumov (nyuad.nyu.edu/en/research/faculty-research/naumov-group.html) on the
preparation and characterization of new materials. This full-time position is
dedicated to externally funded applied research as part of an ongoing
collaboration between NYUAD and a local oil company. Key requirements of the
suitable candidate(s) for this position are the timely delivery of
analytical results, the capacity to work as part of a team, and ability to
deliver under the constraints of a strict timeframe. The lab is well-equipped
with state-of-the-art facilities for materials characterization, including
chromatography, spectroscopy, microscopy, and equipment for thermal and
mechanical characterization. The Post-Doctoral Associate will also be provided
access to the well-equipped core research facilities of NYUAD.
The applicants must hold a PhD or equivalent degree in chemistry, physics, or
Priority will be given to candidates with a background in the following
primary and secondary areas of expertise:
(1) Wet chemistry methods/ Time-Resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopy/ High
Resolution Mass Spectrometry/NMR: Supporting methods (e.g. extrography and
accelerated solvent extraction) for the fractionation, detection, analysis of
complex polyaromatic mixtures
(2) Quantification of surface adsorption, particularly by using quartz
crystal microbalance (QCM-D): Quantification of the deposition of
petroliferous materials on different surfaces using quartz crystal
microbalance, chemical and physical characterization of colloids, small-angle
scattering, diffuse scattering.
(3) Inductively coupled plasma - optical emission spectrometry
(ICP-OES ) and ion chromatography (IC ) : Execution of ICP-
OES in organic as well as aqueous phase. Matrix-matching studies to ensure
that meaningful data is generated. Discrimination of different species by IC.
(4) High-Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) : Customization of an
HPLC setup and development of effective HPLC methods using the customized
setup for accurate analysis and quantification of analytes in complex
Applicants are required to indicate at the beginning of their cover letter
their primary and secondary area(s) of expertise from the above list.
