Position: Scientist
Institution: Paul Scherrer Institut
Location: Villigen, Aargau, Switzerland
Duties: Planning and conducting laboratory and field work on reactive transport processes (sorption, diffusion, precipitation, solid solution formation) relevant to underground repository systems and collaborating with the modelling team on interpretation of data and designing of experiments; Initiating and conducting field-scale experiments with partners of the Mont Terri Underground Research Laboratory (MT-URL); Playing an active role as PSI representative in the MT-URL; Participation in projects relevant to the long-term evolution of waste repositories for radioactive waste, contaminant transport and geo-engineering; Acquisition of project funding
Requirements: We are looking for a team player able to bridge reactive transport experiments, field studies (e.g. Mont Terri URL) and modelling activities conducted in the Laboratory for Waste Management. Previous involvement in international research projects in underground field laboratories devoted to waste disposal, CCS or geothermal energy is of advantage. The candidate should have a good understanding of geochemical thermodynamics and transport phenomena in argillaceous rocks and porous media in general. The successful candidate will have a PhD degree in Natural Sciences, Geochemistry or Geology. Excellent knowledge of English is required and knowledge of German is beneficial

We perform cutting-edge research in the fields of matter and materials, energy and environment and human health. By performing fundamental and applied research, we work on sustainable solutions for major challenges facing society, science and economy. PSI is committed to the training of future generations. Therefore, about one quarter of our staff are post-docs, post-graduates or apprentices. Altogether, PSI employs 2100 people. The Laboratory for Waste Management (LES) is the Swiss competence centre for geochemistry and multiscale contaminant transport in deep geological disposal systems. LES is conducting comprehensive research and development (R&D) studies in support of Swiss radioactive waste disposal options. The laboratory performs multidisciplinary research on various aspects of radionuclide geochemistry and transport in temporally evolving disposal systems based on experimental studies, development of theoretical models and numerical simulations. The research projects strategically benefit from the physical proximity to unique experimental infrastructure available at PSI such as HOT-laboratories, synchrotron facilities and spallation neutron source for material characterization and imaging.
