Project Description: 
The Lammers group is inviting applicants to perform wet laboratory work in support of a project investigating the feasibility of a new technology for large-scale mineral carbon sequestration. Global climate change is linked to anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions, and negative emissions technologies must be developed to avoid catastrophic warming. Our group is developing a novel system to sequester carbon as mineral calcite while producing other valuable inorganic chemical products that can be used for extraction of critical elements.
Undergraduate's Role: 
Job requirements will include assisting with building the benchtop system, performing sampling and sample analysis using various analytical tools including ion chromatography, X-Ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscopy.
Undergraduate's Qualifications: 
Background courses in laboratory chemistry is strongly encouraged, and Water Chemistry (CIVENG 115) and/or Soil Chemistry (CIVENG c116/ESPM c128) or equivalent is also useful but not required (these may also be taken concurrently). Prior wet laboratory experience is encouraged but not required. A strong attention to detail and commitment to producing high quality research for the greater good is required!
