The job description would include the following tasks:
1) Utilize our lab built apparatus called the GPEC (Gas Pressurized Extraction Chromatography) to perform quantitative separations.
2) Quantitatively analyze separated samples using a Q-ICP-MS.
3) Quantitatively analyze samples using radiochemical counting techniques, such as, LSC (Liquid Scintillation Counting).
Specifically we would like the student to help us:
1) Perform separations on important fission products, such as isolating Lanthanum, Praseodymium, Cerium, Neodymium, and Samarium from one another in a complex nuclear fuel matrix.
