HBCU/MSI Internship

We are looking for an undergraduate student in Chemistry.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.
2) Develop a separation technique for Iron and Nickel and compare results to other well-characterized methods.  
3) Quantify the separations as they occur using our hyphenated system.
4) Develop new separation procedures based on the results, for instance changing various parameters (e.g. changing acid concentration, flow rates, etc.) during the process to improve the overall separation.
If this is something that interests you please contact Terrence Buck at  

All the best,
Antonio Gambra
