[ES_JOBS_NET] Please post: Stable Isotope Lab Position UC Riverside

The Department of Earth Sciences at the
University of California, Riverside invites applications for a
career-level Academic Coordinator position in the Stable Isotope
Laboratory. The candidate will be responsible for the operation and
maintenance of the facility. We have three ThermoFisher Delta V Plus
mass spectrometers with multiple types of peripheral devices (e.g.,
Costech Elemental analyzer, GasBench II, TC-EA, GC-Isolink, and Kiel
device), which are operated by faculty, postdocs, students, and lab
assistants. The Academic Coordinator will be responsible for scheduling
instrument time, training faculty, visitors, postdocs, and graduate and
undergraduate students on sample preparation and analysis. She/he will
develop quality control standards and implement protocols for pre- and
post-analysis of samples and data.

The successful candidate will be responsible for troubleshooting
peripheral devices and mass spectrometers, as well as fixing simple
problems or coordinating necessary service calls. Experience with gas
chromatography, quadrupole mass spectroscopy, and organic analysis, as
well as some experience with carbonates (e.g., Kiel device and GasBench
II) is desirable. A willingness to learn and develop new methods and
techniques, as well as maintain well-developed ones, is considered a
plus for this position. The candidate will be expected to interact
closely with faculty and will have the opportunity for engaging in
research projects.

Required: M.S. Degree in field related to stable isotope analyses

Strongly Preferred: Ph.D., or equivalent laboratory experience in stable isotope geochemistry.

The position is anticipated to be 2 years in length at first, with
potential for reappointment. Applicants are required to provide a cover
letter, curriculum vitae, statement of contributions to diversity, and
contact information for three to five references. All materials should
be submitted through AP Recruit online at: http://ift.tt/2t1paov. Review of applications will begin on August 1, 2017. Position is open until filled.
