Dear Colleagues,

Please pass along to anyone that might be intersted.

Stable Isotope Specialist Position at the University of Cincinnati:

The Department of Geology at the University of Cincinnati seeks to hire a full-time stable isotope specialist for a 15-month contract beginning June 1, 2013 to assume IRMS management of the new NSF funded University of Cincinnati Stable Isotope Facility. This facility will be a crucial resource for four primary investigators, their ~15 graduate and undergraduate students, and users from other departments and universities within the region. The Department of Geology has major focuses in paleontology (nationally ranked #6 in 2010), biogeochemistry and global change, and Quaternary geology (see the Quaternary and Anthropocene Research Group, www.uc.edu/orgs/qarg.html<http://www.uc.edu/orgs/qarg.html>), and environmental geology. This exciting position offers the opportunity to support research in the areas of geology, geography, ecology, biological anthropology, and oceanography, with a focus on both modern and geologic timescales.

The successful candidate will support the operation of a Thermo V Advantage and associated peripheral devices including gas chromatography-combustion/pyrolysis (Trace GC Ultra and Isolink), GasBench, Precon, and EA. The stable isotope specialist will be responsible for instrument calibration for day-to-day analyses, instrumentation and peripheral device optimization, management of standards (QC/QA), managing supplies and consumables, and the scheduling of users. Desirable skills include: expertise in stable isotope analysis; knowledge of routine maintenance; advanced troubleshooting of IRMS equipment; and expertise in laboratory data management; and an ability to build and maintain effective working relationships with the facility users.

Desired qualifications include a M.S. degree in geology, geochemistry, chemistry or other related field or a B.S. degree with 2 or more years of experience. Highly desirable experience would include direct experience with stable isotope techniques, analytical troubleshooting and a familiarity with gas-chromatography systems.

Applications must be submitted online: www.jobsatuc.com/applicants/Central?quickFind=85116<http://www.jobsatuc.com/applicants/Central?quickFind=85116> . Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
