Technician Position in Ecosystems Ecology Laboratory
Institute of Arctic Biology, University of Alaska Fairbanks

A technician position is available in ecosystem ecology/biogeochemistry at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. We seek a motivated individual with strong problem-solving skills, experience with analytical chemistry, demonstrated skill in both effectively leading and collaborating with groups, interest in ecosystem ecology, and ability to contribute to field sampling in the arctic and sub-arctic. The technician's primary role will be to contribute to chemical analyses, including assisting with installation and maintenance of equipment, training students, performing analyses, and troubleshooting. Specific analyses include colorimetry, ion chromatography, dissolved carbon, trace gas, elemental, and isotopic analysis of soil and water samples. Experience with any or all of these techniques is desired. Opportunities will arise to assist with field work near Fairbanks and at the Toolik Lake Field Station, requiring travel. Current projects in the lab address effects of permafrost thaw on watershed, stream, and soil biogeochemistry. At least one year of college-level coursework in natural science (e.g., ecology, biology, chemistry, environmental science, hydrology) with demonstrated experience in analytical chemistry is required. Preferred qualifications include a bachelor's degree in natural science, and research experience in an ecological or environmental science laboratory. Submit application materials via www.uakjobs.com, posting 0066150. Contact Tamara Harms (tkharms at alaska.edu) with questions. The initial appointment is for one year, with continuation dependent upon funding and performance.
