Electron Microprobe Operator (TEES ASSOCIATE RESEARCH SCIENTIST): this individual will be a staff scientist in the Materials Characterization Facility, which is a campus wide user facility at Texas A&M University that supports the research activities of the more than 87 PIs and hundreds of students, with a focus on surface and interfacial spectroscopies and optical, electron, ion and scanning probe microscopies.
The successful candidate will operate and/or supervise the operation of a new electron microprobe (Cameca SX-5 with 5 spectrometers and EDS), including scheduling and billing for services, performing routine maintenance, and making sure that supplies are ordered. Additional responsibilities include: (1) Instructing users in the operation and theory of the microprobe both on an individual basis, as required, and by teaching an annual workshop or course (Electron Microprobe Analysis); (2) Aid in the interpretation of the results when requested; (3) Conducting research using the electron microprobe, usually in conjunction with faculty members at TAMU, but potentially with other institutions and industry, and co-author the results; (4) Instruct microprobe researchers in the use of computer software on other platforms in order to facilitate and/or extend the interpretation of quantitative, qualitative, and digital imaging data sets acquired on the electron microprobe, and (5) Develop improved procedures for the acquisition and the processing of data from the microprobe, including: where feasible, modifying instrument software in minor ways to improve its performance for specialized tasks; remaining informed of new programs useful in the processing of microprobe data, and making microprobe users aware of these programs as pertinent to their research. An individual with this title WILL be eligible to serve as a Principal Investigator (PI).
Candidates should have a PhD in Materials Science, Engineering, Geology, Geophysics, or a related area with significant expertise (minimum 3 years) in the operation of an electron microprobe and the interpretation of electron microprobe data.
