Hi Ecologgers,

I am seeking a lab manager for a one-year lab manager position. Please see
the description below.

Within the Department of Geography, the Environmental Systems Dynamics
Laboratory quantitatively studies the ways in which physical, biological,
and human components of the environment are linked to understand how
critical ecosystems and the functions that they perform may change over
time. Water flows as a theme through this research as one of the components
of the environment most critical to life and indeed, perhaps the single
most dominant factor sculpting the geography of Earth's natural and human
The candidate would be providing laboratory support for ongoing projects in
the ESDL. This entails ensuring that laboratory and field instrumentation
are running smoothly, performing sample analysis, preparing reagents, and
assisting with the setup of a new laboratory flume for studies of sediment
transport in vegetation canopies. Limited field work will likely also be

Projects that the candidate will be involved in focus on understanding the
mechanisms and environmental impact of organic material transport in
particulate and dissolved form using approaches from organic geochemistry
and environmental fluid mechanics. More information about the Environmental
Systems Dynamics Laboratory is available at www.esdlberkeley.com. The
successful candidate should work well in diverse teams, as she/he would be
working closely with other laboratory personnel, including undergraduate
and graduate students and postdocs.

Key Responsibilities :

=E2=80=A2 Running and maintaining laboratory instrumentation, including a
fluorometer, dissolved organic carbon analyzer, and particle size analyzer
=E2=80=A2 Assisting with planning and characterization of a new water flume=
constructed to perform experiments on sediment transport in biologically
active environments
=E2=80=A2 Preparing solutions and reagents
=E2=80=A2 Participating in and providing support for field projects
=E2=80=A2 As need and interests dictate, potentially performing routine dat=
analysis in support of ongoing field projects
Required Qualifications
=E2=80=A2 Experience preparing laboratory reagents
=E2=80=A2 Experience in troubleshooting instrumentation
=E2=80=A2 Experience with physical laboratory experiments
=E2=80=A2 Familiarity with spreadsheet software such as Excel
=E2=80=A2 Bachelor=E2=80=99s degree in chemistry, engineering, or one of th=
e physical or
environmental sciences (or equivalent years of experience)

Preferred Qualifications
