The Biogeochemical Laboratory in the Department of Marine, Earth, and
Atmospheric Sciences (MEAS) at North Carolina State University seeks a
full-time laboratory manager. The laboratory operates one Thermo Delta V
Plus stable isotope ratio mass spectrometer (IRMS) with peripheral
instruments (elemental analyzer, total organic carbon analyzer, gas
chromatograph) and will soon expand with the acquisition of a second IRMS
with additional peripheral instruments. Current funded projects that will
utilize this instrumentation include studies of carbon isotopes in
dissolved and particulate organic matter in a variety of aquatic
ecosystems, including surface waters of lakes, river, estuaries and
seawater, and sedimentary pore waters. Other projects involve measurement
of organic nitrogen in coastal waters and dissolved inorganic carbon
dynamics in lakes and coastal waters. It is anticipated that this position
will catalyze the ability of the laboratory to engage in other
collaborative and contract work.

The laboratory manager will be responsible for 1) the operation of the IRMS
instruments and their peripherals, 2) training and overseeing students and
postdocs to prepare samples and operate the instruments, 3) maintenance and
minor repairs of instruments and associated equipment, 4) invoicing and
ordering, 5) ensuring data quality, and 6) ensuring the lab conforms to all
health and safety regulations.  The successful applicant must be able to
collaborate in the generation of external research funding, lead training
of laboratory users, and demonstrate laboratory management, communication
and organizational skills. This position does not involve independent
research projects. Limited travel may be required.

Salary will be commensurate with experience. Preference will be given to
candidates with a Bachelor’s degree in the earth or marine sciences or
closely related field and strong preference will be given toward candidates
with a graduate degree in the geosciences or chemistry. *Applicants must
have experience in the operation and maintenance of stable isotope
instruments and peripherals.*  This position is time-limited for three
years and continuation is contingent upon the availability of funding and
satisfactory performance. There is potential for this to become a permanent
position. Continued funding will be dependent upon development of
successful collaborative arrangements with NCSU faculty, graduate students
and outside users.
