Hi, can you please post the below role on your site?

The department of Geology & Geophysics at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is seeking a Postdoctoral Investigator to join their team. This is a full-time position and is eligible for benefits. The position is funded by a cooperative agreement with the US National Science Foundation and is a one-year position renewable to a maximum of three years.


Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Investigator position at the National Ocean Sciences Accelerator Mass Spectrometry Facility (NOSAMS) in the Geology and Geophysics department at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, MA (http://www.nosams .whoi.edu)

The successful candidate will play a key role in the continued development of novel technology for 14C Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) and in its application to problems in ocean and environmental sciences. NOSAMS operates two AMS systems. One of the AMS systems is based on a 3 MV Tandetron and has been recently upgraded with a gas-accepting, hybrid sputter ion source. The other AMS system utilizes a 0.5 MV Pelletron in combination with a unique, gas-accepting microwave ion source. In combination with on-going development of sample-to-source interfaces for both systems, the candidate is expected to develop methods for new lines of inquiry into the global carbon cycle including studies of the biogeochemical cycling of carbon, the detection and tracing of pollutants in natural systems, and paleoceanographic and paleoclimatic investigations of all kinds. The analytical capability developed by the candidate, would form the basis for novel oceanographic and environmental research that may be conducted individually or collaboratively with other members of the scientific and technical staff at the Institution.

The institution has a top-rated postdoctoral program (www.whoi.edu/postdoctoral/<http://www.whoi.edu/postdoctoral/>) that supports a dynamic postdoctoral community with formal mentoring and career guidance programs. While the primary focus of the work will be in research, the postdoctoral investigator will have an opportunity to participate in educational and outreach activities associated with the project.

This is a full-time position and is eligible for benefits. The position is funded by a cooperative agreement with the US National Science Foundation and is a one-year position renewable to a maximum of three years.


The preferred applicant would have a recent Ph.D. and interdisciplinary research interests related to the objectives described above, and have experience with instrumentation. Applications are invited from applied physicists, analytical chemists, geochemists, biologists, and oceanographers. It is desirable that applicants have experience in one or more of the following: AMS, ion-source development, isotope-ratio mass spectrometry and/or chromatographic systems.


In addition to the application form, the following are required: a current CV or resume; a brief synopsis of the applicant's doctoral dissertation; and a concise (two page) statement of research interests and indication of their relevance to the objectives noted above, as well as more general career plans. Please ensure that you include the contact information for three references under the reference section of the application form. We welcome you to contact Mark Kurz at (mkurz at whoi.edu<mailto:mkurz at whoi.edu>) and/or Mark Roberts at (mroberts at whoi.edu<mailto:mroberts at whoi.edu>) with any questions about the position.
