Dear ES-NET colleagues,
Apologies in advance for any cross-posting. I wanted to bring to your attention the opening below for a Stable Isotope Laboratory Manager at the University of Pittsburgh . Please forward this opportunity to qualified individuals. Come work with us- we are great people and do interesting stuff!
We invite applications for a full-time Research Specialist/Laboratory Manager position for the Stable Isotope Laboratory for Earth and Environmental Science Research at the University of Pittsburgh in the Department of Geology & Environmental Science. This facility currently houses two IsoPrime mass spectrometers (one dedicated continuous flow and one dedicated dual inlet instrument) and associated peripheral devices (Trace Gas, EuroVector TC/EA, Multi-Prep, and Gilson autosamplers). Primary research objectives include the application of innovative stable isotope tracers (N, O, C, S) of hydrological-atmospheric-biological interactions, and reactive nitrogen isotope tracers in environmental systems. Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to: 1) the operation, maintenance, and repair of instrumentation; 2) the training and supervision of students, laboratory assistants, and other users; 3) data reduction, maintenance of laboratory quality control and sample tracking databases; 4) cost center operations including external customer correspondence, invoicing, and reporting; and 5) oversight and assistance with sample preparation. Additionally, preference will be given to candidates with experience conducting nitrate isotope analyses using the "microbial denitrifier method".
The successful candidate will have, at a minimum, a B.S. degree in geosciences or a related field, and 3 years experience with light stable isotope ratio mass spectrometers and peripherals. Candidates with a graduate degree in a relevant discipline and at least 3 years experience with multiple preparation devices will be given preference. Successful candidates will be highly motivated, attentive to detail, and possess excellent organizational skills. The position is available immediately and will remain open until a suitable candidate is identified.
It should be noted that Pittsburgh was recently named "American's Most Livable City" by the Places Rated Almanac, boasts a low cost of living, a stunning cityscape, and is home to a number of world-class museums and a thriving arts scene. The city is also located within a short drive of the rolling hills and forests of the Laurel Highlands and Allegheny Mountains.
