Research Facility Manager (Research Assistant Professor) - Environmental
Science - Advanced Science Research Center in New York, New York



Research faculty engage in, are responsible for, manage, and/or execute
significant areas of research or scholarship. They may serve as principal or
co-principal investigators on grants or contracts, manage postdoctoral
fellows and their research projects or supervise graduate or undergraduate
student research. Research Faculty hold full-time, non-tenure track
positions. While they may participate in instructional programs, such as
lectures or demonstrations, they are not assigned regular teaching duties.


The City University of New York's newest facility, the Advanced Science
Research Center (ASRC), boasts the success of the University's rich past,
and the determination to become a national leader in visionary scientific
research in the future. With a focus in the fields of Nanotechnology,
Photonics, Structural Biology, Neuroscience, and Environmental Sciences, the
ASRC operates as a nucleus of a University-wide science enterprise,
fostering the development of an integrated research network that brings
together faculty, students, and post-doctoral fellows from CUNY's colleges
across the five boroughs. This state-of-the-art facility houses a staff of
elite scientists and leaders who seek to break down the walls between
disparate but increasingly inter-related disciplines of applied science. For
more information on the ASRC, please visit asrc.cuny.edu.


ASRC a full-time Research Assistant Professor who will serve as the Facility
Manager of the Environmental Sciences Initiative's Next Generation
Environmental Sensor (NGENS) Laboratory. NGENS is part of a suite of
observation and laboratory facilities dedicated to the study of complex and
emerging environmental problems. It is designed to serve a broad community
of earth and atmospheric scientists, ecologists, biogeochemists, public
health researchers, engineers, and others.


Reporting to the Director of the NGENS Laboratory, the NGENS Facility
Manager will work with environmental scientists at the ASRC and beyond to
develop, modify, and test cutting edge environmental sensors, deploy sensor
networks utilizing a range of stationary and mobile platforms, and develop a
mobile environmental sensing laboratory. The incumbent will also help to
catalyze collaborative research with other scientific foci at the ASRC
(nanoscience, structural biology, neuroscience, and photonics), and will be
encouraged to develop and drive an independent research program related to
environmental sensing technologies and their applications to studying
human-dominated landscapes.


To meet the objectives described above, the NGENS Laboratory will be a state
of the art fabrication facility with cutting-edge sensor development
technologies that will include LiDAR sensors, gas sensors, air quality
analyzers, spectrometers, environmental control chambers, IR imagers, and
bio-inspired nano-sensing systems. It also will be supported by standard
development equipment including machining, 3D printers, CNC machines,
workshop and electrical engineering equipment.
