The Department of Earth Sciences at the University of California, Riverside
invites applications for a career-level Academic Coordinator position in
the Stable Isotope Laboratory. The candidate will be responsible for the
operation and maintenance of the facility. We have three ThermoFisher Delta
V Plus mass spectrometers with multiple types of peripheral devices (e.g.,
Costech Elemental analyzer, GasBench II, TC-EA, GC-Isolink, and Kiel
device), which are operated by faculty, postdocs, students, and lab
assistants. The Academic Coordinator will be responsible for scheduling
instrument time, training faculty, visitors, postdocs, and graduate and
undergraduate students on sample preparation and analysis. She/he will
develop quality control standards and implement protocols for pre- and
post-analysis of samples and data.
The successful candidate will be responsible for troubleshooting peripheral
devices and mass spectrometers, as well as fixing simple problems or
coordinating necessary service calls. Experience with gas chromatography,
quadrupole mass spectroscopy, and organic analysis, as well as some
experience with carbonates (e.g., Kiel device and GasBench II) is
desirable. A willingness to learn and develop new methods and techniques,
as well as maintain well-developed ones, is considered a plus for this
position. The candidate will be expected to interact closely with faculty
and will have the opportunity for engaging in research projects.
