The Environmental Isotope Laboratory and the Geosciences Department at the
University of Arizona is looking for a post-doctoral scholar to assist in
the development and implementation of a new laser absorption instrument for
the measurement of clumped isotope ratios in CO2 derived from carbonate
samples. The hired employee will work with engineers at Aerodyne Research
Inc. refining and testing a prototype Tunable Infrared Laser Direct
Absorption Spectroscopy (TILDAS) system for clumped isotope measurements in
CO2. The hired employee will receive extensive training in optical systems,
quantum cascade lasers, and laser absorption technology. Success in this
position will require a self-motivated and independent researcher with a
passion for instrumentation.

*This position will be located at Aerodyne Research Inc., in the Boston
area, for the first 12 to 18 months. After this first phase of employment,
the Post-Doc will relocate to Tucson, Arizona, to assist in the development
and testing of an automated system for processing carbonate samples. *

We are seeking to fill this position as soon as possible, ideally before
the end of 2017.

This position is fully funded by NSF and the Environmental Isotope
Laboratory and may continue after a two year term, contingent on
performance and continued funding. Initial temporary job location is noted
in grant.

*Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, vision, and life
insurance; paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; UA/*ASU*/*NAU *tuition
reduction for the employee and qualified family members; access to UA
recreation and cultural activities; and more. *The University of Arizona
has been listed by Forbes as one of America’s Best Employers in the United
States and WorldatWork and the Arizona Department of Health Services have
recognized us for our innovative work-life programs.


Employee will be responsible for the operation of the TILDAS system after
training at Aerodyne and we will rely on the hired candidate to perform a
battery of tests and experiments with the laser system.


The ideal candidate has extensive experience in a stable isotope laboratory
and the operation of dual-inlet gas ratio mass spectrometers. Hands-on
experience in carbonate-CO2 extraction systems, gas handling techniques,
and instrument design/maintenance is highly desirable.
