Manager of Stable Isotope Laboratory

The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at University of Tennessee invites applications for a full-time manager position of the stable isotope geochemistry laboratory supervised by Assistant Professor Anna Szynkiewicz. The facility includes two isotope ratio mass spectrometers (Finnigan Delta Plus XL and Delta Plus) with five peripheral devices (TC/EA, GC/C, EA, EQ, CarboFlo) for analysis of stable C, N, O, S, H isotope compositions in water and sediment samples. We seek a highly motivated individual to operate and maintain the instruments, develop analytical methods, train students and visitors, and ensure safety protocols. Pursuit of independent and/or collaborative research is not required, but will be encouraged. A BS degree is required, but MS or PhD in Earth Science or Chemistry is preferred. Experience with stable isotope analytical techniques and preparation/care of geological samples in all phases is preferred, as well as an aptitude for repairing scientific instrumentation. Candidate must be organized, have good verbal and written communication skills, and ability to interact with lab users of all levels. Although three years of funding have already been committed for the position, the initial appointment will be for one year, with annual renewals dependent upon performance. For full consideration, we request a letter of application, vita, statements of lab experience and research interests, and contact information for three referees. Review of applications will start on November 25, 2013. Preferred start date is January 1, 2014.
