Salary will be commensurate with experience and would start at $54,900 plus benefits. The position will be initially for 1 year, renewable dependent on the applicant's contributions to the facility.
Description
A team from the Department of Earth System Science at UC Irvine, as well as collaborators from UC Riverside and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, are expanding UC Irvine’s KCCAMS radiocarbon measurement capabilities with a new spectrometer (MIni CArbon DAting System – MICADAS) and a series of peripheral instruments. The new MICADAS lab will enable the joint analysis of radiocarbon and carbon and nitrogen isotopic and elemental composition of terrestrial and atmospheric samples for climate change and air pollution research.
Tasks
To operate the MICADAS, the KCCAMS facility seeks an individual interested in longer-term employment to support system operations, sample processing, data analysis, communication with facility users, training, and method development. The successful candidate is expected to devote approximately 70% of their time to the operation of the MICADAS and associated laboratory, and the remainder interfacing and collaborating with the project’s principal investigators. This includes the co-mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students and postdoctoral researchers, the training of visiting researchers, being responsible for safety procedures, and performing other duties for the MICADAS laboratory as needed.
Requirements
Candidates are expected to have a background in accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) physics or chemistry with a proven disposition toward experimental techniques and applications. Preference will be given to candidates with an advanced degree, Ph.D. or Ms. degree in physics, radiochemistry or similar AMS-related field, or expected to obtain it before employment.
