Hi all -
     We are looking for a Senior Research Associate for the stable 
isotope labs at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (please see the 
announcement below).  Please feel free to pass this information on to 
anyone you think might be interested.  For more information or to 
apply, please follow the directions at the bottom of the announcement 
(Do not reply to the list!).


Senior Research Associate (Requisition Number 019049), Lawrence 
Berkeley National Laboratory

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is located in the 
San Francisco Bay Area on a 200-acre site in the hills above the 
University of California’s Berkeley campus and is managed by the 
University. A leader in science and engineering research for more than 
70 years, Berkeley Lab is the oldest of the U.S. Department of Energy’s 
National Laboratories.

The Center for Isotope Geochemistry (CIG) at Berkeley National Lab 
seeks an individual to provide analytical support for research 
projects.  The primary responsibility will be performing a wide variety 
of stable isotope analyses on diverse types of samples.  This will 
include sample handling and disposal, preparing samples for analyses, 
running analyses on the mass spectrometers, ensuring good data quality 
and compiling data into tables and graphs.  The incumbent will also be 
responsible for routine maintenance and repairs on laboratory 
equipment, ordering and inventorying laboratory supplies, and assisting 
other users with the facilities.  Other potential activities include 
limited participation in research projects involving the stable isotope 
group.  This may include development and testing of analytical 
techniques required to support research, synthesis and interpretation 
of data generated for the projects (possibly including presentation of 
results at meetings and participation in preparation of manuscripts for 
publication in peer-reviewed journals), and some field work.

Essential -- Two to five years of experience with stable isotope 
analytical techniques, including operation and routine maintenance of 
an isotope ratio mass spectrometer.   Experience with other applicable 
analytical techniques such as gas chromatography or ion chromatography 
is also desired.  Proven ability to coordinate and process analyses of 
large numbers of samples in a timely fashion with minimal supervision.

Marginal -- Experience growing and maintaining cultures of 
microorganism.  B.S. or M.S. in geochemistry or a related field.
