Our lab's chief electronics engineer is retiring after 42 years on  
the job with the Geophysical Lab. We are searching for a suitable  
replacement. Duties include general electronics, which entails  
working with a varied scientific staff. The job also includes looking  
after an electron microprobe. The Carnegie is a good place to work  
with nice benefits and salary based on experience. The person who is  
hired will have the opportunity to work with scientists to hire an  
assistant in the not so distant future. Please send inquiries to the  
Lab's Director--Dr. Rus Hemley, [log in to unmask] or his secretary
