We are looking for a Postdoctoral Associate to work in a primarily lab manager capacity (75%) with a 25% research effort. Link to apply and details below. If you are interested, please submit your CV and the names of two references.
The Rutgers Paleomagnetism Laboratory (Principal Investigator: Prof. Sonia Tikoo) seeks a Post Doctoral Associate. The role of the Associate will primarily be to prepare samples, conduct paleomagnetic measurements, and help train junior researchers (approximately 75% of effort). The Associate will also aid with the installation and maintenance of a 2G Enterprises superconducting rock magnetometer, RAPID sample handling system, and other rock magnetic characterization instrumentation in the Paleomagnetism Laboratory. Paleomagnetic research may be conducted on a part-time basis under the supervision of Prof. Tikoo (approximately 25% of effort). The estimated start date for the position is September 1, 2016. The initial appointment will be for one year, with possible renewal for a second year.
A PhD in the geosciences is required. The ideal candidate will have experience with preparing and measuring paleomagnetic samples, programming (e.g., Python, Matlab, or LabView), and use and maintenance of a superconducting magnetometer.
