The Geochemistry program at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL), Florida State University, seeks a postdoctoral researcher in high-temperature geochemistry and/or cosmochemistry. The candidate selected is expected to conduct research in isotopic analysis of extraterrestrial materials. The initial appointment will be for one year, with renewal for up to two additional years conditional upon performance and availability of funding. A PhD in geochemistry or cosmochemistry is required. Geochemical facilities available include a Neptune™ Multicollector ICP-MS, an Element XR™ high resolution ICP-MS, a Class-100 clean laboratory, laser ablation systems, etc. Applicants with experience in high-precision isotopic analysis by MC-ICP-MS (or TIMS) and clean lab geochemical techniques will be given preference.
Interested applicants should submit a CV, statement of research interests, and the names and contact information of three references to Dr. Munir Humayun (firstname.lastname@example.org). Review of applications will begin June 11, 2018, until the position is filled.
The NHMFL is operated for the National Science Foundation by a collaboration of institutions comprising Florida State University, the University of Florida, and Los Alamos National Laboratory. FSU is an Equal Opportunity/Access/Affirmative Action/Pro Disabled & Veteran Employer.
