The Manager of Technical and Analytical Services is responsible for the scientific laboratories aboard the R/V JOIDES Resolution, the JRSO staff who support those facilities, and serves as a member of the JRSO management team.

Texas A&M is seeking an individual with the vision and knowledge to provide and support state of the art analytical facilities in a challenging, seagoing environment.  The successful candidate will be a proven leader, who will oversee thirty-two staff who support directly the shipboard laboratories on IODP expeditions.  The successful applicant will have demonstrated the ability to cooperate and work harmoniously with others, to foster collaboration among diverse scientific participants, and to engage the broader scientific ocean drilling community in setting priorities for shipboard scientific measurements and methods.

A Ph.D. in geosciences or related field, 6 years’ of relevant professional experience, and demonstrated proficiency in directing a research laboratory(s) is required. Applicants must have a demonstrated fluency in written and spoken English. Experience in project management and/or seagoing scientist, especially in scientific ocean drilling, is preferred.

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience of the applicant. This is a full-time benefit eligible position, contingent upon continuing availability of funds for IODP. We will begin reviewing applications on 1 August 2017, but will continue to accept applications until candidates are selected for interviews.
