Two Faculty Positions at Shanghai Ocean University
The Shanghai Engineering Research Center of Hadal Science and Technology (HAST), College of Marine Sciences, Shanghai Ocean University invites applications for two faculty positions.
Analytical Scientist: This Analytical Scientist is an expert in analytical mass spectrometry and preferably, has prior experience in high resolution accurate mass spectrometry. The successful candidate will be responsible for maintenance support and day-to-day operations of an ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometer, the Panorama, which will be delivered to HAST in 2018. Preference will be given to individuals with a proven track record and a combination of skills in laboratory management, instrument troubleshooting, data handling and method development. Extensive experience in the operation of on-line sample preparation, maintenance of vacuum systems, and in diagnosis of instrument mechanical and electronic problems is also desired.
Assistant/Associate Professor: We are seeking a highly motivated, collaborative scientist to conduct research in clumped isotope science. The scientist’s principal responsibility is the design, development, validation and implementation of analytical procedures utilizing the Panorama, and publishing research papers. The chosen candidate will have full access to other state-of-the-art instrumentation in microbiology and biogeochemistry. Teaching responsibility is reduced or eliminated for the first three years of the position, per negotiation with the College. This scientist is expected to maintain an active, externally funded research program.
HAST was established to explore the largely unknown hadal zones of the world’s oceans. The center’s activities are a balanced mix of basic and translational scientific research in microbiology, biogeochemistry, paleoceanography and isotope geochemistry. We are interested in innovative and integrative research that will complement existing faculty strengths in above areas.
Both positions are full-time. The chosen candidate will be offered a highly competitive salary and start-up package. Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae with a publication list, a statement of research interests, and the names and contact information of three references. Send electronic materials to Ms. Li (firstname.lastname@example.org) with Analytical Scientist, Assistant (or Associate) Professor Position in the subject line. Review and evaluation of applications will begin immediately. Applications will continue to be accepted until all available positions are filled.
