Scientific Officer - School of Earth and Environmental Sciences
The School of Earth and Environmental Sciences (SEES) delivers practical solutions to the complex issues that affect our physical environment and how we interact with it. Our interconnected teams of earth scientists, physical and social scientists, environmental management specialists, health and safety experts, and urban planners work together to address the increasingly critical global challenges of a growing population, climate change, urbanisation, food security, conservation and natural resource management. Researchers, teachers and students from around the world are drawn to our vibrant academic environment at UQ’s stunning St Lucia campus. We house world-class research facilities which include a state-of-art planning studio, GIS computer laboratories, sample preparation facilities and a complex analytical infrastructure consisting of trace element, radiogenic and stable isotope geochemistry, radiogenic and noble gas geochronology, coal petrology and organic geochemistry, geomicrobiology and fluid inclusion facilities. UQ’s research excellence in earth and environmental sciences is world renowned, and is reflected by our consistent high ranking in respected global league tables. The School also has an excellent success rate in nationally competitive grants and a strong record of high quality publications.
The successful appointee will be responsible for sample preparation and performance of light stable isotope analyses using mass spectrometers housed in the Stable Isotope Geochemistry Laboratory (SIGL), part of the Centre for Geoanalytical Mass Spectrometry (CGMS) in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, which include one dual inlet and two continuous flow isotope ratio mass spectrometers (DI-IRMS and CF-IRMS), and an Isoprime-Agilent gas chromatography-combustion-isotope ratio mass spectrometer (GC-c-IRMS) for analysis of mixed gases The position supports UQ staff and research higher degree students in light stable isotope geochemistry research projects and also undertakes work for external clients on a fee for service basis.
Applicants should possess qualifications in chemistry or geochemistry with subsequent relevant experience, or an equivalent combination of relevant education/training. You should also have a demonstrated knowledge of light stable isotope analysis and the ability to operate and maintain stable isotope ratio mass spectrometers and their ancillary preparation systems. A knowledge of software packages for system control and data manipulation and a demonstrated ability to work collaboratively and communicate with colleagues are also important.
