Hi folks,
Please see following job announcement for an EPMA research engineer. Basically, this is a hard-money position to manage an EPMA that we will be purchasing later this year. Materials Science works closely with Geosciences, so we expect a lot of geological/geochemical research using this instrument.

We have not yet decided on which instrument we will be purchasing. We recently issued an official bid request.

We will start reviewing applications July 15.

Applicants are welcome to contact me, but please wait until next week at the earliest.
Matt

On behalf of Dan Harlov (GFZ Potsdam, Germany)

The Deutsches GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam is continuing its search for a new permanent head of our Electron Microprobe Laboratory, which consists of a field emission JEOL electron hyperprobe and a JEOL superprobe - both purchased within the last 10 years and with full service contracts (http://www.gfz-potsdam.de/en/section/inorganic-and-isotope-geochemistry/infrastructure/microprobe-lab/). 

   More information regarding the job opening (in German) can be found on the following website.

   Unfortunately there is no English version of the Job advertisement.  Google Translate (https://translate.google.com) can provide an adequate translation for those of you whose German is perhaps not up to par. 

   The GeoForschungsZentrum is obviously looking for the best possible candidate for the position so everyone interested is quite welcome to apply. 

   Further questions regarding the position can be directed to the blue box on the upper righthand corner of the website advertising the position.
