The Arkansas Center for Laser Applications and Science (ArCLAS) at Arkansas State University is seeking a postdoctoral research associate to join a new project on enhanced laser induced breakdown spectroscopy for standoff sensing of explosives. ArCLAS currently has about $5M in funding, five other postdocs, several graduate students and multiple undergraduates in six major laboratories.
Successful candidates should have a recent PhD in chemistry, physics, applied physics, engineering, or other relevant discipline with a strong background in experimental research. In the highly interdisciplinary lab environment, prior experience in laser technology and optical spectroscopic methods such as fluorescence and other optical diagnostics would be useful. Typical functions include the design and execution of experiments, data analysis, computer programming, and supervision of graduate assistants, as well as the preparation of reports and manuscripts for submission to scientific journals.
The salary range for this postdoctoral position is negotiable depending on qualifications and experience. Salary in the $40-50K range is anticipated plus a full fringe benefits package. U. S. citizenship required. This postdoctoral associate position is awarded for a 1-year period, renewable by mutual agreement in 1-year increments contingent upon funding.
