Dear Colleagues,

The School of Earth and Climate Science at the University of Maine invites
applications for a PhD student in the areas of petrology and geochemistry.
This student will have a large share of responsibility in establishing and
developing trace element and geochronological techniques in the new laser
ablation ICP-QQQ-MS laboratory, under the direction of Dr. Alicia
Cruz-Uribe. Funding is available for 4 years and consists of 2 years each
of RA and TA support. Additional RA support may be available depending upon
the availability of internal and external funds.

One of the primary duties of this student will be to liaise with students,
faculty, and visiting researchers and facilitate daily operations of the
new LA-ICP-MS lab. This student will also undertake PhD research in an area
related to the research interests of the Geodynamics, Crustal Studies and
Earth Rheology group at UMaine (
https://umaine.edu/earthclimate/research/geodynamics/). Experience with
laser ablation is required, and preference will be given to applicants with
a master's degree in geology or a related field.

Please contact Alicia Cruz-Uribe (alicia.cruzuribe at maine.edu) for more
information. Interested students attending AGU can arrange to meet with Dr.
Cruz-Uribe in NOLA.

The new instrumentation in the LA-ICP-MS lab consists of an Agilent 8900
ICP-QQQ-MS coupled with an ESI NWR193UC laser ablation system.
