Student lab assistant

In the Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics group at IMAU, we are looking for a student lab assistant to work on H2 isotope measurements. The ideal candidate should have some ability for experimental work, basic analytical skills, and most important, should be serious and reliable. The work is interesting, and consists mostly in maintaining the H2 isotope instrument and analyzing air samples from different environments or experiments. The instrumental setup is based around an IRMS (Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer) and is currently the only setup in the world capable of measuring the isotopic composition of atmospheric H2. The work has to be careful, clean and precise. The lab assistant is welcome to go beyond measuring the samples, to scientific interpretation of the results, if interested. The new lab assistant will take over from the current one, who has to stop at the end of October. The contract will be made for 8-10 hours / week, to be discussed.
