Postdoctoral Research Assistant I
The successful candidate will support and coordinate gamma-ray astronomy research activities. The primary focus is to increase the data management capabilities of the gamma-ray group within the Cerenkov Telescope Array (CTA) consortium. Another major objective is the analysis and theoretical interpretation of data from the GLAST Burst Monitor, particularly in existing and new Guest Investigations with external collaborators.
Ph.D. in Science, Engineering, or a related field/knowledge of at least one programming language to include C, C++, Java, IDL, Fortran, Perl or python/must possess experience with gamma-ray data analysis and data formats/knowledge of theoretical models for gamma-ray burst prompt emission desired/2 years of experience with physics or astrophysics research, with publication of results in scientific literature preferred
The approximate annual salary range is $34,203 - $47,086.

Student Specialist III
There are three entry-level positions available for undergraduate students in two research projects that are funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institute of Justice (NIJ). Candidates with knowledge in chemistry, biology, earth science, or related field are desirable. The job primarily involves sample preparation for stable isotope analysis, chemical extractions, and data entry. Training will be provided. Pay is approximately $11.25/hour.
The objective of the NSF project is to reconstruct paleoclimate history of the southern Appalachian region in the southeastern US by using multiple, high-quality terrestrial climate proxies. Three terrestrial archives will be examined. They are cave sediments (speleothems), lake sediments and floodplain deposits. The NIJ project is funded by National Institute of Justice and is designed to analyze multiple isotopes (carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen) and trace elements in modern human bone, teeth and hair from the William Bass Donated Skeletal Collection (WBDSC), the Maxwell Museum Documented Skeletal Collection and the Texas State University-San Marcos Forensic Research Facility. The fulfillment of this project will generate a national isotope database derived from the WBDSC and the other donated skeletal collections; provide forensic anthropologists and criminal investigators a comparative database to determine location of residence of unidentified decedents based on the tissue sampled; and evaluate the effectiveness of implementing multiple isotopic and trace element data to constrain the locations and movement histories of modern individuals.
