Job Description

Instrumentation Technician

This instrumentation technician will be used to support running systems and analyzing data for the Odin, quad robustness project. This project will require running experiments, some of which will be longer term, on multiple systems, to assess the robustness of various mitigating solutions. Having a technician perform these tasks will free up time from the scientists on the project to focus on technical development work and designing experiments.

Supports the execution of experiments and the analysis of data on mass spectrometers. Sets up instruments for running samples by preparing and loading samples, initiating analytical methods and monitoring instrument operation, according to established procedures. Analyzes experimental data files by using established software analysis protocols.

Want to build a career in a dynamic, results focused environment? Join the team that's providing technical design support for R&D products/manufacturing tooling fixtures, recommends changes and formulates techniques that enhance design for performance. Here, you'll work on technical design support assignments and provide solutions, learning continuously through ongoing training and on-the-job experience.

An Associate's degree or greater in Chemistry, Physics or Engineering.

Some experience with running scientific instruments desired, ideally mass spectrometers. Experience with using scientific data analysis programs also desired
