The Department of Earth and Environment at Florida International University
(FIU) announces an opportunity for post-doctoral research in the area of
science education, in support of an NSF/TUES funded project expanding the
application of remotely-operated Scanning Electron Microscopy and Electron
Probe Microanalysis in undergraduate geoscience curriculum.  The candidate
must have experience in the operation of and data acquisition using an SEM
and/or EPMA, plus experience in the interpretation of results for research
purposes.  A PhD in an area of Geoscience, with teaching background or
research emphasis on petrology, mineralogy or geochemistry is ideal.  The
successful candidate will work with geoscience faculty from several
institutions to develop and support educational applications of the
instruments.  Specific duties include: 1) operation and/or supervision of
use of the instruments in support of remote classroom activities and
student research, 2) on-site training of newly recruited remote users to
facilitate their specific applications, and 3) presentation of webinars or
other user-directed workshops to facilitate and encourage educational use
of remotely operated SEM and EPMA.  The primary location will be at FIU (, where a department engineer has responsibility for
instrument maintenance and repair.  The appointment will last for two years
