One postdoctoral position in experimental physical chemistry and chemical physics (reaction dynamics, astrobiology, astrochemistry) is open at the Department of Chemistry, University
of Hawai’i at Manoa, for the period of initially one year to investigate the evolution of organics under a simulated Martian environment. The salary is competitive and commensurate
with experience ranging from $ 39,000 to $ 45,000.  Successful applicants should have a strong back-ground in experimental reaction dynamics, surface scattering, UHV technology, and
VUV laser systems, optical spectroscopy (FTIR, Raman, UVVIS), and gas phase detection techniques (time-of-flight and quadrupole mass analyzer). Programming experience in C, labview,
and/or autocad and knowledge in the generation of tunable UVVUV radiation is desirable. The prime directive of this research project is to investigate the chemical fate of molecules
in the extreme environments representative of the surface of Mars. Solid communication skills in English (written and oral) and a strong publication record in internationally
circulated, peer-reviewed journals are mandatory. Only self-motivated and energetic candidates are encouraged to apply; please send a letter of interest, three letters of
recommendation, CV, which includes a publication list to Brant Jones ([email protected]), Department of Chemistry & W.M. Keck Research laboratory in Astrochemistry, University of
Hawai’i at Manoa, Honolulu, HI 96822-2275, USA. Only complete, electronic applications in pdf format will be considered. The review of applications will startJune 1, 2014, with an
expected start state of September 2014. A description of the current research group can be found at and
