Lab tech needed here on campus

This would be appropriate for anyone who has taken 375:310 Analytical Environmental Chem Lab:

Hello everyone -
I am seeking someone in a lab technical position in chemical oceanography (Marine and Coastal Sciences), to start ASAP. Position is hourly and at least half-time, so most appropriate for someone with limited additional commitments (full-time students probably not appropriate). Primary need is for this spring-summer, but could extend further for the right person. Prefer someone with wet chemical lab experience and attention to detail, but will train.

Please circulate this as widely as possible.

Thank you!
