Thayer School of Engineering

Position Number
1125892

Position Purpose

Experienced, motivated analytical chemist wanted for bioanalytical position. The project involves the use of comprehensive chromatography (e.g., GCxGC-tofMS) as well as GC-MS to do targeted and untargeted analyte optimization and quantification. The project ultimately aims to develop diagnostics for infectious diseases.

The primary focus for the applicant will be in the application of two-dimensional gas chromatography mass spectrometry of biological samples. Expertise in at least GC-MS is essential. Manuscript writing experience is also essential.

Required:
• Ability to design and conduct analytical chemistry experiments independently
• Ability to do careful sample preparation and sample handling
• Ability to interpret results, problem solve and adjust strategy
• Fluent use of analytical software (ChromaTOF, if possible)
