We are looking for a researcher, temporary position for 2 years.
Research conducted within the group where the researcher will work focuses on analytical developments for mass spectrometric analysis of lipids and metabolites directly of biological surfaces, such as thin tissue sections and cells. The main technique used is nanospray desorption electrospray ionization, nano-DESI, which enables localized liquid extraction at highly defined positions. Click here to read more about our group.
Duties: The researcher is expected to contribute to design and construction of components for development of localized liquid extraction techniques interface to mass spectrometry. Further, the researcher is expected to acquire data from biological material and use and develop strategies for data analysis. Some supervision of students will be part of the duties, not more than 20 % of full time.
Requirements: To be eligible to apply you must have a PhD degree in an area related to analytical chemistry. Post doctoral experience related to localized liquid extraction techniques and mass spectrometry with high mass resolving power is highly meriting. We put great emphasis on personal qualifications. This position demands a creative person with the ability to create novel tools both for data acquisition and data analysis. Further, we put great emphasis on the ability to communicate, cooperate, and work with project students. We work in an international environment and the ability to communicate in English is highly important.
