• Development of Methods for Halogen Analysis of Food/Packaging
  • College Park, MD
  • 40hrs/week
  • Potential Start: 1/4/23,  1yr appointment, with possible 1yr renewal
  • Open to recent/upcoming BS/MS chemistry graduates (US citizen or US residency 36 of last 60 months)

The project will stand-up and investigate combustion ion chromatography methods for total fluorine analyses of packaging and food. The ORISE participant will receive training in and will focus on: chemical analysis methods for halogen and per/polyfluoro substances, method development and validation. Activities will include instrument set-up, troubleshooting, sample preparation, halogen method development and analysis, method comparison, and method validation.  Experience performing chemical analysis with combustion, halogenated analytes, and/or ion-chromatography analysis is required. Experience in instrumental set-up, troubleshooting, and/or method development is preferred.  Experience with total fluorine or PFAS analysis is a positive. The ability to effectively communicate both verbally and in writing is essential.
