- Development of Methods for Halogen Analysis of Food/Packaging
- College Park, MD
- 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.
