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

The participant will receive training in and will focus on; the mass spectrometry of food contaminants, polymers, and packaging, in particular ambient ionization, non-targeted analysis, suspect screening, database development, materials categorization, and methods validation. Activities will include sample preparation, mass spectrometric method development and analysis, database creation/curation, open-source software adaption and/or workflow development, method comparison, method validation, and ion identification.  Experience performing analytical chemistry research and/or mass spectrometry research is required.  Experience in planning and executing statistically complex scientific studies, and/or utilizing ambient ionization, and/or high-resolution mass spectrometry is preferred.  Experience with KNIME, R, and/or Xcalibur/TraceFinder is a positive. The ability to effectively communicate both verbally and in writing is essential.
