Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Chemistry with Focus on Organic Contaminants
Duties and responsibilities
We are seeking a post-doctoral research fellow with several years of post-doc experience. The main duty is to lead and supervise the development of chemical analysis of novel organic environmental contaminants. The successful candidate will be responsible for development of spectroscopic, chromatographic, and mass spectrometric methods for novel contaminants and materials and will participate in ongoing projects on, for example, PFASs and PACs. Responsibilities also include general maintenance of advanced analytical instruments in our well-equipped laboratory, supervision of students, teaching, and to communicate research results to researchers and industrial partners.
To be eligible for a position as a postdoctoral research fellow the successful candidate should have obtained a Ph. D degree in chemistry or related subject areas, within the last seven years prior to the deadline for application.
Documented knowledge and experience in analytical organic chemistry and mass spectrometry is a requirement. Knowledge and skills in PFAS- and PAC- analysis and development of analytical methods for human and environmental matrices is a merit. The successful candidate should be ambitious, analytically oriented, seeking new research questions, and have the ability to both co-operate and work independently with research. Proficiency in written and spoken English is a requirement. General assessment criteria include good interpersonal skills and an ability to cooperate as well as the ability and suitability otherwise required to perform the duties well.
