The applicant should have experience in analytical and preparative scale instrumentation, including different chromatography LC ‐ DAD ‐ ELSD, LC ‐ MS, and NMR. In this position he will contribute to develop new methodology for plant fractionation, for bioactive identification purposes, as well as high throughput screening purposes. Optimisation of plant extract preparation, dereplication and bioactive characterisation of secondary metabolites will be necessary to achieve methodologies fitting identification and screening requirements.
The candidates should hold a recent PhD in chemistry, analytical chemistry, or plant chemistry. She/he should be keen on analytical development and demonstrate hands ‐ on experience with advanced instrumentation (liquid chromatography, hyphenated systems). Experience on plant sciences, preparative ‐ scale systems, mass spectrometry and NMR is a merit. Fluency in spoken and written English and excellent communication skills is expected. The candidate should also enjoy working together with a group of researchers on different aspects of the same basic research question.
