Applications are invited postdoctoral research associate in analytical breath analysis. This project is part of “A volatilome-based signature for age-related recovery & resilience” funded by the Wellcome LEAP Dynamic Resilience Program (https://wellcomeleap.org/dr/). Working with Dr Matthew Turner (Chemistry, Loughborough University) the group will aim to identify potential breath-based biomarkers of physiological resilience, predictive of age and frailty in the human population. The successful candidate will join a collaborative research team spanning three Schools combining expertise in breath VOC analysis, cell biology and artificial intelligence. This post is full-time, fixed-term until September 2026.
This project will be based within the Department of Chemistry and will be building on our existing expertise in breath analysis. The day-to-day activities of the post will include the management and logistics of sample kits, collection, and analysis of VOC samples from human participants and cell cultures, as well as all aspects of their quality assurance.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a cross-disciplinary collaboration. The position is ideally suited for an ambitious early career researcher with a strong background in Analytical Chemistry. Experience of the operation, maintenance and interpretation of GC/MS data is essential. Knowledge of breath VOC sampling and preparation of permeation standards would be advantageous. The successful candidate will be highly motivated and have excellent communication skills.
Informal enquiries should be made to Dr Matthew Turner by email at email@example.com.
Application Closing Date: 30th November 2023.
