PhD position in Analytical Chemistry

We are seeking a candidate who is independent and self-motivated; details of the project can be adjusted based on the candidate’s skills and interests. The candidate will be expected to take leadership within the project as they will be required to drive and conclude their work independently, to take initiative and discuss/develop their own ideas including writing well-formulated reports and journal articles. The candidate will be working in a multidisciplinary team of engineers, pathologists, food scientists and modellers involving several research groups internationally, thus good team skills, communication and the ability to travel are required.

At minimum, the candidate must possess a masters’ degree with experience in molecular biology, microbiology, biochemistry, bioengineering, biotechnology, veterinary sciences, bioinformatics, cell biology or related discipline. Demonstrated experience with various analytical biochemical techniques (e.g. ICPMS, spectroscopy, mass spec) and microscopy (e.g. epifluorescence, holographic digital, CLSM) are very desirable and/or knowledge of cell cultures, cell signalling, and/or polymeric chemistry is advantageous. Please clearly indicate on your application any specific experience with molecular techniques, including genomics, microbiology; chromatography (HPLC / GC), fluorescent tags/probes, UV spectroscopy. It is not a requirement that the candidate has prior experience in aquaculture, but it would be useful to have skills such as technical operation of multiphase bioreactors and/or aquarium systems.  Experience of microbiology, molecular biology, bioanalytical assays and working with other microorganisms (e.g. fungi, cyanobacteria, viruses) are considered merits. If the following items are not evident on the CV, please state clearly in the cover letter how you meet the following requirements:

  • Proof of research and scientific writing skills with at least 1 published peer-reviewed article as first author (please also highlight any technical reports written). Full-text of the article and your masters’ thesis must be provided with the application.
  • Demonstrated statistical skills, including work with R or other relevant software
