Do you have experience implementing state of the art chromatography and separation science? Are you passionate about delivering exceptional research support in a research-intensive Russell Group University?

As an Experimental Officer in Chromatography and Analysis you will be expected to run and maintain our suite of analytical and preparative High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and chromatography equipment  that is used for research and teaching purposes. You will also assume a prominent role in supporting postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers in separation science both providing a service for the rapid analysis of mixtures for quantitation and purity determination including the determination of enantiomeric purity (ee / er).  You will also provide support and training to users to enable them to run samples themselves on our Liquid chromatography – mass spectrometry (LC-MS) and preparative mass directed HPLC instruments.  You will add value and ensure the highest impact outputs can be achieved in areas encompassing supramolecular chemistry, chemical biology, catalysis, organic synthesis, process research and co-ordination chemistry.

With a PhD (or undergraduate degree and significant relevant experience) in Chemistry or a closely related discipline you will have a strong track record in the use of HPLC to support synthetic chemistry and to address research challenges. You will have enthusiasm for interdisciplinary and collaborative research and the ability to use IT effectively. You will be expected to maintain awareness of the latest developments in separation science and where appropriate have the opportunity to acquire additional training so as to maintain your skill base. You will also have the opportunity to contribute to the assessment of course work and examinations and to the planning and review of modules, programmes and quality assurance mechanisms. In addition, you will have an enthusiastic approach to promoting the use and application of separation science to societal challenges, contributing to the PR and public engagement activities of the School.
