This appointment is scheduled to last at least one year with the option to be scheduled to be renewed up to four additional years of research. This research opportunity is seeking a candidate with a Master or Doctoral degree in Chemistry or Pharmaceutical Sciences specialized in the field(s) of high performance liquid chromatography based methods interfaced to various detectors such as diode array, fluorescence, and mass spectrometric. U.S. Citizenship is required. To qualify for ORISE, candidates must have completed their degree within the past five years. Participating as an analytical chemist within the Specialty Chemistry Section providing project support for a variety of environmental and industrial hygiene/occupational health samples. Projects will be conducted using a variety of high performance liquid chromatography based methods interfaced to various detectors such as diode array, fluorescence, and mass spectrometric. Liquid chromatography methods vary between normal phase, reverse phase, and ion chromatography. Candidate should possess the ability to take a project from conception to end point. Some projects will involve sample analysis in which the analyst is responsible for ensuring data is valid, reportable, and in compliance with internal quality assurance (QA)/ quality control (QC) and ISO 17025 requirements.
