Senior Technical Officer in Bioanaylitcal Chemistry

Starting salary in the range of £24,152 to £26,391 a year, with potential to appoint up to £27,999 dependant on qualifications, demonstrable exprience and skillls. (Potential progression on performance once in post to £29,704).
As part of a new NERC-funded research facility for environmental metabolomics, we seek to recruit a Technical Officer and an Experimental Officer (see separate posting on for the Experimental Officer). This facility will offer a complete metabolomics service that includes design of experiments, metabolite extraction, measurement of metabolites using high resolution FT-ICR mass spectrometry and/or NMR spectroscopy, and extensive data analysis. Visiting scientists will be trained by facility staff in several aspects of metabolite analysis. World-class analytical facilities exist at Birmingham, including a Thermo LTQ FT mass spectrometer with Triversa chip-based nanoelectrospray system and Dionex Ultimate 3000 LC, and six NMR spectrometers from 500 to 900 MHz with sample changes and cryoprobes.
The Technical Officer will contribute significantly towards facility operation; train visiting scientists and assist them with biological sample preparation; and measure small molecule metabolites using direct infusion mass spectrometry, LC-MS and/or NMR spectroscopy. You should hold a higher degree in chemistry or biosciences or equivalent, with significant hands-on experience in analytical biochemistry.
This post is available for a period of 3 years.
