Postdoc position (short term):

A postdoctoral position is currently available and this is initially for a short term contract (~6 months).
We are looking for someone with the necessary expertise and skills required to undertake a range of experimental studies involving the use of multidimensional fluorescence spectroscopy and multivariate data analysis to study proteins. Expertise in some of the following techniques is desirable: Fluorescence spectroscopy for protein analysis, Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC) of proteins, chemometric data analysis, Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS).  
This post is part of the ARMES ( research project which is an SFI funded project which aims to develop a range of online analytical tools for the analysis of proteins and specifically monoclonal antibodies. 
A PhD degree in analytical chemistry or protein biophysics is required (or an MSc with relevant industrial experience).

Note: For this position English language proficiency is an absolute requirement.
For informal discussions and further information, interested candidates should email through a detailed CV, with the names of at least three referees, and motivation letter to:
