Who you are

We’re looking for someone at the top of their abilities. Although we think this probably means you have a BSc or MSc in analytical chemistry, (or a related field), this is not a requirement. The candidate should have minimum 1 year experience in relevant area (Analytical/Organic Chemistry or Biochemistry) with hands on experience on method development, validation and troubleshooting for HPLC and GC. Experience servicing analytical equipment is a must. Experience working with IC and/or LC-MS is greatly advantageous.

In terms of personal qualities, we’re looking for someone who is very organised, passionate about their work, who gets things done, who wants to push boundaries. And, not least, who is also a friendly, cooperative person. If this describes you, you’ll fit in with the rest of the team!
