Higher research scientist for metabolic imaging using mass spectrometry (3D OrbiSIMS) - NPL

Date Posted: 14/06/17
End date for submission of applications: 09/07/17

Job Description:

The UK`s National Physical Laboratory (NPL) sits at the intersection between scientific discovery and real world application. One of the top three National Measurement Institutes (NMIs) in the world, we now have a regional presence and strategic relationships with Surrey and Strathclyde Universities. Our expertise and original research have benefited UK citizens and the UK economy for over a century.

Join a world leading research team at the National Centre of Excellence in Mass Spectrometry Imaging (NiCE-MSI) at the UK`s National Physical Laboratory (NPL). 

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our team developing and applying the revolutionary 3D OrbiSIMS for high-resolution biomedical imaging. This powerful new instrument, built from an NPL concept, has recently been installed at NPL. It has the highest simultaneous spatial resolution and mass resolving power providing unique capability for label-free 3D imaging of cells, bacteria and tissue. 

Our research goal is to image and identify metabolites and pharmaceuticals with sub-cellular resolution and to provide measurements that enable our biomedical collaborators to build fundamental understandings of metabolic networks. 

The position is a 3 year fixed term contract.

We are seeking a high-calibre researcher with post-graduate experience in biological mass spectrometry, metabolomics, proteomics, mass peak identification, and experience with Orbitrap mass spectrometers would be beneficial. Experience in mass spectrometry imaging such as secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) is useful but not necessary as full training will be provided.

Our research goal is to image and identify metabolites and pharmaceuticals with sub-cellular resolution and to provide measurements that enable our biomedical collaborators to build fundamental understandings of metabolic networks.

At NPL we recognise that our success comes from attracting energetic and imaginative people, a reflection of our own values. The self-cultivated atmosphere of support and collaboration is one we are justifiably proud of and at every level, in every area of our business we seek to nurture and respect our people to support each other to grow, succeed and enjoy work. Join us and you’ll soon see how thought leadership and imagination inspire all of us to greater things. It`s about challenging complexity and bringing clarity and building relationships that make a difference. We are bold and visionary; we believe that anything is possible at NPL.

Based in a unique, purpose-built research environment, we are located in beautiful surroundings on the edge of Bushy Park, south-west London with a host of onsite facilities. These include a subsidised crèche, restaurant, free parking and our own sports and social club.

NPL Management Limited is committed to supporting its people to develop both personally and professionally and is committed to equal opportunities.

Please note we will be reviewing applications throughout the recruitment process, so would encourage you to apply now.

Instrument Scientist - University of Lincoln

Date Posted: 06/06/17
End date for submission of applications: 20/06/17

Job Description:

We are seeking a candidate with experience in the utilisation of high-end mass spectrometry in research, training and commercial contexts to join an established team of specialist Instrument Scientists. You will have the potential to provide a sustained contribution to all aspects of the University’s activities including research, teaching and knowledge exchange. Early career candidates will be able to demonstrate the ability to develop their skills across the broad spectrum of attributes required for this role.

The new Schools of Chemistry and Pharmacy are central to the University’s strategy to extend its provision in STEM subjects. The Schools development has been primed by major investment in research laboratory infrastructure and instrumentation and these have been incorporated into the Joseph Banks Laboratories (JBL) that form the research environment for the Schools of Chemistry, Life Sciences and Pharmacy. It is the intention to make facilities available to a range of users across the constituent Schools of the College of Science to enhance research outputs and offer high-level training and outstanding student experience for appropriate undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes.

Importantly, these faculties will play a key role in the development of Lincoln’s knowledge transfer agenda supporting, in particular, the development of the Lincoln Science Innovation Park for which JBL represents the first stage in the development of a vibrant scientific community. It is envisaged that scientists from local/regional businesses will form a key component of instrument user communities and that provision of data and delivery of collaborative projects will form an important strand of activity for development of the scientific environment of the University.

The infrastructure investment includes the following major instrument groups: NMR (500MHz including CPMAS), X-Ray Diffraction (dual-source SCD and multi-modal PXRD), Vibrational Spectroscopy (highspecification FT-IR/FT-Raman/micro-Raman), Thermal Analysis (including hyphenation to MS/FTIR/XRD) and Tandem Mass Spectrometry. These are housed in purpose-built environments in the Joseph Banks Laboratories.

The University has recently undertaken a procurement exercise for Tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC-QTOF, LC-TQ, and GC-TQ) to complement its array of GC-MS and HPLC instrumentation. We are seeking to recruit a highly skilled research scientist with expertise in advanced operation of these instruments and the potential to manage and develop these resources in conjunction with a highly motivated and dynamic multi-disciplinary academic community.

Early career candidates will be able to demonstrate the ability to develop their skills across the broad spectrum of attributes required for this role.

The University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious institution and you will be working in the heart of a thriving, beautiful, safe and friendly city. The School provides a stimulating environment for academic research, and is based in high quality, newly developed facilities.
