Application Scientist

Vacancy Reference Number

Closing Date
31 Oct 2020
Up to £40,000
Currently based in Rugby but will be relocating to the area around Reading later this year.

We are looking for an Application Scientist to join our team to lead the work on identifying potential uses of the technology for customers; this will involve running challenging samples, followed by publishing application notes and papers to demonstrate the potential of 2DMS.

The successful candidate will work closely with the Verdel scientists and engineers leading the instrument design. They will also work with customers to analyse their samples using 2DMS and analyse/report the results. We are looking for a recent PhD or post-doc researcher who has a very strong understanding of the fundamentals of all aspects of tandem mass spec, from sample preparation to data analysis and interpretation They do not need to know details of the 2DMS technique as this can be taught by Verdel – it will be easily picked up by the right candidate.

As a small start-up company, all team members have to be prepared to get involved in anything that needs their support; we are looking for people who are flexible and willing to tackle issues that are outside the scope of their formal job description.

Further Information

Verdel Instruments was formed to exploit the 2DMS technique developed by Prof Pete’s O’Connor’s group at the University of Warwick.To date, Verdel has completed a proof-of-concept of 2DMS, applying the excitation and UV-laser fragmentation techniques developed by Pete’s group.

This is a great opportunity to join a new team to be part of a disruptive technology in MS and would suit those looking to move into a commercial career, or someone who wants to gain some industrial experience. There will be plenty of opportunity to publish results given the innovative nature of 2DMS.
