Postdoc in Chemometrics with focus on fluorescence spectroscopy and food proteins

Department of Food Science is offering a postdoc position for a period of 3 years commencing 1st April 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.  
 
The application deadline is 1st March 2018.
  
The position is part of a Sapere Aude research leader project supported by Independent Research Fund Denmark named INSITUQUANT: In Situ Quantification of Protein Modifications in Foods. The INSITUQUANT project offers a unique possibility to explore how steady-state and lifetime fluorescence spectroscopy and advanced multivariate data analysis (chemometrics) can be used to develop quantitative in situ methods for protein modifications in foods. The developed in situ methods will be validated against state-of-the-art analytical chemical methods (typically based on separation techniques such as ultrahigh performance liquid chromatography combined with mass spectrometry). You can read more about the project here: http://food.ku.dk/english/news/2017/new-project-aims-to-improve-the-quality-of-our-food/. 
 
The successful candidate will focus on the use of lifetime and steady-state fluorescence spectroscopy and advanced multivariate data analysis on milk, beer and individual food proteins, and will be part of the Food Proteins group headed by assoc. prof. Marianne Nissen Lund: http://bmi.ku.dk/english/research/food_proteins/. Multivariate data analysis will be performed in collaboration with assoc. prof. Åsmund Rinnan from the section for chemometrics and analytical technology at Department of Food Science. 
 
The ideal candidate has the following competences and skills: 

  • PhD in chemometrics or an equivalent. 
  • Expertise in advanced multivariate data analysis (e.g. PARAFAC). 
  • Expertise in fluorescence-based techniques 
  • Knowledge about protein chemistry, preferably food proteins.  
  • Good interpersonal and communication skills required for team work across disciplines. 
  • Ability to work independently and deliver results within deadlines. 
  • It is also an advantage if the candidate has experience with chromatographic separation techniques for protein characterisation, but if not, it is not a limitation. 
The postdoc’s duties will include research within multivariate data analysis and protein chemistry as well as teaching to a limited extent.  
 
Further information on the Department is linked at www.food.ku.dk.  
Inquiries about the position can be made to associate professor Marianne N. Lund, E-mail: mnl@food.ku.dk, homepage: http://bmi.ku.dk/english/research/food_proteins/
