Mass spectrometrist GC-MS en LC-MS


9037950 | VENLO | Detachering | WO | 40 uur | publicatiedatum 


Over de functie

Part of our R&D organization, the department Analysis (+/- 50 employees) contributes to product developments and research subjects from an expertise point of view. The department houses several specialist measurement techniques, develops and ensures sufficient knowledge on crucial subjects related to printing technologies and maintains relations with external (research) partners. Within this department you are part of the chemical analytical measurement cluster (+/- 12 professionals). This team is working closely with counterparts at product development teams on a myriad of subjects such as inks and ink components, toner, media, de-inkability and product safety.

To expand the team we are looking for a mass spectrometrist (GC-MS and LC-MS) good affinity with research and able to act independently.
The candidate will be dedicated to mass spectrometry analyses, primarily GC-MS (Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry) and secondarily LC-MS (Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry).
In this role, the candidate will be responsible for the GC-MS-related research activities, both by performing measurements as well as developing new measurement methods and performing the necessary research. Proven experience and affinity with GC-MS is required.

For LC-MS, the candidate's role is a more supportive one (mainly performing measurements and analysis). Involvement with LC-MS is essential to promote synergy between both techniques, thus strengthening the identification infrastructure of the cluster. Proven experience with LC-MS is certainly an asset, but not a strict requirement (the willingness and ability to learn, is).


  • A BSc degree in Analytical Chemistry or a closely related field is sufficient; however, it does need to come along with a thorough proof of expertise and research experience (5 years minimum). For a young professional (2-5 years of relevant experience), the minimal requirement is MSc.
  • Profound knowledge of and experience with GC-MS is required. Experience with more sophisticated applications (e.g. GC-QTOF (Gas Chromatography Quadrupole Time of Flight)) is a plus.
  • Basic knowledge of and experience with LC-MS is preferred.
  • To be successful, the candidate must be able to work independently and with an analytical mindset. The candidate has good communication skills and is pro active, with hands-on approach.
  • Candidate has profound knowledge - verbal and written - of English and, preferably, Dutch.
