Description

This opportunity focuses on the measurement development and subsequent application of desorption mass spectrometry-based platforms for studying biological materials (such as single cells) and nanoscale materials (such as engineered nanoparticles). Specifically, secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) and ambient ionization mass spectrometry (AI-MS) are utilized to study the chemistry of biological and nanoscale samples. Both time-of-flight and magnetic sector-based SIMS instruments along with quadrupole and/or time-of-flight-based ambient ionization instruments are available for these studies depending on the aims of the chosen project.
