This opportunity is focused on the measurement development and subsequent application of mass spectrometry and complementary methods for the novel characterization of organic nanoparticles. Work may include, but is not limited to, novel organic nanoparticle formulations, fundamental measurements of ion formation, development of new analysis paradigms, and/or novel applications of mass spectrometry and related methods to address questions of interest involving organic nanoparticle functionalization, drug delivery, specificity, fate, and transport. Modern instrumentation for both liquid-based and solid-based mass spectrometry and related characterization methods will be available. We are seeking individuals with backgrounds in chemistry, materials science, engineering, physics, and biological disciplines to contribute to our collaborative, interdisciplinary projects.
