Description:

 

The Chromatography Laboratory of the Department of Chemistry, FFCLRP University of São Paulo, offers one (1) postdoctoral fellowship. The main goal of the project is to develop and validate an ultra-efficient liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry (UHPLC-MS / MS) in column switching mode for the determination of biomarkers (TAU proteins and peptides β-amyloid) in plasma samples from patients with Parkinson's or Alzheimer's diseases. The postdoctor will be subsidized with a FAPESP postdoctoral fellowship with a validity of one year, renewable for another one year. The scholarship is linked to the Thematic Project titled " Single drop chromatography and its coupling to mass spectrometry: instrumental strategies, development of materials, automation and analytical applications". The fellow is obliged to dedicate himself fully and exclusively to the project. The other requirements and benefits are available at <http://fapesp.br/bolsas/pd>.

 

Requirements:

 

1) Interested candidates must have completed their doctorate for less than 7 years;

2) Previous experience in development and validation of column switching UHPLC-MS/MS methods, synthesis and characterization of stationary phases (fused silica capillaries), biological sample preparation, clinical evaluation of biomarkers in the study of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases. The experience can be proven by means of a doctoral thesis or equivalent, as well as publications in scientific periodicals of relevance in the areas of chromatography and / or neurosciences.

 

Documents required for registration:

Those interested must send the following documents in pdf format for Prof. Maria Eugênia Queiroz Nassur via e-mail (mariaeqn@ffclrp.usp.br) until February 28, 2019:

 

1) Curriculum Vitae;

2) Letter of interest, explaining the reasons for your application.
