We seek an experienced researcher (postdoc level) to fill a R&D position in the project ACID, a Marie Curie Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways grant. The project joins ETH Zurich (Switzerland) and SEADM (Valladolid, Spain) to develop new approaches for on-line vapor analysis for medical diagnosis and security applications.
The SEADM position here announced involves the development of improved instrumention comprising advanced vapor ionization at atmospheric pressure and steady mobility filtration, coupled to an atmosheric pressure source Mass Spectrometer (SESI-DMA-MS) for the analysis of ambient vapors. The system developed will be tested and tuned in close consultation with ETH for its intended application.
We seek an experienced researcher (postdoc level) to fill an R&D position in the project ACID, a Marie Curie Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP) grant. The project joins ETH Zurich (Switzerland) and SEADM (Valladolid, Spain) to develop new approaches for on-line vapor analysis for medical diagnosis and security applications. We anticipate that the unmatched sensitivity and virtually instantaneous response attained will result in revolutionary advances in both fields. The SEADM position here announced involves the development of improved instrumention comprising advanced vapor ionization at atmospheric pressure (i.e. Low Flow Secondary Electrospray Ionization, LFSESI) and steady mobility filtration (Differential Mobility Analyzer, DMA), coupled to an atmosheric pressure source Mass Spectrometer (API-MS) for the analysis of ambient vapors. The system developed will be tested and tuned in close consultation with ETH for its intended application.
SEADM is a Spanish SME founded in February 2005 to develop new analytical instruments to detect trace vapors existing in the atmosphere at parts per quadrillion (sub-femtogram) levels. The ionization technique extends ideas originally proposed at Yale by Nobel laureate John B. Fenn (see Int. J. Mass Spectrom., 300 182-193, 2011 and US patent 8,217,342). SEADM’s laboratory covers a 250 m2 area, and includes a Q-Star XL TOF MS, two triple quadrupoles (an API-5000 and an API-5500), two Q-traps (an API3200 and an API5500) from AB-Sciex, a single quadrupole Shimadzu LCMS 2010, as well as various SESI, DMA and TMIMS test & development workbenches.

Nr of positions available : 1
Engineering - Design engineering
Chemistry - Analytical chemistry
Engineering - Mechanical engineering
Experienced researcher or 4-10 yrs (Post-Doc)
Recognised Researcher (R2)
SEADM’s staff will train the Researcher on the fundamentals of SESI-DMA-MS development, including software tools currently used at SEADM for instrument design and experimental testing, as well as continuous interaction with the varied group of engineers and scientists from ETH and SEADM required to deliver the final product. The Researcher will benefit from additional training defined in the IAPP program, including specific Project management Skills, Entrepreneurship in Technology Ventures, Intellectual property rights management, and Spanish for foreigners.
The ACID program starts in January 2014 and provides two years of support for this position, with an attractive salary. SEADM is committed to extend the position for at least one more year, under conditions to be mutually agreed.

The candidate is required to undertake trans-national mobility when taking up his/her appointment. At the
time of recruitment by SEADM, the researcher must not have resided or carried
out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc) in Spain for more
than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to his/her recruitment. Short stays such as
holidays are not taken into account.
Researchers of any nationality can be recruited within IAPP projects as long as the
transnational mobility rule is respected.
To better plan and organise their stay in a foreign European country, researchers and their families can also benefit of the free and personalised assistance offered by the EURAXESS Services Centres, a network of more than 200 centres located in 40 different European countries.
