The candidate will develop a method to detect natural deep eutectic solvents (NADES) in living organisms (plants, microorganisms, or animals). Next to the detection of natural deep eutectic solvents, the candidate will apply the solvents to diverse fields of life science. In some cases where access to specialized instrumentation is required, you will need to visit (application) laboratories of partners in Germany, France, and the Netherlands for up to a month. Besides the candidate will be responsible for supervising students involved in this project. You are expected to assist in the writing of grant applications. The candidate should have a Ph.D.-degree in Analytical (or Bio-) Chemistry, or in a related discipline, and should have knowledge on current NMR spectroscopy (preferably MAS-NMR). The candidate should have demonstrated a strong interest in an academic career through his/ her publication record and prior engagement in collaborative research and teaching. Furthermore the candidate should have excellent communication and computer skills, and should be proficient in spoken and written English.
