Research group of Kermit Murray at Louisiana State University where we use lasers for sampling and imaging and study the chemistry and physics of laser ablation.
Murray Group research is aimed at instrument development for mass spectrometry using laser desorption and ablation with applications to biological imaging and separations coupled to mass spectrometry for complex mixture analysis. Our research interests range from exploring the fundamental processes of laser desorption to biological applications.
A NSF-supported post-doctoral research associate position is available in the Department of Chemistry at Louisiana State University in MALDI-2 imaging mass spectrometry. Candidates with experience in imaging mass spectrometry, laser ablation, and instrument design and construction are sought. The postdoc will lead a project aimed at developing an instrument for imaging biomolecules in tissue that uses mass spectrometry and has both high spatial resolution and high mass range. A Ph.D. in chemistry or a related field is required and salary is commensurate with experience and education. Interested candidates should apply online at myworkdayjobs.com.
