We are looking for a Postroctoral Fellow or a Technician in Chemometrics and Raman Spectroscopy
We are looking for a postdoc or a technician to lead a multidisciplinary collaboration that will be focused on detection and identification of plant pathogens using Raman spectroscopy. The candidate has to have strong research experience in chemometrics and Raman spectroscopy.
Responsibilities: lead a multidisciplinary collaboration between Kurouski group (College Station, TX) and Mandadi group (Weslaco, TX). The collaboration will include collection of Raman spectra and their statistical analysis using chemometrics. The position will be based at The Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at Texas A&M University in College Station with an expectation to make periodic trips to Weslaco, TX for a sample collection.
Prerequisites: Ph.D. or M. Sc. in chemistry/biology/biochemistry/biophysics, strong background in multivariate statistical methods, such as PCA. MatLab/PLS_Toolbox or SIMCA experience is required. Motivation to work with sophisticated instrumentation is important.
For more details, please contact Prof. Dr. Dmitry Kurouski at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information and recent information on this topic can be found on kurouskilab.comand https://agrilife.org/mandadilab/
We are also looking for motivated and enthusiastic graduate and undergraduate students to work on the following projects:
- Structural organization of amyloids
- Elucidation of electrochemical and electrocatalytic processes at nanoscale
- Forensic applications of Raman and surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy
- Detection and identification of plant pathogens
If you are interested, send applications with CV to Prof. Dr. Dmitry Kurouski
