Research - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
To master, modify, and apply complex liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry assays for human urinary biomarkers of oxidative damage and tobacco smoke carcinogen exposure. These methods require not only a thorough understanding of the principles involved and familiarity with the mass spectrometers in the facility, but also an ability to solve chromatographic problems as they arise.
Analyze human urine samples collected in a large clinical study of the low nicotine cigarette
Conduct mass spectrometry-based analyses of organic compounds in blood, urine, or DNA
Independently observe and resolve deviations caused by minor changes in chromatographic conditions, sample composition, or mass spectrometric parameters.
Summarize, analyze, graph and report results of data collected
All required qualifications must be documented on application materials.
