The Auburn University (AU) Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry (DCB) is seeking a post-doctoral fellow for the AU Canine Performance Science (AUCPS) Detection Canine Science, Innovation, Technology, and Education (DCSITE) program.
The successful candidate will engage in analytical chemistry efforts in analyzing various target threat substances, such as energetic materials, by chromatography-based separation techniques coupled with mass spectrometry platforms. The primary responsibility of this position is to engage in original, professional-level research that is directed toward achieving the AUCPS/DCSITE program’s main goals. The successful candidate will be responsible for the method development efforts based on previous experience and comprehensive literature surveys, lead instrument maintenance, co-mentor research assistants, and write progress reports, peer-reviewed publications, and proposed plans.
The AUCPS/DCSITE program will serve as the primary academic resource to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for expertise in all areas of detection canine sciences. The AUCPS/DCSITE program will integrate best scientific practices in analytical chemistry, genetics, genomics, reproduction, veterinary and sports medicine, olfactory neuroscience, behavior and cognition, metrology, and engineering to advance detection canine sciences.
