A postdoctoral position is open at the “Institut Lumière Matière” in Lyon, France (iLM - Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, CNRS) in the frame of the European project FET-OPEN ARIADNE “Redefining mass spectrometry – a breakthrough platform for real-time noninvasive breath analysis with single ion detection of intact viruses and bacteria and post-analysis molecular characterization” (see https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/964553). The objective of the ARIADNE project is to develop a multiple-stage analytical platform based on multi-dimensional mass spectrometry instrumentation, and to perform direct and instant detection of intact virus particles in breath and in water. ARIADNE integrates state-of-the-art technological advancements in breath sampling and post-ionization methods as well as non-destructive ultra-high mass analysis of single bioparticles.


The postdoc hired at iLM-CNRS will be in charge of using our local expertise in charge detection mass spectrometry (CDMS) of large bioparticles. He/she will be responsible for the development and evaluation of the second generation CDMS system operated in stand-alone mode, analyzing viruses and bacteria using electrospray. Additional top-down analysis on single bioparticles will be executed in the CDMS system by multiphoton dissociation using a CO2 laser for producing high mass fragments.


The candidate should have a PhD in Physical-Chemistry or (Bio/Analytical)-Chemistry. He/she should be experienced in laser spectroscopy (action spectroscopy) and MS, in particular MS of protein complexes: an expertise in native-MS will be particularly appreciated. Experience in MS instrumentation is a significant plus. The candidate should be comfortable with biological (large proteins and assemblies) sample handling: purification, storage and preparation for native-MS and have a critical eye on the evaluation of the structural integrity of the systems.
