Tatlock & Thomson specialises in the independent analysis of alcoholic beverages, foods, waters and raw materials, principally for the distilling industry, but also for beers and wines. From time to time, at our Fife laboratories, vacancies for graduate chemists/scientists occur and we are always happy to review provisional CVs should an appropriate vacancy arise.
We currently have a position for a Chemistry Postgraduate to develop methods of organosulphur analysis in Distilled Spirits.
The procedures to be developed will be based on a new Agilent GC utilising automated Solid Phase Micro Extraction with specific Chemi-luminescence detection with existing GC-Mass Spectrometry for confirmation of molecular identity.
Initially, the appointment will be for 9 months with the potential for extension.
Salary range will be £30,000 to £38,000 pro rata for 9 months depending on qualifications and experience.
This is a rural location and the position would be most suited to candidates familiar with Scotland, possessing a full driving licence and their own transport.
Depending on the general progress in the project, there is a possibility of extending the initial 9 month period of employment.
Ideally, the candidate should have a recent PhD or Master's degree in Chemistry with experience in gas chromatography.
