portable separation-mass spectrometry devices for onsite
chemical/biological analysis.

The successful applicant will have a Ph.D. or Master's degree in the
area of separation, microfabrication, mass spectrometry, or
proteomics.  Working experience with Thermo LTQ Orbitrap Veloes, ABI
Qstar and 4700 TOF/TOF, as well as with capillary electrophoresis
