Ion Source Designer/Developer Syagen Technology
We are looking for a person with the combined talents of instrument ion source development and knowledge and experience of the interface between LC, GC, and the MS. Syagen is expanding on its atmospheric pressure photoionization (APPI) products and technology including developments of more intense light sources, multimode source configurations, ambient analysis (e.g., with DART and ASAP), and GC/APPI. The candidate must have experience designing MS components and knowledge of sampling methods, e.g., LC and GC and the issues in achieving efficient ionization by multiple means. The person would perform R&D feasibility experiments that would transition to product engineering. This position requires design talent and the ability to perform rapid prototyping and testing. Product development experience or at least familiarity with commercial systems is highly desirable.
Conduct R&D feasibility experiments to validate new technologies with product potential
Develop product specifications (operation, hardware, and software)
Design and integrate ionization source technology to separation and MS components
Work effectively with vendors, commercial partners and customers
Coordinate and execute field tests and customer demos
Interact effectively with engineering, scientific, management, and manufacturing staff
PhD (or BS, MS with exceptional skill) and at least 5 years of experience in MS and/or ion source development
Understanding of ionization processes and ion-molecule chemistry
Excellent design skills and be resourceful in achieving successful lab prototype results
Hands-on design, prototyping, debugging, and optimization skills
Strong determination to meet program milestones
Excellent communication skills and ability to participate in and lead team efforts.
