Third-cycle subject: Chemistry, within the doctoral program Chemical Science and Engineering
The position will be connected to the EU financed project RADOV, which has the overall goal to extract bioactive peptides from egg proteins, and to incorporate these in advanced functional products. The specific part of the research project associated with this position regards irradiation of the proteins in order to obtain peptide fragments for further biological investigation and treatment. An important part of this work consists of analysis and characterization of the formed peptides using separation techniques like chromatography and capillary electrophoresis, and mass spectrometric techniques like ESI-MS and MALDI-MS. This includes development of analytical methodology and sample preparation. Both theoretical and practical work will occur, but emphasis will be on the experimental performance. Collaboration with other sub-projects within RADOV will be an important part of the work. The accomplished work must meet the demands of RADOV regarding practical goals, reports, and publication.
The position will be placed within the division of Applied Physical Chemistry in the groups of analytical chemistry and nuclear chemistry.
