We are looking for an Analytical Chemist in a new position for our PU lab. Your job will include responsibility for new GC/MS (with dynamic headspace) with nearly all possibilities for solid phase extraction and olfactory detection. The PU lab has all equipment like DMA, FTIR, NIR, Laser diffraction etc. It is our goal to go to the next level in finding odor compounds in our foams and textiles and define which VOC’s are coming from the raw materials and which are created during chemical reaction of the PUR foam. Your primary areas of responsibility on the team include:

  • Method development for the GC/MS
  • Running and maintenance of the GC/MS
  • Link knowledge form GC/MS (olfactory detection) to internal/external odor panel
