Logo Namur Institute of Structured Matter

The Namur Institute of Structured Matter (NISM), Belgium, offers an 18-months full-time post-doctoral researcher position in the field of cultural heritage science. The project is about experimental studies on parchments and inks using a combined approach of analytical methods for investigating parchment degradation and ink composition. The candidate must fulfill international mobility conditions and possess already expertise in analytical methods used in physics, chemistry or biology. More specifically, the candidate should prove he or she has solid experience with at least one of the following analytical methods: Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (ToF-SIMS), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and Mass Spectrometry (MS) techniques applied to proteomic analyses. In addition to experimental skills, the candidate should show motivation to work in the field of cultural heritage science. The research will be carried out within the NISM and in collaboration with the Mass Spectrometry (MaSUN) platform of the University of Namur.
