Bournemouth University's vision is worldwide recognition as a leading university for inspiring learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society through the fusion of education, research and practice. Our highly skilled and creative workforce is comprised of individuals drawn from a broad cross section of the globe, who reflect a variety of backgrounds, talents, perspectives and experiences that help to build our global learning community.

The Department of Life and Environmental Sciences is leading the project ‘Resolving the extinction crisis: sustainable and technological solutions for biodiversity and society', which also involves other researchers across BU and external partners. Within the project, we are seeking to appoint to appoint a talented, enthusiastic and motivated Post-Doctoral Fellow in analytical chemistry (applied to measuring physiological stress responses in animals using LCMS), who will work alongside three other Post-Doctoral positions that cover a range of other technical disciplines.

You will be highly competent in quantitative, targeted LCMS analysis. Your expertise should include a range of relevant sample preparation techniques and LCMS method development. You will be able to demonstrate experience of designing and conducting validation experiments, and the calibration and maintenance of LCMS systems. Experience in untargeted HRMS analysis using LC- QTOF systems is desirable. You will be expected to analyse complex data sets using appropriate methods to a standard appropriate for publication.

Applications with mass spectrometry experience related to animal physiology and measurement of chronic physiological stress responses would be particularly welcome.

This position is available on a fixed-term basis until 1 February 2026.

For further and informal discussions, please contact the Principal Investigator of the project, Professor Robert Britton ( and technical lead on the analytical chemistry, Dr Richard Paul (, both at the Department of Life and Environmental Sciences.

BU values and is committed to an inclusive working environment. We seek a diverse community through attracting, developing and retaining staff from different backgrounds to contribute to inspirational learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society. To support and enable our staff to achieve a balance between work and their personal lives, we will also consider proposals for flexible working or job share arrangements
