  • This is an exciting opportunity to lead on an innovative, collaborative 30 month project working at ADNA laboratories based in the East of England, to develop and establish a modern toxicology testing facility providing a timely and industry leading service to the county coroners and pathologist offices in response to a UK shortage of laboratories with these key capabilities.

    Kingston University has teamed up with Anglia DNA Services (ADNA), who are an independent UK laboratory offering a range of scientific services, specialising in DNA, Drug & Alcohol Testing for both court-directed and private purposes.

    Key responsibilities of the role will include Method Development, Method Validation, Validation Analysis & UKAS Submission, Analysis and Reporting of Casework Data and Post Accreditation and Case Study Publication.

    The Person

    To be successful in this role, you will have a BSc in Chemistry/Bioscience/Forensic Science or closely related subjects and ideally an MSc or PhD in similar area. You should have experience in analytical sciences - especially molecular analysis through separation and quantification with mass spectrometry and excellent knowledge of analytical techniques. In addition you will have Excellent knowledge of Chromatography, Mass spectrometry and associated data processing, plus be able to demonstrate analytical sciences skills e.g., Liquid/Gas Chromatography.

    The successful candidate will be primarily based at Anglia DNA Services (ADNA), in the East of England, although likely to spend some time at other sites and at Kingston University near London, where the academic team is based.

    At the end of a successful project, there is potential for Anglia DNA to offer further opportunities with the company.
