This is a position funded by a Startimpuls awarded to ‘Measurement and Detection’ in the context of the Dutch National Science Agenda. Measurement of the environment, health and food is transitioning from analyses within an enclosed laboratory/clinical environment to the outdoors, with small devices that are easy to use by untrained personnel. This transition to citizen science will lead to considerable changes in the properties of analytical data. You will work on the development of quantitative data analysis of existing data collected with such small devices. You will also work on the analysis of collected data together with other researchers, who are developing and testing new analysers in exciting environmental, food and healthcare projects.
- you have a background in chemometrics or another field of applied statistics;
- you are well-versed in MATLAB, R or a comparable scientific programming language;
- you have demonstrable affinity with analytical chemistry and measurement of living systems;
- you are able to work independently, playing a crucial role in an interdisciplinary research community;
- you are able to turn complex problems quickly into quantifiable research output;
- you are willing to demonstrate your work both to scientific peers and to a broad audience of non-specialists.
you will be classified as a Postdoctoral Researcher, Level 4 in the Dutch university job-ranking system (UFO).
The Faculty of Science is an equal opportunity employer, committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, and as such encourages applications from women and minorities.

Strategically located in Europe, Radboud University is one of the leading academic communities in the Netherlands. A place with a personal touch, where top-flight education and research take place on a beautiful green campus in modern buildings with state-of-art facilities.
Faculty of Science
The Department of Analytical Chemistry is a large research group exclusively focusing on chemometrics, the ‘chemical data science’. We aim to enhance and increase the functionality of analytical technology through quantitative data analysis methodology. The department currently consists of 5-9 PhD candidates, three postdoctoral researchers and several guest researchers from academia and industry. In our research we work closely together with partners from industry and governmental bodies in the application of our chemometric methods in the quantitative analysis of health, the environment, and important industrial chemical processes. Working with us means maintaining contact with many different researchers from various fields and conducting academic research in several projects of societal relevance.
