   We are looking for a motivated scientist with a background and strong interest in analytical instrumentation and nanoscale analysis, to join the 1000 talent plan project of Prof. Renato Zenobi at Xiamen University. This project aims at combining near-field laser ablation with sub-µm spatial resolution and ambient ionization mass spectrometry for chemical imaging at the nanometer scale. Laser ablation using aperture near-field probes will be combined with dielectric barrier discharge ionization (DBDI) for atmospheric pressure sampling and highly efficient ionization of the ablation products, followed by high-sensitivity, high-resolution mass spectrometric detection.

   Renato Zenobi is Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich. Since 2017 he also holds a part-time professorship (1000 Talent Plan B) at Xiamen University. Born in Zurich in 1961, he received a M.S. degree from the ETH Zurich in 1986, and a Ph.D. at Stanford University in the USA in 1990. After two postdoctoral appointments at the University of Pittsburgh and at the University of Michigan, Renato Zenobi returned to Switzerland in 1992 as a Werner Fellow at the EPFL, Lausanne, where he established his own research group. He became assistant professor at the ETH in 1995, and was promoted to full professor in 2000. Zenobi was a visiting professor at the Barnett Institute (Boston) in 2004/2005, and at the Institut Curie (Paris) in 2010.

     Renato Zenobi has received many awards for his scientific work, including the Heinrich Emanuel Merck-Prize (1998), the Michael Widmer Award (2006), several honorary Professorships in China (Hunan University; East China Institute of Technology; Changchun University of Chinese Medicine; Chinese Academy of Sciences, Changchun), the Thomson Medal (International Mass Spectrometry Foundation, 2014), the 2014 RUSNANO prize, the Fresenius Award (2015, German Chemical Society/GDCh), and an ERG Advanced grant (2017). He is Associate Editor of Analytical Chemistry (American Chemical Society), and has chaired the 2014 International Mass Spectrometry Conference in Geneva, Switzerland.

     The postdoctoral associate position will start in early 2018, and will be implemented at the College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Xiamen University (Siming Campus). Applicants please contact Prof. Renato Zenobi (zenobi@org.chem.ethz.ch) or Prof. Jian-Feng Li (li@xmu.edu.cn). Application packages should contain a CV, list of publications, academic transcript including grades received, and 1-2 letters of recommendation.
