Job Description

Organic Chemistry R&D Scientist-PhD-Internship


The objective of this internship is to develop methods to measure changes to keratin fibers and colored chromophores in the presence of UV/visible light. Use these methods to identify the different chemistry pathways that lead to degradation of protein, lipid and colored chromophore structures as a function of UV exposure (UVA vs UVB vs visible). Once the methods are developed and pathways identified the aim is to identify and screen potential actives that prevent the UV damage.

Method development to measure changes to the keratin fibers, colored chromophores and reactive species formed on exposure to UV damage

Technical model of potential chemistry pathways that lead to protein and color changes in the presence of UV exposure.

From the proposed technical model identify strategies to prevent the measured protein and color changes

Identify and screen actives to protect against changes to the keratin protein and color in the presence of UV/visible light
