Career: After her studies at the Technical University of Berlin and state exam for food chemists, Claudia Birkemeyer obtained her PhD at the Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Plant Physiology in Potsdam/Golm and then worked as a postdoc in Rothamsted Research, an agricultural research institute of the BBSRC (Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council) in Hertfordshire, UK, in the field of chemical ecology.
Position and Duties: Since 2006, Claudia Birkemeyer has been a working group leader for mass spectrometry at the Institute of Analytical Chemistry at the Faculty of Chemistry and Mineralogy, University of Leipzig. In this position, she manages the faculty's own service for mass spectrometric measurements, which can also be used by university and non-university members outside the faculty. The research of the working group focuses method development for the life sciences.
