United States Secret Service Seeking Eligible Students with Chemistry Backgrounds
The United States Secret Service would like to fund a COE, using the BOA, to support their Dynamic Ink Aging project. This project involves performing a series of experiments to determine the optimized parameters for assessing the age of ballpoint writing ink.
They are looking for two students who are citizens of the United States, chemistry majors and are able to obtain a security clearance or already have a clearance. Students have the option to either work on-site in Washington D.C. in the USSS Forensic Lab or off-site in their own university labs. If the students work off-site they must have access to a gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer (GC/MS) and a thermal desorption unit (TDU). It is anticipated that the length of the project will be one year.
