This position is funded by the National Science Foundation via grant CH 1808717 “New tools to Access the Fungal Metabolome and its Ecological Function”. The Loesgen lab is now located at the Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience, in St. Augustine Florida, USA, right at the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Our research program is focused on understanding the diversity and bioactivity of metabolites produced by microorganisms. We employ a multidisciplinary approach to isolated and identify compounds from terrestrial and marine fungi and bacteria, with an emphasis on compounds with medical application. We have extensive expertise in NMR, MS, and computations to determine the absolute configuration of a compound as well as excellent in-house biological testing for anti-cancer, antibacterial, or antiviral activity. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to isolated and identify new small molecules from fungi using gene activation experiments and metabolomics. In particular, expertise in these areas is required: NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, chromatographic separations, and metabolomics. Research experience in sequencing, gene expression analysis, genome mining, and bioinformatics is a plus. Thus, a Ph.D. with research experience in natural products chemistry, microbiology, biochemistry, or a related field is suitable. We are a diverse, inclusive, and multidisciplinary team. The position is available January 1st 2020 or later and will be initially offered for one year with the possibility of extension dependent upon successful progress in research.
