One postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Center for Excellence in Post-Harvest Technologies at North Carolina A&T State University. The lab is located at the newly created North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis. The North Carolina Research Campus has state-of-the-art core facilities in the areas of genomics, metabolomics, proteomics, and histochemistry.
Candidates with extensive experience with natural products chemistry (structure elucidation), medicinal chemistry (structure modification), and bioavailability and metabolomic studies of natural products will be given preference. Experience with rodent and cell lines to study the metabolism of natural products and food components is a plus. The candidate must have experience in various chromatographic techniques including HPLC and LC-MS. Applicants must have a recent PhD in natural products chemistry or a closely related discipline.
Continuous self-development, publication activity, learning and sharing research experience are expected from the candidate. Interested applicants are encouraged to apply with an e-mail containing: a statement of current and future research interests, curriculum vitae, and names and contact information of three references to email@example.com.
Summary Description: This prestigious NIH-funded training grant provides two years of funding (with possibility for an additional year) in Dr. Ilya Raskin’s laboratory at Rutgers University, NJ, to join a multi-disciplinary project with the necessary laboratory training and coursework for establishing an independent research career investigating pharmacologically active compounds from plants. This grant aims to train highly motivated postdoctoral fellows to understand the biological effects of multicomponent botanicals on the complex interactions between genetic, molecular and physiological aspects of metabolic syndrome.
Minimum Requirements: Applicant must have a PhD and be a US citizen or permanent resident (green card holder).
Preferred Requirements: The candidate should have strong scientific credentials in the field of botanicals and human health and experience in biochemical isolation, pharmacological characterization and molecular mode of action studies of phytoactives.
Rutgers University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Fellowships start in May 2015.
Please send C.V. and the names of three references to Dr. David Ribnicky, Plant Biology and Pathology Department, Rutgers University, 59 Dudley Road, New Brunswick, NJ 08901 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
