The Natural Products Discovery Groups (http://npdg.ou.edu) at the University of Oklahoma is seeking applicants for a postdoctoral research position in natural product chemistry. Experience in the areas of secondary metabolite purification (HPLC and other chromatography methods) and structure determination (NMR and MS data interpretation) is required. Prior experience culturing microorganisms is desirable, but not essential. Applicant must have obtained their Ph.D. by September 30, 2015 to be eligible for the position. Interested individuals should send a cover letter, CV, and the names and contact information for three individuals that will provide letters of recommendation. Applicants will be evaluated based on the strength of their previous research experience and quality of their publication record. Applications will be evaluated as they are received and continue until the position is filled. Completed application packages and questions should be emailed to email@example.com. The Natural Products Discovery Groups is located in the Stephenson Life Sciences Research Center on the University of Oklahoma Research Campus. Our proximity to a variety of diverse University and national labs, as well as commercial ventures, creates a unique and stimulating research environment filled with opportunities.
The College of Pharmacy at The Oregon State University invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow or postdoctoral researcher to work in the laboratory of Dr. Esperanza Carcache de Blanco (http://www.pharmacy.ohio-state.edu/faculty-staff/users/carcache-de-blan1). The candidate is expected to be able to perform research in the areas of in vitro biological evaluation of natural products, isolation and structural characterization of natural products, and chemical modification, if necessary. Expertise in cell culture, protein expression, bioassay design and drug screening is highly recommended.
This position requires experience in molecular biology (e.g., Western blotting, PCR etc.), in addition to natural products chemistry techniques (HPLC, LC-MS, NMR, etc.). Candidates should have a publication record in natural products chemistry and be willing to work in a collaborative environment. Responsibilities include performing research, writing research publications and grants, and training students.
The position is available immediately and will be initially offered for one year with the possibility of renewal dependent upon successful research progress and availability of funds. Please send a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three (3) references to Dr. Esperanza Carcache de Blanco at firstname.lastname@example.org with “application for natural product research” in the subject line of the email.
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 (email@example.com)
