NIH T-32 Fellowship:
Botanical Approaches to Combat Metabolic Syndrome
The primary aim of this prestigious training grant is to train postdoctoral fellows to understand the biological effects of multicomponent botanicals on the complex interactions between genetic, molecular and physiological aspects of metabolic syndrome.
The fellowship 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 NIH-funded project with the necessary laboratory training and coursework for establishing an independent research career investigating pharmacologically active compounds from plants. The candidate should have strong scientific credentials in the field of botanicals research and human health and wish to pursue program of research and study that combines these areas. Applicant must be a US citizen or Permanent Resident (green card holder).
We seek a postdoctoral fellow with strong scientific credentials and a background in natural products and medicinal chemistry, knowledge of pharmacology and pharmacological screening, skills in molecular and analytical techniques and a strong publication record. Rutgers University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Fellowships start in January 2015 (possibly earlier in the Fall of 2014).
At the 2014 ASP Meeting (Oxford, MS) please contact Dr. Ilya Raskin (email@example.com); phone 732-794-5600. Thereafter, 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)
• Purification and characterization of pharmacologically active compounds
• Bioassay development
• Analytical separations, analysis and structure elucidation; heavily focusing on HPLC, MS and NMR work
• Excellent management, organization of data, troubleshooting and presentation skills
• Preclinical development of botanicals that can be used to prevent and combat “modern lifestyle” diseases
Phytochemical isolation, purification and characterization
Authentic markers development
One postdoctoral position is available immediately 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, and bioavailability and metabolomic studies of natural products will be given preference. The candidate must have experience in various chromatographic techniques including HPLC and LC-MS. The candidate will be expected to run and help to maintain laboratory equipments, such as analytical and preparative 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.
