|Title||Postdoctoral Research Associate in Mass Spectrometry Metabolomics and Natural Products|
|Location||University of North Carolina Greensboro|
We are seeking a postdoctoral research associate to join a dynamic, diverse, and highly productive NIH funded research group at the University of North Carolina Greensboro. Our work focuses on the application of mass spectrometry to improve human health and treat disease. Several of our current projects involve the development of novel mass spectrometry metabolomics tools for characterizing complex mixtures, and the identification of new biologically active natural products for the treatment of drug-resistant bacterial infections. The PI (Dr. Nadja Cech) has an outstanding track record for mentorship, and has successfully placed former students and postdocs in academic and industry positions. She is highly experienced with supporting applicants in the publication of research results and in successfully securing NIH Fellowships.
The ideal candidate will have earned a Ph.D. in mass spectrometry, analytical chemistry, medicinal chemistry, phytochemistry, pharmacognosy, and/or natural products chemistry and will have expertise and interest in developing and applying novel methodologies at the interface of mass spectrometry and natural products research. Experience with mass spectrometry metabolomics experimental design and data analysis and/or expertise in the isolation and de-novo structure elucidation of natural products are desirable characteristics. A willingness and ability to contribute to a team-oriented research environment, participate in student training, and communicate effectively, both orally and in writing, are essential.
