Position title
Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Analytical Chemistry-Sang Lab
Description

The Functional Food Lab at the Center for Excellence in Post-Harvest Technologies at the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis, a unit within the School of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at North Carolina A&T State University, is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate who has research experience in the field of analytical chemistry, especially mass spectrometry (MS) and natural product chemistry. Experience with drug metabolism, metabolism of nutrients and other food components, or metabolism of natural products using LC-MS or GC-MS are desirable. The research mainly focuses on discovering and validating specific dietary biomarkers of in complex biological matrices and also monitoring changes of endogenous substances related to risk factors of chronic diseases in animals and in humans. The candidate is expected to work independently in LC/MS and/or GC/MS method development and validation of dietary biomarkers in biological samples.

 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 Dr. Shengmin Sang at ssang@ncat.edu.
