Job Description - Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Natural Products and Mass Spectrometry Metabolomics in the Laboratories of Dr. Nadja B. Cech in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of North Carolina Greensboro. About the Cech Laboratory: Research in the Cech Laboratory is cross-disciplinary and focuses on investigation of biologically active natural products from plants, bacteria, and fungi. Our team is supported by two National Institutes of Health funded centers. The Center for High Content Functional Annotation of Natural Products (HiFAN) seeks to develop new methodologies to define chemical composition and mechanism of action of natural products using mass spectrometry metabolomics. The Natural Product Drug Interaction Center (NAPDi) conducts clinical studies to identify interactions that may occur when natural products are co-consumed with pharmaceutical drugs. In the Cech group, we believe that the most creative research is accomplished by a maximally diverse team of people. Our group strives to create an inclusive environment where our members feel inspired and supported to create and innovate together. We would love to have you join us!
