The Masonic Cancer Center is recruiting several NIH-funded postdoctoral positions. (2 Positions Avaliable)
Position 1: An experienced analytical mass spectrometrist is sought to develop and validate biomarkers of exposures to environmental and dietary carcinogens, and their DNA adducts in cells and human tissues. The research requires derivatization chemistry for tagging biomarkers to enhance analyte detection by LC/MS or GC/MS and mass spectrometric characterization of biomarkers in complex biological matrices. The candidate is expected to work semi-independently in LC/MS development and validation of DNA adduct biomarkers employing triple quadrupole, ion trap and high resolution MS instruments, and GC/MS to measure volatile toxicants in tobacco smoke.
Position 2: Exposomic and metabolomic studies on chemicals in the environment and diet that contribute to bladder and prostate cancer. We are seeking a bioanalytical mass spectrometrist with experience in metabolomics and chemometrics to define non-genotoxic mechanisms that chemicals in tobacco smoke and cooked meat diet impact bladder and prostate cell homeostatis
Position 1: A Ph.D. with research in Bioanalytical Chemistry employing LC/MS or GC/MS is required. The candidate must have a strong training in analytical chemistry and chemical derivatization and LC/MS or GC/MS experience. Hands-on-training in LC/MS of biomolecules, sample preparation and workup are required. Experiences in qualitative and quantitative analysis of biomarkers, trace-level analysis of biomolecules in vivo, and cell culture experience are preferred.
Position 2: A Ph.D. with research in Bioanalytical Chemistry employing LC/MS with exposomics and metabolomics approaches, and data analysis with chemometrics are required for this postion. Training in cell culture work is preferred.
