Postdoctoral Scholar (Metabolomics/Mass-Spec)- Jain Lab|
Metabolomics/Mass-Spec Post-Doc Position in Jain Lab at Gladstone
The Jain Lab at the Gladstone Institutes (https://ishajainlab.com) is looking for motivated, hard-working and curious applicants. We are particularly interested in recruiting a post-doc with experience and interest in mass-spectroscopy based methods (e.g. metabolomics, lipidomics). The ideal candidate will have an interest in driving metabolomics-focused projects – both independently and in collaboration with other lab members. They will help establish state-of-the-art metabolomics (with full-time access to a Thermo Q-Exactive or equivalent). The candidate will be interacting closely with the Gladstone Mass Spectroscopy Center.
The Jain Lab recently discovered that hypoxic breathing can protect against mitochondrial disease (https://jainlabblog.files.wordpress.com/2017/12/hypoxiatherapy_science_2016.pdf). We are now studying how varying oxygen tensions and varying micronutrient levels (e.g. vitamins/cofactors) affects cellular metabolism. The goal is to “turn the oxygen and vitamin dials” as a therapeutic strategy. We will be using a combination of systems biology approaches (CRISPR screens, proteomics, metabolomics, etc.) and animal physiology to tackle these questions.
Post-docs will be encouraged to lead independent projects resulting in high impact publications, present at conferences and prepare for long-term careers in academia or industry.
If you are interested in working on exciting problems related to oxygen/vitamins/aging, email Dr. Jain at Isha.Jain@ucsf.edu with a short description of your past research experiences and a resume/CV.
Title and salary will be commensurate with education and experience.
Be a part of big ideas and consider Gladstone. Your difference will make a difference in human health.
