Job Opportunity: Post-doctoral Researcher in Metabolomics, at GEOMAR, Germany

Deadline: 23 May 2018


GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel ,Germany, has a vacancy for a Post-doctoral Researcher in Metabolomics in the Research Unit Marine Natural Product Chemistry / GEOMAR Centre for Marine Biotechnology. The post starts on 1st July 2018.


Job Description:
Metabolomics has become an indispensable tool in natural product research for dereplication, chemical profiling and biological activity assessments of small molecule natural compounds. Comparative metabolomics is a powerful technique also in chemical ecology for analysis of the impact of fluctuations in marine habitats.


GEOMAR is seeking a highly skilled and experienced candidate with demonstrated expertise in LC-MS-based metabolomics coupled with intensive statistical analysis of natural products found in marine macro- and microorganisms. The holder of this post will use LC-MS/MS based secondary metabolomics methodologies (mostly non-targeted comparative metabolomics) in the fields of marine natural product drug discovery and marine chemical ecology. Previous post-doctoral experience in metabolomics tools and statistical analyses is highly desired.


The holder of the post will participate in several on-going projects on marine invertebrates, marine plants and microorganisms. Interactions across a broad range of scientific disciplines with other research groups at GEOMAR, Kiel University and external collaborators will be expected. The successful candidate will be involved in equipment maintenance, new method development/validation, supervision of postgraduate/undergraduate students and preparations of third-party funding proposals.


Candidates with strong track records of accomplishment in terrestrial plant, terrestrial microbe secondary metabolomics are highly encouraged to apply, provided they have sufficient skills and experience.
