The postdoctoral fellow will perform training in Dr. Nathaniel Snyder’s laboratory in the Center for Metabolic Disease Research at Temple University School of Medicine. The successful candidate should hold a PhD or equivalent degree in biomedical sciences. Co-mentored positions with Drs. Kathryn Wellen (University of Pennsylvania), Katherine Aird (University of Pittsburgh), and Jennifer Adibi (University of Pittsburgh) are also available in the laboratory and interested candidates should indicate this in their cover letter. Likewise, individuals eligible for administrative supplements for training are encouraged to apply and should indicate this in their cover letters. Demonstrated capability in bioinformatics, demonstrated scientific writing skills, comfort in working with primary human biospecimens, and successful ability to pursue funding will be considered favorably. Ability and desire to bring new skills as well as diversity in thought, background, and training to the laboratory will also be considered favorably. Experience working both independently and under direction is also critical.
Ideally, the candidate should have some experience with quantitative liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry applied to biological specimens (but this is not a pre-requisite). Alternative expertise ( including but not limited to CRISPR-Cas9, qualitative LC-MS for structural elucidation, animal work involving stable isotope tracing and metabolic cages, biochemical methods for enzymatic studies) with a desire to apply quantitative LC-MS is equally ideal. Training will include performing the following duties on a full-time basis. The fellow will perform scientific experiments within the research laboratory. They will develop independent research projects focused on studies of (ideally but not necessarily metazoan) metabolism, isotope tracing, and/or targeted and untargeted metabolomics/ lipidomics/ exposomics in addition to designing, developing, and conducting research with a wide range of collaborators. The fellow will be responsible for data collection, maintaining research records, results analysis, manuscript drafting, and grant writing. The fellow will be given opportunities to train junior staff and students in research methods, and to attend and present their data at national and/or international conferences.
