We have a post-doctoral position in Metabolomics available IMMEDIATELY in my group at GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel (Germany). The post is initially for 1 year, but can be extended to up to three years upon mutual agreement.
We search for a candidate who has solid metabolomics background and publication track record in MS/MS-based molecular networking on natural products. We envisage to work mostly on (marine) microbial NPs.
May I please ask you to circulate this email to potentially interested people, who can contact me immediately by email (email@example.com) and send me 1. CV and publication list, 2. Contact information for three references, 3. A cover letter explaining interest in the position and career goals.
Working language in the group is English. We offer excellent infrastructure, a highly vibrant, international and innovative research environment, access to international cruises and interactions/collaborations with leading scientists in the field.
GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel is one of the world’s leading institutions in marine research. The research unit Marine Natural Product Chemistry / GEOMAR Centre for Marine Biotechnology is equipped with state-of-the-art chemical facilities including in-house UPLC-QTOF-MS coupled with DESI Imaging Mass Spectrometry, HPLC-DAD-MS, HPLC-HRMS, GC-MS, automated extraction systems such as Accelerated Solvent Extraction (ASE) and Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE), FT-IR, polarimeter and related databases, as well as excellent microbiology/biotechnology facilities and over 70 running in vitro biological assays. Our in-house microbial culturing facilities span from small (1 L) to large-scale (300 L fermenter), as well as access to sequencing facilities. GEOMAR has full access to high-resolution (cryo-) NMR facilities at the Chemistry Department of Kiel University. We lead or participate several large EU or national research projects.
