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.
About the Lab:
Our research is focused on the biochemical toxicology of dietary and environmental genotoxicants, as well as endogenous electrophiles that damage protein and DNA. Our long-term objectives are to understand the etiological roles of chemicals, and implement chemical markers and state-of-the-art mass spectrometry methods for use in molecular epidemiology studies that seek to understand the origin of human cancer for which an environmental cause is suspected.
Doctoral Degree-required, preferred field of study analytical science, biology, biochemistry, chemistry, or related field.
Experience with Mass Spectrometry instrumentation; GC-MS and/ or LCMS-MS and chemical derivatization.
Extensive experience on operating and maintaining different mass spec instruments and data analysis software.
This candidate should have a working knowledge of qualitative and quantitative analysis of biomarkers, trace-level analysis of biomolecules in vivo, and cell culture experience is preferred.
Excellent written and oral communication skills.
Strong computer skills and experience in generating graphical outputs of data for reports and publications.
The candidate must be organized and work diligently to meet timelines.
