Opening For Postdoctoral Scientist - The Francis Crick Institute

 A three-year postdoctoral position (Career Development Fellowship) is available in the area of metabolomics in the Metabolomics Core in the Division of Physiology & Metabolism currently at NIMR in London. NIMR is one of the founding institutes of the new Francis Crick Institute. Opening in 2015 at St Pancras in central London, the Crick will have 1,250 researchers. Its goal will be to understand the basic biology underlying human health. It is supported by the Medical Research Council, Cancer Research UK, the Wellcome Trust, University College London, Imperial College London and King’s College London. For further information on NIMR and the Crick, see: http://crick.ac.uk.
 
You will support the mass spectrometry and analytical informatics activities associated with a state-of-the-art Metabolomics facility. This will involve operation of hyphenated mass spectrometry instrumentation (including liquid chromatography- and gas chromatography mass spectrometry), complex data processing, statistical analysis and the development of new experimental designs, analytical tools, and programming. Opportunities for independent and team-oriented research will be provided.
 
Experience with mass spectrometry is essential, and workflows involving mass spectrometry-derived metabolomics data, including stable isotope labelling techniques, and a background in metabolism are highly desirable. You should have (or be in the final stages of completion of) a PhD in an area related to mass spectrometry, analytical chemistry, bioinformatics, statistics, mathematics, or physics. Informal enquiries can be addressed to:
 
Dr James I. MacRae  (jmacrae@nimr.mrc.ac.uk) or
Dr. Alex P. Gould (agould@nimr.mrc.ac.uk)
 
If you would like to apply for this role, please submit your CV and a covering letter, explaining your motivation and suitability for this role to Bharkavy Gajendra bgajend@nimr.mrc.ac.uk.
