Metabolomics has become an indispensable tool in natural product drug discovery for dereplication, chemical profiling and biological activity assessments of small molecules. Comparative metabolomics is a powerful technique in chemical ecology for analysing the impact of fluctuations in marine habitats. GEOMAR are 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 untargeted 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 position is available for a funding period of two years, starting as soon as possible. The salary depends on qualification and could be up to the class E13 TVöD-Bund of the German tariff for public employees. This is a full-time position.
