Postdoctoral Fellow – Ina Nemet Lab
Job posting number: #7126152 (Ref:ccf17830343)
Posted: February 20, 2023
Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
The Nemet lab focuses on understanding the communication between gut microorganisms and their host. In particular, we study how microbial metabolic pathways contribute to overall changes in host physiology, and cardiometabolic disease susceptibility. The laboratory works on identifying novel pathways of clinical relevance with mechanistic links to human diseases by use of metabolomics (mass spectrometry) and clinical studies in tandem with animal studies.
Candidates with experience in analytical chemistry, mass spectrometry, targeted and untargeted metabolomics or a related field are encouraged to apply. Experience of using and developing stable isotope tracer techniques and applying them to mouse metabolic research is desirable but not required.
