Postdoc Position in Metabolic Regulation and Lipidomics, involves developing and applying technology for monitoring enzyme expression levels

A postdoctoral position is available in the Ejsing Lab at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark. Invited are applications from outstanding candidates with a keen interest in studying regulation of whole-body lipid metabolism using state-of-the-art lipidomics and proteomics technology.

The project is an interdisciplinary collaboration with partners in industry and clinical settings.

We are seeking a motivated and technically skilled person with a strong background in mass spectrometry-based lipidomics, metabolomics or proteomics; especially targeted quantitative analysis. It is preferred that the applicant has experience in data management and bioinformatics/computational data analysis as well as handling samples from rodents and humans. Effective communication skills, a strong work ethic, ability to work both independently and in a collaborative group environment are required. Candidates must hold a doctoral degree.
