Postdoctoral Position in Isotope-Based Metabolomics

Vanderbilt University

Nashville, TN, United States

A postdoctoral position is available immediately to develop and test novel software tools that automate the data processing steps required to extract and analyze isotope enrichment information from large-scale, high-resolution mass spectrometry datasets. These software tools will be used by metabolomics researchers to profile metabolic network dynamics using stable isotopes. Motivated candidates with experience in isotope tracer experiments and metabolomics data analysis are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will work closely with a staff programmer who is skilled in open-source software development. The position requires good communication and project management skills to implement the desired software features and to test and validate the software using experimental datasets collected in the Young lab and other collaborating labs. The Young lab is engaged in a variety of research projects that relate to metabolic diseases and biomanufacturing, with ample opportunities for high-impact publications.
