Division of Nutritional
A Postdoctoral Associate
position is open in the Johnson lab to study how dietary intake of bioactive
lipids and production of bioactive lipids from the gut microbiome can influence
mammalian phenotypes. The Johnson lab
uses genetic, genomic, and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS)
based-lipidomic approaches to understand lipid-dependent host-microbe
interactions. More information about
research in the Johnson Lab can be found at www.johnsonlab.nutrition.cornell.edu .
The candidate will be expected to have expertise in molecular biology,
biochemistry, and/or bioinformatics in order to conduct research investigating
how bioactive lipids influence host-microbe interactions in human tissue
culture, mouse, and human systems. The
initial appointment is for a year with the opportunity to extend based on
Anticipated Division of Time:
15% Data Analysis, 5%Writing
Ph.D in Biochemistry,
Chemistry, Molecular biology, Microbiology, or related fields. A
successful candidate should have experience operating a triple quadrupole
LC-MS system (or a similar system). Prior experience with lipid biochemistry and/or
bioinformatics is preferred but not required.
