招聘简介:

  博士后学者–85852

  组织:JG联合基因组研究所

  伯克利实验室的联合基因组研究所部门为博士后学者开放。微生物群落是地球上主要的生命形式,对促进植物生长至关重要。越来越多的人转向有益的微生物,以实现可持续农业和生物产品的生产。次级代谢物使微生物群内的关键环境适应和交流成为可能。不幸的是,这些极其多样的代谢物的生物合成和功能常常被人们所知甚少。博士后研究员将作为一个跨职能团队的一部分,通过挖掘IMG中>50B的基因来探索地球的二级代谢组分,以识别新的天然产物生物合成途径,然后表达和表征产物,特别关注高通量代谢组分特征。

  Postdoctoral Scholar – 85852

  Organization: JG-Joint Genome Institute

  Berkeley Lab’s Joint Genome Institute Division has an opening for a Postdoctoral Scholar. Microbial communities comprise the dominant life form on earth and are critical to promoting plant growth. Increasing we are turning to beneficial microbes for sustainable agriculture and production of bioproducts. Secondary metabolites enable critical environmental adaptations and communication within microbiomes. Unfortunately, the biosynthesis and functions of these incredibly diverse metabolites are often poorly understood. The post-doctoral fellow will work as part of a cross-functional team exploring Earth’s Secondary Metabolome by mining the >50B genes in IMG to identify novel natural product biosynthesis pathways and then express and characterize the products with a specific focus on high throughput metabolomic characterization.

  What You Will Do:

  • Collaborate with team to design experiments.

  • Identify and apply effective metabolite extraction approaches

  • Develop and apply innovative mass spectrometry based metabolite profiling approaches to characterize novel secondary metabolites.

  • Analyze and integrate results.

  • Publish scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals and present findings at seminars and conferences.

  • Collaborate with other members of the program project research team

  What is Required:

  • Ph.D. within the last three years in chemistry, biochemistry, chemical biology, environmental microbiology, plant biology, chemical engineering, bioengineering, or related field

  • Strong background in analytical instrumentation, preferably mass spectrometry.

  • Strong background in microbial physiology and metabolism.

  • Specific training in natural product chemistry or related fields

  • Experience in extracting and analyzing secondary metabolites / natural products

  • Proven ability to perform independent research and organize data for publication and presentations.

  • Demonstrated ability to interact effectively with technical and scientific staff.

  • Ability to work independently and in a team environment.

  • Demonstrated ingenuity in dealing with complex problems.

  • Demonstrated strength and efficiency in technical writing.

  • Strong publication record

  Additional Desired Qualifications:

  • LC/MS/MS experience.

  • NMR experience.

  • Programing experience.

  • Strong track record in developing innovative experimental approaches.

  The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.

  Notes:

  • This is a full time, 2 years, postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs. You must have less than 3 years paid postdoctoral experience. Salary for Postdoctoral positions depends on years of experience post-degree.

  • Full-time, M-F, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.

  • This position is represented by a union for collective bargaining purposes.

  • Salary will be predetermined based on postdoctoral step rates.

  • This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.

  • Work will primarily be performed at DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI) — 2800 Mitchell Dr., Walnut Creek, CA.
