Position: Postdoctoral Researcher - Mass Spectrometry Data Analysis of Ecometabolomics Datasets
Institution: Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena
Location: Jena, Thüringen, Germany
Duties: The aim of project is to support scientist of the Molecular Interaction Ecology (MIE) research group who are analyzing samples on our metabolomics platform in the analysis of their samples and the acquired data. The successful candidate will operate our LC-qToFMS system, process the acquired data and prepare them for publication in a collaborative manner. Job description: analyzing samples on our metabolomics platform with emphasis on quality control, data processing and compound classification/structural identification; supporting MSc/PhD students and scientists doing metabolomics in the MIE research group at iDiv; optimizing and writing protocols for metabolomics analyses and data processing
Requirements: PhD degree in (bio)chemistry, plant sciences or biology with emphasis on (plant)metabolomics or phytochemistry or equivalent. hands-on experience with (plant) metabolomic analyses and metabolomic data processing. experience in mass spectrometry (e.g. LC-qToFMS, preferably Bruker). experience with software packages for processing of (plant) metabolomic datasets, e.g. XCMS, Camera. excellent knowledge of the English language in speaking and writing, evidenced by your publication record
   
Text: 10/2018 - Postdoctoral researcher on the projekt "Mass spectrometry data analysis of ecometabolomics datasets" (iDiv) The German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) Halle-Jena-Leipzig is one of two National Research Centres funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). It is located in the city of Leipzig and jointly hosted by the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU), the Friedrich Schiller University Jena (FSU), the University Leipzig (UL), and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ). Furthermore, it is supported by the Max Planck Society, the Leibniz Association, the Klaus Tschira Foundation and the Free State of Saxony. Its central mission is to promote theory-driven synthesis and data-driven theory in this emerging field. The concept of iDiv encompasses the detection of biodiversity, understanding its emergence, exploring its consequences for ecosystem functions and services, and developing strategies to safeguard biodiversity under global change. Ecometabolomics is an emerging field that aims to implement metabolomics in ecological and biodiversity research. The application of metabolomics in these fields, however, is still limited by a lack of access to metabolomics infrastructure for ecologists and biodiversity researchers. For this reason at iDiv an ecometabolomics platform is has been established. The analysis of data from ecometabolomics experiments depends strongly on the quality of the acquired data and furthermore demands experience in mass spectrometry for further structural elucidation of unknown metabolites. Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena offers the following position at the next possible date at iDiv in Leipzig: Postdoctoral researcher on the project "Mass spectrometry data analysis of ecometabolomics datasets" (limited to 6 months in full time, Salary: Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L) Severely disabled persons are encouraged to apply and will be given preference in the case of equal suitability. The aim of project is to support scientist of the Molecular Interaction Ecology (MIE) research group who are analyzing samples on our metabolomics platform in the analysis of their samples and the acquired data. The successful candidate will operate our LC-qToFMS system, process the acquired data and prepare them for publication in a collaborative manner. Job description: analyzing samples on our metabolomics platform with emphasis on quality control, data processing and compound classification/structural identification supporting MSc/PhD students and scientists doing metabolomics in the MIE research group at iDiv optimizing and writing protocols for metabolomics analyses and data processing preparing metabolomics datasets for statistical analyses in R and uploading in data portals, e.g. Metabolights discussing procedures and projects with the department head and other group members supporting the preparation of scientific publications in internationally peer-reviewed journals sharing of responsibilities for the research facilities and the scientific atmosphere at MIE and iDiv Requirements: a PhD degree in (bio)chemistry, plant sciences or biology with emphasis on (plant)metabolomics or phytochemistry or equivalent hands-on experience with (plant) metabolomic analyses and metabolomic data processing experience in mass spectrometry (e.g. LC-qToFMS, preferably Bruker ) experience with software packages for processing of (plant) metabolomic datasets, e.g. XCMS, Camera excellent knowledge of the English language in speaking and writing, evidenced by your publication record flexible and well organized, hard worker as well as a responsible personality with excellent communication skills Applications with the usual documents (letter of motivation, CV, two addresses of references, PhD, MA/BA/Diploma certificates) in English are accepted until 26.01.2018 with reference number 10/ 2018 via our application portal under https://apply.idiv.de .For queries on the position please contact Dr. Alexander Weinhold under telephone 49 (0) 341 9733163 or email Applying via email is questionable under data protection law.
