Professor Tao Huan’s laboratory in the Department of Chemistry at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, BC, Canada) is looking for a postdoctoral associate to work on metabolomics and mass spectrometry research projects. The Huan lab mainly focuses on the synergistic development of analytical chemistry and bioinformatics for metabolomics and its applications in biological research. Currently, the Huan lab is equipped with a UHPLC-QTOF MS and a UHPLC-QqQ MS with both regular ESI source and nano ESI source. The Huan lab also has access to Compute Canada high-performance servers for developing bioinformatic programs. Since joining UBC in 2018, The Huan lab has published 18 research papers (July 2018 - September 2020) in high impact journals, including Nature Chemical Biology, Cell Metabolism, and Analytical Chemistry.
The applicant must hold a Ph.D. degree in a Chemistry, Life Science, Computer Science or Bioinformatics discipline, and has experience in metabolomics and mass spectrometry.
The position will be funded for two years initially, with potential for extension. The candidate will be expected to apply for additional external postdoctoral funding (e.g., NSERC, Mitacs, Killam Scholarship, etc.) and assist in writing other grant applications.
Interested applicants should send a CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
