The Vardi lab is seeking highly skilled and motivated postdoctoral 
candidates with demonstrated expertise in metabolomics to join a new and 
exciting ERC funded project in the field of chemical ecology in the 
context of host-pathogen interactions in the ocean. The project will 
focus on applying metabolic approaches for targeted metabolomics, 
non-targeted metabolic profiling, metabolic fingerprinting and de novo 
identification of novel metabolites that mediate microbial interactions. 
Our laboratory employs state-of-the-art mass spectrometry (including 
high resolution LC-MS, GC-MS) to investigate the metabolic dynamics of 
microbial interactions at sea.

Candidates with a strong background in metabolomics and high-resolution 
mass spectrometry are encouraged to apply. The position involves 
expertise in LC-MS-based metabolomics, developing and validating 
targeted and untargeted metabolomics methods, high competence in 
statistical analyses (PCA/multivariate analyses), bioinformatics tools 
and databases for data analysis, as well as running independent 
metabolomics research projects. Strong publication record on 
metabolomics is preferable.
