NIH Postdoctoral Position in Natural Products Chemistry and Biomedical Research

The Natural Products Chemistry Section in the Laboratory of Bioorganic Chemistry, NIDDK, NIH has a fully funded, full time postdoctoral position available.  Qualified candidates will have:

  • A PhD in chemistry or related field with 3 years' or less of postdoctoral experience
  • Demonstrated experience in natural products isolation and structure elucidation including first author peer-reviewed publications
  • Hands on experience with NMR spectrometers, data interpretation and sample prep
  • Documented experience with chromatogaphic methods and purification of natural products for biological assays
  • Documented experience with Mass Spectrometry, compound identification and data base mining
  • Fluent in spoken and written English
  • Experience writing scientific manuscripts, preparing publication quality figures and rigorous data analysis

This position is located on the main NIH campus in Bethesda, MD. The NIH offers a vibrant and collaborative biomedical research setting with outstanding infrastructure and core facilities. In addition to natural products chemistry, preference will be given to candidates with experience in either synthetic chemistry, or molecular biology, genome sequencing and bioinformatics.  The goals of our research include discovery of new antimicrobial natural products and identification of their biological targets or mechanisms of action (for background see https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28837335 , https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28373194 ). Interested candidates should send a C.V. (listing three references) and cover letter to dklbcjobs@niddk.nih.gov .
