Livermore, California Show Map Salary: Open NOTE: This is a
two-year Postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of extension
to a maximum of three years. The Biosciences and Biotechnology
Division (BBTD) of the Physical and Life Sciences (PLS) Directorate
at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is seeking a candidate
for a postdoctoral researcher position in the area of quantitative
metabolism. The research will focus on developing methods for the
quantitation of metabolic products and pathways in biological
systems using radio-labeled precursors measured by Accelerator Mass
Spectrometry (AMS). Postdoctoral Researchers at LLNL should expect
to continue to receive training in performing independent research
that is complementary to the work of other members of their
department, while also participating in multidisciplinary projects.
The selected candidate will work with a dynamic interdisciplinary
team of scientists and will report to the Human Health Sciences
Group in the Biosciences and Biotechnology Division. Essential
- Participate in the development and validation of new methods to
quantify metabolites in biological systems using AMS- specifically
coupling mass spectrometry analysis with AMS analysis for Parallel
Accelerator Mass and Mass Spectrometry (PAMMS) analysis.
- Conduct research on the biological mechanisms and metabolism in
cellular systems, animal models or humans using radiolabeled
substrates and accelerator mass spectrometry.
- Administer carbon-14 labeled compounds to cell culture and
animals; prepare samples for AMS analysis
- Analyze samples for carbon-14 content using an Accelerator Mass
- Organize, analyze, and present data from research at seminars,
technical meetings, national and international conferences.
- Publish research results in peer-reviewed scientific or
- Collaborate with others in a multidisciplinary team environment
both at LLNL and in other national laboratories and universities to
accomplish research goals.
- Perform other duties as assigned.
- PhD in Chemical Biology, pharmaceutical chemistry, Analytical
chemistry, Biochemistry, or related field with emphasis on
quantitative analytical measurements.
- Experience with analytical chemical methods for quantifying
- Experience with method development using analytical
instrumentation such as Mass Spectrometry.
- Ability to understand and analyze data produced by quantitative
- Experience in experimental design using complex analytical
instrumentation to understand cellular systems.
- Proficient verbal and written communication and interpersonal
skills to collaborate effectively in a multidisciplinary team
environment and present and explain technical information.Desired
- Experience utilizing radioisotopes in biological research
Internal Number: 3743990000022062 About Lawrence Livermore National
Laboratory For more than 60 years, the Lawrence Livermore National
Laboratory has applied science and technology to make the world a
safer place.Livermore's defining responsibility is ensuring the
safety, security and reliability of the nation's nuclear deterrent.
Yet LLNL's mission is broader than stockpile stewardship, as
dangers ranging from nuclear proliferation and terrorism to energy
shortages and climate change threaten national security and global
stability. The Laboratory's science and engineering are being
applied to achieve breakthroughs for counterterrorism and
nonproliferation, defense and intelligence, energy and
environmental security. More Jobs from This Employer BACK TO TOP
