Research Support - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
Our laboratory carries out research supported by the National Cancer Institute. The research focuses on mechanisms and prevention of cancer caused by tobacco products and environmental exposures. We study metabolism and DNA damage by toxicants and carcinogens in tobacco products and the general environment. This research requires expertise in organic synthesis, analytical organic chemistry, and related areas. Mass spectrometry is extensively applied in this research resulting in quantitative analyses and identification of DNA damage.
50% synthesis of organic compounds to confirm structural assignments and provide material for biological studies
50% : analysis of metabolites and DNA adducts of carcinogens and toxicants using liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry and related techniques.
Requried Qualifications: Ph.D. in organic chemistry, biochemistry, or a closely related field. Desire to work as part of a team investigating chemical aspects of cancer prevention. Knowledge and experience in organic synthesis and analytical organic chemistry.
Preferred: Experience in mass spectrometry, high performance liquid chromatography, and related techniques.
