Research program title
Lipidomics and lipid mediators in inflammation
This research program will focus on the development of objective molecular biomarkers in vascular health or nutrition depending on candidate's interests. Successful candidate will be responsible to design, execute, interpret and validate targeted and untargeted lipidomics studies for biomarker discovery using liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry. He/she will implement new lipidomics workflows for the analysis of biofluids and tissues, including in vivo lipidomics and large-scale profiling. He/she will lead the identification of lipids of interest using complementary techniques and/or integrate lipidomics data with other multi-omic and clinical measurements. He/she will collaborate with clinical researchers and communicate findings with multidisciplinary scientific teams.
Academic qualifications required
- PhD in Chemistry, Biochemistry or related discipline.
- Strong publication and presentation record.
- Established expertise in separation science and high resolution mass spectrometry.
- Expertise in lipidomics, lipid biology, method validation, and biomarker discovery is a strong asset.
