Under the leadership of Dr George Poulogiannis, we are seeking to appoint a Higher Scientific Officer in Mass Spectrometry, with a particular focus on liquid and gas chromatography-based metabolomics to support and supervise the daily operational aspects of a newly acquired cutting edge metabolomics instrumentation.
The post holder will work in the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR)’s Signalling and Cancer Metabolism Team led by Dr Poulogiannis, and will hold an honorary appointment within the Department of Life Sciences at Imperial College, where they will be applying their expertise to perform targeted and discovery LC- and GC-based metabolomics. The post provides a unique opportunity to establish and operate a transformative high-throughput metabolomics and lipidomics pipeline that will further advance our knowledge of cellular metabolism in disease pathogenesis and ensure that research in this area at the ICR and Imperial remains at the international forefront.
The successful candidate must have a PHD in Mass Spectometry and/ or Analytical Chemistry. They will also be a highly motivated expert in Mass Spectrometry, with a particular focus on liquid and gas chromatography-based metabolomics.
The Signalling & Cancer Metabolism laboratory headed by Dr. George Poulogiannis is a multi-disciplinary group aiming to understand the biochemical basis of metabolic reprogramming underlying cancer growth and progression. The lab is using state of the art molecular and metabolic profiling to identify how tracking the metabolic plasticity and adaptability of tumour cells and their associated stroma can provide the basis for an entirely novel repertoire for cancer diagnosis and therapy.
We encourage all applicants to access the job pack attached for more detailed information regarding this role.
