A research project to investigate the metabolism of biologically active secondary metabolites requires a postdoctoral fellow with a recent Ph. D. in Organic Chemistry or related field, a strong background in organic synthesis and extensive experience with HPLC analysis (diode array and mass detection). Additionally, experience in developing biological assays to determine bioactivity (antifungal, antibacterial, phytotoxic, cytotoxic) of secondary metabolites is an asset. The successful applicants must have proven expertise in spectroscopic techniques necessary for chemical structure elucidation, particularly modern high field NMR spectroscopy and LC-MS. The required qualifications should be evidenced by a strong international publication record in the field.
