The Opportunity

Denali Therapeutics has an exciting opportunity for a summer intern in the Metabolomics/Lipidomics group within Developmental Sciences. During the 10 – 12 week internship, the individual will assist in optimization of mass spectrometric techniques to assess 13C stable isotope metabolic labelling experiments. This is a hands-on laboratory position with an exciting opportunity to learn novel analytical techniques and computational skills to assess CNS cellular metabolism in a dynamic start-up environment.


Work under supervision of Denali scientists to optimize LC-MS/MS-based metabolic flux assays
Execute LCMS-Flux analytical workflows, analyze and interpret 13C metabolite labelling patterns for flux quantitation
Prepare presentations and communicate results to internal collaborators

Position requirements:

Enrolled in a PhD program in Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry or related field
Proficient in basic laboratory skills, and record keeping
Previous hands-on laboratory experience with LC-HRMS, & QQQ MS instrumentation, metabolite/lipid extraction is preferred
Strong computational and statistical skills, a plus
Energetic, self-motivated with ability to work in a highly collaborative environment
Demonstrated ability to organize, analyze and interpret experimental data
Excellent oral and written communication skills
