|Marine Metabolomics Research Technician, University of Florida||bryndandurham||2021-02-13|
The Durham Lab at the University of Florida is currently recruiting a laboratory Research Technician. The start date is flexible, but ideally the successful candidate would begin between April 2021 and June 2021. Research in the Durham Lab (https://www.durham-lab.com) focuses on the molecular ecology and chemistry of environmental microbes. Current projects include exploration of metabolite exchange in marine phytoplankton-bacterial interactions and terrestrial moss-cyanobacterial interactions. The technician will be primarily responsible for processing and analyzing microbial and plant samples using liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS)-metabolomics techniques. In particular, the technician will analyze samples using high-resolution LC-MS system(s) located in the UF’s Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research (www.biotech.ufl.edu) mass spectrometry core facility. Other responsibilities may include microbial cell culture, administration of the lab (e.g., lab safety, chemical inventory, ordering supplies), and LC-MS data analysis. This is a one-year term position with the potential for renewal. We will consider candidates who seek part-time or full-time work, with a minimum commitment of 20 hours per week.
