The Institute of Molecular Systems Biology at ETH Zurich is inviting applications for a Postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Professor Dr Nicola Zamboni (web).
The group of Dr Zamboni researches the function and regulation of metabolism. It is particularly attracted by:
In its research, the group builds heavily on mass spectrometry for the analysis of the metabolome, the lipidome, and metabolic fluxes by stable isotopes. Beyond mere data generation, much of the current research activities are dedicated to formal integration and interpretation of omics data. These include a variety of computational methods ranging from statistics to deep learning and probabilistic graphical models.
The Zamboni lab hosts the Clinical Metabolomics Analysis Center, which is a technology hub affiliated with the Swiss initiatives on personalized health (PHRT, www.sfa-phrt.ch). Thereby, it is tightly embedded in numerous projects and collaborations aiming at integrating deep molecular data into clinical decisions. Here, the focus of the Center is on democratizing metabolomics and lipidomics analyses for broad adoption in clinical research and diagnostic data streams. A speciality of the group is the development of high-throughput untargeted LC-MS methods. These are critical to swiftly screening large cohorts of clinical samples, drug libraries, or genetic mutants. With a steadily growing volume of samples and studies, novel opportunities emerge. These opportunities include learning across studies, implementing novel MS2 fragmentation strategies that maximize the amount of non-redundant information obtained in each study, aggregating different types of information for the task of structural elucidation, and exploiting novel types of fragmentation technology.
The Zamboni lab is seeking a postdoctoral fellow with strong computational skills and interests to strengthen developments in these forward-looking areas.
