Phenome Centre-Birmingham is a new major centre for providing national capability in state-of-the-art metabolic phenotyping (metabolomics) applied to stratified medicine.
The post holder will contribute significantly to the day-to-day operation of the Phenome Centre Birmingham at the University of Birmingham, in particular conducting metabolomics analysis primarily using NMR spectroscopy and secondarily using mass spectrometry.
The successful candidate will assist researchers in fulfilling the research objectives of the centre with a focus on the preparation of biofluid and tissue samples for metabolomics analyses, assisted by liquid handling robots, and the application of both NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry for metabolic phenotyping. Primarily the role is to conduct the sample preparation and data collection for NMR metabolomics studies, in collaboration with researchers, both within, and external to, the university (academic, industry, scientific instrument manufacturers), and secondarily a similar role in mass spectrometry metabolomics. This also includes liaising with and training other scientists.
