Location: Lipidomics group of Michal Holčapek, University of Pardubice, Faculty of Chemical Technology, Department of Analytical Chemistry, Czech Republic
Duration: 18 months
Starting date: July 2022 or as soon as possible
The postdoc will work within the framework of the grant project “Prospective study on early pancreatic cancer detection and therapy monitoring using lipidomic profiling by mass spectrometry”” sponsored by the Czech Health Research Council or the grant project “Multidimensional chromatography – mass spectrometry quantitative workflows in detailed characterization of human plasma lipidome” funded by the Czech Science Foundation. The postdoc will learn and use the whole lipidomic workflow, which includes the sample preparation of biological samples using extraction protocols, measurements using ultrahigh-performance liquid chromatography – mass spectrometry (UHPLC/MS) or ultrahigh-performance supercritical fluid chromatography – mass spectrometry (UHPSFC/MS), data processing using our LipidQuant software, statistical evaluation of data using advanced multivariate data analysis tools (e.g., Simca). In case of programming skills in Python, the involvement in the development of a new version of LipidQuant may be considered.
