Position Title: Postdoctoral fellow 
Job Overview: The Exposure Science lab of the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute is recruiting for an early year postdoctoral fellow to conduct research related to quantitative studies of exposure and metabolism.  Candidates should be comfortable working at the Drexel Autism Institute with the understanding that the Institute is a multidisciplinary institute emphasizing public health science approaches.  Candidates will design, develop, and conduct research on preventable causes of autism.  They will receive mentoring on general scientific research with an emphasis on liquid chromatography-high resolution mass spectrometry and advanced (bio)analytical chemistry.  Independence to pursue their own lines of research will be encouraged in addition to the research directions of the laboratory.


Qualifications: The successful candidate should hold a PhD or equivalent degree in biomedical sciences, completed in the last two years.  Experience working both independently and under direction is also critical.  Ideally, the candidate should have some experience with quantitative liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry applied to complex biological specimens (but this is not a pre-requisite).  Demonstrated capability in bioinformatics will be considered favorably.  Individuals with a record of successful funding and/or a proven interest in autism risk factors are especially encouraged to apply.
Essential functions:
-Develop FDA and EPA guidance compliant liquid chromatography-high resolution mass spectrometry methods for detection of molecules of interest
-Work in a collaborative and interdisciplinary environment
-Maintain excellent lab citizenship
-Develop standard operating procedures for junior staff
-Design, conduct, and communicate technically complex experiments
-Contribute to the intellectual environment of the institute
-Others as assigned
