Postdoctoral Research Associate, Met ID


  • Identification of drug metabolites using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry, NMR, and other analytical methodologies. 
  • Elucidation of metabolic pathways involves the identification and quantification of metabolites in biological matrices (e.g., blood, plasma, excreta) using HPLC with radioactivity detection and/or LC-MS/MS. 
  • Conduct in vivo and in vitro metabolism studies. 
  • Handle radio-labeled materials (e.g., 3H, 14C). 
  • Implements new techniques and instrumentation to improve technical operations.
  • Prepares scientific reports that document the analytical results and interpretation for the identification of drug metabolites. 
  • Authors scientific papers, which are published in peer reviewed journals, and presented in scientific meetings. 
  • Collaborate with other scientists in a team to support metabolism studies. 
  • Knowledge of in-vitro and in-vivodrug metabolism processes and related bioanalytical techniques.
