Study Changes in Metabolism using Mass Spectrometry

Website Institute for Vascular Signalling

At the Institute for Vascular Signalling, Center for Molecular Medicine at the Faculty of Medicine, Goethe University, there is an open Post-doc position (E13 TV-G-U) to study changes in metabolism (using mass spectrometry). The position is available from 1st March 2023 for 2 years, with possibility for prolongation. The classification is based on the job characteristics of the collective agreement applicable to Goethe University (TV-G-U).

The position requires the following:

•       Participation in a service project in the framework of a recently funded Collaborative Research Centre (SFB 1531).

•       Collection of experimental data, analysis and documentation of results and preparation of material for publication.

•       Deep knowledge of targeted metabolite analyses as well as untargeted metabolomic profiling.

•       Expertise in chromatography (LC and GC), mass spectrometry and the field of metabolomics.

•       Talent and interest in method development.

We offer:

•       A well-equipped mass spectrometry lab, including UPLC, nano LC and GC systems coupled to single and triple quadrupoles, and high-resolution mass spectrometers in an internationally recognized group (

•       National and international networking – The Institute is part of the CardioPulmonary Institute ( and the German Center for Cardiovascular Research (


•       A completed, very good doctoral degree in biology, biotechnology, molecular medicine or an equivalent discipline.

•       Experience in LC-MS/MS and/or GC-MS metabolomic analyses.

•       Good self-organization and team working abilities.

•       Excellent written and spoken English.

Applications with the usual documents (in a single PDF file) and the names and contact details of 3 referees should be submitted in electronic form within 4 weeks of the appearance of this advertisement to Prof. Dr. Ingrid Fleming (
