About the Job: An experienced analytical mass spectrometrist is sought to develop and validate biomarkers of exposures to environmental and dietary carcinogens, and their DNA adducts in cells and human tissues. The research requires derivatization chemistry for tagging biomarkers to enhance analyte detection by LC/MS or GC/MS and mass spectrometric characterization of biomarkers in complex biological matrices. The candidate is expected to work semi-independently in LC/MS development and validation of DNA adduct biomarkers employing triple quadrupole, ion trap and high resolution MS instruments, and GC/MS to measure volatile toxicants in tobacco smoke.

About Masonic Cancer Center: The Masonic Cancer Center is a collaborative research environment focused on the causes, prevention, detection, and treatment of cancer; applying that knowledge to improve quality of life for patients and survivors; and sharing its discoveries with other scientists, students, professionals, and the community.

About the Lab:  Our research is focused on the biochemical toxicology of dietary and environmental genotoxicants, as well as endogenous electrophiles that damage protein and DNA. Our long-term objectives are to understand the etiological roles of t chemicals, and implement chemical markers and state-of-the-art mass spectrometry methods for use in molecular epidemiology studies that seek to understand the origin of human cancer for which an environmental cause is suspected.
