Postdoctoral Research Scholar

The Postdoctoral Scientist will assist the Principal Investigator (Dr. Andrew Neilson) in the Plants for Human Health Institute by leading and conducting research, general laboratory management, and mentoring graduate students as appropriate. This will include conducting advanced independent and/or directed research with a focus on the interaction between plant-derived phytochemicals, the human microbiome, and nutrition/health.

Major research thrusts will involve 1) how phytochemicals are metabolized into microbial metabolites that may modulate the onset of metabolic syndrome, and 2) how individual genetic differences predict phytochemical efficacy for disease prevention, among others. The majority of work will be performed using 3 key research tools: 1) rodent models of nutrition/disease (including models of genetic diversity), 2) mammalian and/or bacterial cell culture or in vitro fecal fermentations, and 3) instrumental analysis (particularly LC-MS/MS). This will include study design, collection, and analysis of data, ensuring the quality of data, basic statistical analysis, generating tables and figures for presentation (in manuscripts and conference presentations) as it relates to impacts on human health, participation in preparation and submission manuscripts, reports and grant proposals.
