Postdoctoral Fellowship

A postdoctoral fellowship is available in the Naviaux Lab at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine. The successful applicant will join an active mass spec lab to study the metabolomic and exposomic features of a number of chronic complex disorders. Current projects include autism, myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), Lyme disease, chronic pain syndromes like fibromyalgia, autonomic disorders like POTS, autoimmune disorders like PANS, and PANDAS, and several others. The lab is fundamentally interested in the mechanisms of chronic illness, the healing cycle, and the role of chemical changes in our food chain, water, and air as contributors to this growing problem. If there is an interest, additional studies may involve the systematic screening of natural products from rainforest and ocean ecosystems for novel drug candidates. This position will receive bioinformatic support from a group of talented computational biologists and digital graphic artists who are developing new methods to visualize the metabolic networks that define health and disease. The duration of the fellowship is typically 2-4 years. Please send CV and arrange for 2 letters of reference to be sent to: naviaux@ucsd.edu.
