Postdoctoral Investigator Position in Ocean Proteomics and Metabolomics

The C-CoMP-affiliated Kujawinski and Saito labs at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are seeking one or more postdoctoral researchers in the area of environmental ‘omics, specifically in the field of linking metabolomics and proteomics. We use analytical chemistry to explore the intersection of microbial biology and chemistry within marine systems. This postdoctoral position will be shared between one lab focused on proteomics (Saito lab) and one lab focused on metabolomics (Kujawinski lab). Potential projects include: examining metabolites and proteins from a model marine phytoplankton, linking existing ‘omics datasets to examine the intersection of proteins and metabolites in the subtropical north Atlantic. The successful applicant will be trained in all aspects of environmental sample analysis, including sample processing, mass spectrometry, and data analysis. A PhD in chemical oceanography, biogeochemistry, analytical chemistry or a related field is required. Experience with mass spectrometry, metabolomics, proteomics, and downstream data analysis as well as knowledge of programming tools such as MATLAB, Python, or R would be advantageous. The position is available for one year, renewable for a maximum of two years. Review of applications will begin February 1, 2023 and continue until one position is filled. Inquiries should be addressed to or

Postdoctoral Position in Microbial Ecology/Metabolomics

The Moran and Edison labs at the University of Georgia are together seeking a postdoctoral scientist with interest in the ecological metabolomics of marine microbes, available June 1, 2023. The position is affiliated with the Center for Chemical Currencies of a Microbial Planet (C-CoMP), an NSF Science and Technology Center that focuses on microbes, metabolites, and processes that determine the fate of surface ocean carbon through collaborative and multi-disciplinary teams. Current projects available for study include, but are not limited to:

  •  Characterization of marine microbial exometabolites
  •  Discovery of microbial genes mediating carbon flux
  •  Identification of factors influencing microbial carbon use efficiency
  •  Application of continuous in vivo metabolism techniques to marine microbes

Minimum requirements include a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline; preferred qualifications include experience in metabolomics or microbial biology (genomics, biochemistry, energetics, or ecology). Applications consisting of a letter of interest, CV, and names of three references can be sent to, and will be accepted until the successful candidate is identified. Further information about the Moran lab can be found at, and about the Edison lab at Questions can be directed to Mary Ann Moran ( or Art Edison (
