Postdoctoral Fellow in Chemical Food Safety

A postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Food Science at Cornell University for a highly-motivated individual with strong interests in chemical food safety, environmental toxicology, and/or study of endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs).

We use variety of species including fish and rodents to screen for and study the effect of toxic compounds in foods, beverages, and the environment and to understand molecular mechanisms underlying adverse effects of EDCs. Examples of current research interests of my lab are following:

1.Toxicity of emerging contaminants found in food including ‘obesogens’
2.Thyroid hormone disrupting compounds and their mechanism of toxicity
3.Complex mixtures of toxic compounds in food and water
4.Effect of EDCs at critical developmental life stages in humans and animals

Individuals interested in the above topics are encouraged to apply.

Previous experience in toxicology is preferred and extensive expertise in at least one of the following areas is required: 1) molecular biology techniques, 2) bioinformatics, 3) histological techniques, or 4) liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry or gas chromatography-mass spectrometry methods. Experience working with zebrafish will be a plus.

The initial appointment will be for 1 year, with possibility of renewal contingent upon satisfactory progress and funding availability.

Interested applicants should submit CV, a cover letter that contains research experience and interests together with names of three references to the PI:
