A PhD position is currently available in applied metabolomics for a research endeavor funded by the Swiss Centre for Applied Human Toxicology (SCAHT). The goal of this PhD project is to investigate the toxicological effects of drug combination therapies on the metabolic pathways of different tumor types and cell models. For this purpose, the PhD student will learn and apply both cell culture techniques and metabolomic approaches to understand how cells adapt their metabolism when exposed to different toxicant combinations at low doses.

A metabolomics data analysis engineer position is open at the INRAE Human Nutrition Unit in Saint-Genès-Champanelle. This team develops research focused on understanding nutrition-health interactions, in order to prevent major metabolic disorders and dysfunctions associated with aging. The position is available on the Metabolic Exploration Platform (MEP), which is one of the 4 founding members of the infrastructure of excellence, MetaboHUB. The primary mission will be to design and organize the processing of metabolomic data from systems epidemiology studies.
