Job Title: Research Laboratory Manager (Exposomics and Mass Spectrometry)
Job Number: 108060
Organization: Emory University - Rollins School of Public Health
Posted: 3/3/2023
Type: Full-Time
Classification: Laboratory
Industry: Academic Institutions
Number of Openings: 1
Location: Atlanta,  GA    USA
Position Description: The Comprehensive Laboratory for Untargeted Exposome Science (CLUES) in the Gangarosa Department of Environmental Health at Emory University seeks applications for a Laboratory Manager position to support research operations and projects focused on untargeted profiling of microplastics, endogenous and exogenous metabolites, nutrients, and toxins in human biofluids and other matrices. We are an internationally recognized laboratory in the emerging field of exposome research and provide ample opportunities for training in cutting edge high-resolution mass spectrometry methods that explore exciting research questions at the interface of environment, multi-omics and human health. The Laboratory Manager will oversee daily operation of research activities, including liquid chromatography high-resolution mass spectrometry (LC-HRMS) or gas chromatography high-resolution mass spectrometry (GC-HRMS) platforms that apply omic-based metabolic phenotyping methods for precision medicine and exposome research projects. They will be responsible for project management, assuring project timelines are being met, tracking and purchasing laboratory supplies, overseeing research progress, expense recording, instrument maintenance, sample preparation and analysis, and managing sample inventories. Candidates will have opportunities for training and hands on experience in automated biological sample preparation, operation of LC-HRMS and GC-HRMS platforms, chemical identification and confirmation, processing of untargeted HRMS data, and method optimization. Areas of study include environmental determinants of non- communicable diseases (cancer and other metabolic diseases), measuring complex exposures of emerging concern, including microplastics, PFAS, and e-waste, and establishing OMIC-based strategies for universal chemical surveillance and bioeffect monitoring. The facility currently houses two LC-HRMS (Thermo Exploris 120 Orbitraps) and three GC-HRMS (2 Thermo GC Q-Exactive and 1 Thermo GC-Exploris Orbitraps) and has plans to strengthen its technology base further. The exposome provides a new paradigm for understanding how complex exposures drive adverse health outcomes, and candidates will have the opportunity to be at the forefront of technological and data science methods for this emerging field of research.

Responsibilities include:

Assist with preparing and analyzing biological samples with LC-HRMS or GC-HRMS.

Receipt, cataloging and inventory of biological samples

Ordering laboratory supplies and consumables.

Implement and oversee laboratory safety procedures and provide training to new members.

Managing laboratory personnel and resources to ensure successful and timely completion of research projects.

Track laboratory spending and finances.

Assist with preparation of grant applications, reports and manuscripts.

Oversee daily evaluation of instrument performance and QA/QC, with ability to troubleshoot if results do not satisfy pass/fail criteria.

Method development, verification, and establishing assay suitability criteria.

Summarization and reporting of targeted and untargeted HRMS data.

Provide weekly updates on study progress to the laboratory director.

Perform biological sample aliquoting and shipping as needed.

Support laboratory activities as needed.

Our laboratory is located within the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University. The Rollins School of Public Health is ranked 5th among public health graduate schools by U.S. News & World Report and ranked number 5 in the Blue Ridge Report amongst schools of public health receiving NIH support. The Gangarosa Department of Environmental Health houses researchers with interests spanning Environmental Health, including mechanistic and computational toxicology, genomics, the developmental origins of disease, air pollution, climate change, water, sanitation and hygiene, and environmental epidemiology. Within the department is Emory’s HERCULES Health and Exposome Research center, an NIEHS P30 Environmental Health Support Center and the first Exposome Research Center in the US. The team-science approach in this department provides opportunities to co-author publications with leading collaborators. We offer numerous opportunities for career advancement, including the ability to attend workshops on topics related to the exposome, mass spectrometry and analytical chemistry, and travel to national and international conferences. Work-related experience will be considered in determining level and salary. Interested candidates should apply on our company career site. Please upload a cover letter including a summary of research interests and experience, as well as a curriculum vitae.


A bachelor's degree in a scientific field. Five years of professional research experience. Three years of supervisory experience.


Related master's degree preferred. The ideal candidate for the Laboratory Manager position must exhibit meticulous attention to detail, have excellent written and oral communication abilities, possess strong quantitative laboratory skills, and be familiar with good laboratory practices. Candidates should have at least 5 years wet- lab experience and a degree in chemistry, biochemistry, mass spectrometry, engineering, or other analytical chemistry related fields. Experience with LC- or GC-MS is required. They must also have strong organizational and time management skills, with the ability to work independently, as well as in teams, to meet project timelines.
