Postdoctoral position at LLNL

Dr. Ken Turteltaub contacted me about the availability of a postdoctoral position at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The position involves working as part of an integrated multi-disciplinary team of biochemists, toxicologists, chemists and physicists to study regulatory and metabolic processes in eukaryotic cells using the technique of accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS). The candidate will be involved in developing and applying methods for the quantitate analysis of metabolites and metabolic pathways in cells, animal models, and humans using radio-labeled precursors along with AMS analysis. If interested, please contact Dr. Ken Turteltaub at or Dr. Graham Bench at

Gan, LaRive and Yan Named AAAS Fellows

Our congratulations to ETOX faculty members, Jay Gan, Cynthia Larive and Yushan Yan who were recently named Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Jay was recognized "For distinguished contributions to the field of soil and environmental chemistry, particularly for understanding environmental fate and risks of pesticides and for efforts in resource protection."; Cynthia "For significant contributions in applying NMR diffusion measurements to characterize complex mixtures, polydisperse samples, and ligand-protein interactions."; and, Yushan "For distinguished contributions to the engineering of zeolite thin films and their applications to semiconductors, aerospace and space exploration." Our congratualtions to Jay, Cynthia and Yushan for this nice recognition. More details can be found at the UCR Newsroom.
