The facility currently supports over 300 biochemists and chemists working across a variety of research themes (eg cancer, immunology, Alzheimer's) that require support for proteomic analysis of their samples. This position is for a proteomic mass spectrometry specialist to support our proteomics facility's activities. These include the design, and execution of proteomic experiments such as: gel spot analysis, iTRAQ/SILAC/label free quant experiments, disulfide analysis, phosphorylation site analysis. The incumbent will also troubleshoot problems of both nano and regular flow HPLC chromatography as well as perform basic instrument maintenance.
The incumbent will have the skills required for informatics solutions to manage, display and search proteomics datasets eg MaxQuant, Skyline, PD, Dynamix. The unique differentiating approach of the Bio21 Mass Spectrometry Proteomics facility is to teach our users how to perform their own proteomic experiments and data analysis. As explained further here: N. A. Williamson, J Am Soc Mass Spectrom 29, 439-446 (2018). The incumbent of this role will support a large number of projects and will act as a supervisor to students and staff as the projects progress.
