Position: Postdoctoral Fellowship Position in Bioinformatics for Mass Spectrometry-based Proteomics Research
Full/Part Time: Full Time
Investigator: Singh, Sasha A.
Date Posted: 2020-02-12
Description: We are seeking an individual to join our team to undertake the following research projects: 1) Analysis of high dimensional data acquired from multi-omics studies that include one or more of proteomics, metabolomics and transcriptomics for drug target discovery. 2) Posttranslational modification analyses using advanced mass spectrometric workflows. 3) Targeted proteomics or metabolomics, and implementation of spectral libraries for peptide or metabolite identifications. Additional projects that would interest the candidate include single-cell transcript profiling, and systems biology and artificial intelligence-driven studies aimed to predict the beneficial and off-target effects of putative therapeutics. The successful candidate will be able to collaborate with a number of talented researchers, will guide them through their research endeavors and will be a co-author on publications arising from these projects.
Requirements: The candidate must have a PhD or equivalent experience. Candidates with experience in mass spectrometry data analysis are preferred, however those with a keen interest in learning about mass spectrometry are encouraged to apply. Specific skill requirements include data analysis with statistics, script languages such as R and Python, programming languages such as C, C++, C# or JAVA, and scripting in Linux/UNIX. Experience with computational mass spectrometry analysis is preferred; however, basic knowledge of mass spectrometry or equivalent biochemistry is a benefit. Experience in systems biology and/or machine learning is also advantageous. We also are looking for an individual with outstanding motivation, a firm commitment to productivity, and who has strong communication and writing skills.
