We are seeking a Principal Research Engineer to develop and use mass spectrometry-based techniques combined with chemometric bioinformatics to study brain tumor types glioma. Applicants must have documented postdoctoral experience in mass spectroscopic characterization of tumor types glioma. The position is full-time and time-limited until 2018-01-30. To start immediately.
Project description: The project involves the development and application of various types of mass spectrometry to quantify metabolites in the relevant tissues and biofuels, and relate the resulting data to phenotypic information using chemometric bioinformatics. Furthermore, the results and hypotheses generated from metabolomikstudierna be monitored using functional studies in the relevant systems to investigate and validate biochemical mechanisms.
|Fellowship Level||Postdoc, Principal Research Engineer|
|Subject areas||Chemistry, Biochemistry or Molecular Biology|
|Eligibility||Open for international Students|
Tasks: Your tasks will include the development and application of various types of mass spectrometry to quantify metabolites in the relevant tissues and biofuels, chemometric bioinformatic analysis and evaluation of data generated and biochemical validation of generated results and hypotheses in the relevant model systems.
Qualifications We are looking for someone with a PhD in chemistry, biochemistry or molecular biology or equivalent and documented postdoctoral experience in mass spectroscopic characterization of tumor types glioma. Additionally, you must have good knowledge in chemometrics / bioinformatics and biochemistry. Experience in the fields of metabolomics and / or proteomics and to work in intradisciplinary projects, preferably with a focus on the glioma is an advantage. You have a good cooperation and communication skills as well as educational and analytical skills. You are easy to take initiative and work independently. When the project is in an international environment requires very good skills in oral and written communication in English.
