Post-doctoral Research Associate in Newcastle, UK: Proteomics of post-translational modifications

Postby achimt » Tue May 30, 2017 6:50 am

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position to work in the group of Prof Matthias Trost studying post-translational modifications in innate immunity. The project will exploit the laboratory’s expertise in the analysis of proteomes and post-translational modifications using mass spectrometry and cell biology techniques.

We seek a talented and enthusiastic post-doctoral scientist with a background in mass spectrometry/proteomics. The successful applicant will have a good academic track record and have published at least one first authored paper in an international journal. The candidate will ideally have experience with large-scale proteome analyses, and knowledge and working experience with mass spectrometry systems and quantitative proteomics as well as the ability to use bioinformatic tools to analyse large-scale data. Knowledge and working experience in biochemistry, cell signalling, cell biology or immunology would be advantageous, but is not essential. Because we are very collaborative lab, the applicant should enjoy collaborations.

The new lab at Newcastle University is equipped to the highest standard with an Orbitrap Fusion Lumos, a QExactive HF and a RapiFlex PharmaPulse MALDI TOF mass spectrometer. ICaMB is committed to the Athena SWAN Charter for Women in Science as detailed on our web site ( and have recently received a Bronze Award from Athena Swan. Newcastle is an attractive city with fast access to beautiful nature and affordable housing.

The position is initially for 2 years and 9 months but can potentially be extended. It is available immediately, but applicants wishing to start at a later time will be considered. The position is based in the Institute for Cell and Molecular Biosciences at Newcastle University.

Salary £29,301-38,183. Closing date: June 7th 2017
