Proteomics & Metabolomics Core Facility Scientist/Director (Academic Assistant 3)
The Center for Open Research Resources and Equipment (http://core.uconn.edu/about) at the University of Connecticut seeks a Facility Scientist/Director to lead a soon to be established Proteomics & Metabolomics Core Facility Resource. The Core resource will house two state-of-the-art mass spectrometers (a Thermo Scientific Q Exactive HF and a Waters SYNAPT G2-Si) in dedicated laboratory space. The Proteomics & Metabolomics Core is expected to serve the research needs of nearly 100 faculty at the Storrs and Farmington (UConn Health) campuses with an expected 5 to 1 ratio of proteomics to metabolomics users.
The successful candidate will be enthusiastic to build a full-service core from the ground up, and motivated to maintain a high quality fee-for-service facility at the cutting edge of research. It is expected that the majority of the facility scientist/director's time will be spent providing consultations to faculty and students on proteomic analyses, processing and analyzing proteomic samples, and teaching training courses.
• Ph.D. with experience in proteomics research and method development as evidenced by a strong publication and presentation record in the field.
• Mastery of basic and quantitative proteomics techniques (e.g., label-free, SILAC, TMT, etc.), technologies, and data analysis and sharing pipelines.
• Excellent written and oral communication skills and the desire to work in a service oriented environment.
• Strong working knowledge of Thermo Orbitrap instrumentation (and associated LC and workflows), and the ability to troubleshoot issues and perform typical maintenance routines.
• Ability and eagerness to provide technical consultations with large numbers of faculty and provide workshops/seminars/courses for faculty and students.
• Willingness to lead in the writing of grant proposals aimed at supporting and advancing the facility.
• Excellent organizational skills.
• Post-doctoral experience and/or experience running a successful proteomics core facility at another academic institution or in industry.
• Knowledge of common metabolomic pipelines and workflows.
• Experience teaching proteomics related content (e.g., through seminar, workshops, and/or courses).
• Knowledge of techniques relevant to the analysis of protein post-translational modifications (e.g., phosphorylation, sumoylation, etc.) at the individual protein level and on a global scale.
• Basic programming skills, and familiarity working in a UNIX/Linux environment.
The position is for a full-time, eleven month, non-tenure track appointment at the Academic Assistant 3 level. Salary will be set between $70,000 and $90,000 annually (with excellent benefits), commensurate with experience.
With its main campus located in picturesque eastern Connecticut and situated on over 3,000 acres, the Storrs campus of the University of Connecticut has the additional benefit of being only a short drive to the major metropolitan areas of Hartford (25 miles), New Haven (60 miles), Providence (50 miles), Boston (80 miles), and New York City (135 miles). In addition to housing more than 100 research centers and institutes, the University of Connecticut has consistently been ranked the top public university in New England, and ranks among the top 20 public research universities in the nation.
