Post-doctoral position in Mass spectrometry (LTQ-Orbitrap)
Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA van Wijk lab -
Mass spectrometrist. A postdoc position (2-3 years) is available in
Mass Spectrometry and Comparative Proteomics. The applicant will
operate three mass spectrometers for protein and peptide
identification: 1. a MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer (Voyager DE-STR), 2)
nanoLC-Q-TOF and 3) a nanoLC-LTQ-Orbitrap (ThermoElectron). The
postdoc/tech will use these instruments for protein identification and
protein-protein interaction studies, as well as (large scale)
comparative proteomics using spectral counting and various stable
isotope labeling techniques. Mass spectrometers and other proteomics
and bioinformatics infrastructure are located within the van Wijk lab.
The applicant MUST have a very strong background in mass spectrometry
of peptides and proteins, as is evidenced by one or more publications
in International Journals. Responsibilities and salary will be
adjusted based on experience.
Application Instructions: Send your CV and the names of 3 references
to klaas van Wijk at firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not apply if you have no
significant experience with Mass spectrometry.
