The Position

The Discovery Proteomics group is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to investigate the intersection of the ubiquitin system with cell death and innate immunity. The project aims to utilize quantitative MS proteomics to dissect signaling by ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like proteins induced by pathogenic stimuli within genetically engineered model systems. The successful candidate should be innovative and capable of working independently to establish methods, carry out experiments, and perform computational data analysis.

The candidate should have experience with cell engineering and protein biochemistry. Previous experience performing mass spectrometry proteomics within the ubiquitin, autophagy and/or cell death research fields is desirable, but not required. Strong interpersonal, organizational and communication skills are essential.


Successful candidate will have received a Ph.D. degree in the area of cellular/molecular biology, biochemistry, mass spectrometry based proteomics, or a closely related field within the last two years.
