Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Post Doctorate RA - Mass Spectrometry in RICHLAND, Washington

Organization and Job ID

Job ID: 309300

Directorate: Earth & Biological Sciences

Division: Biological Sciences

Group: Integrative Omics

Job Description

The Integrative Omics research group at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has an exciting position for a postdoctoral researcher available for the development and implementation of cutting edge mass spectrometry-based proteomics and metabolomics capabilities. This position involves the development of automated methods and advanced instrumentation for system biology research. Efforts include the development and application for ultra-high resolution ion mobility measurements such as Structures for Lossless Ion Manipulations (SLIM) technologies for the identification and quantification of peptides/proteins and/or metabolites from small samples of biological tissues, cells, and fluids. The candidate is expected to develop multi-dimensional gas phase separation instrumentation and methods, atmospheric and elevated pressure interfaces to be coupled to an ion mobility spectrometer, ion trapping and selection approaches that provide greatly improved separation peak capacity, limit of detection, and dynamic range to address previously intractable biological applications. We have a great work environment that encourage innovation and productivity with resources available for a successful career.

Minimum Qualifications

Candidates must have received a PhD within the past five years (60 months) or within the next 8 months from an accredited college or university.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Technical Expertise: Specific skills of interest include experience in one or more of the following areas: multi-dimensional gas phase separation methods, ion mobility spectrometry, ion-ion reaction, trapping and selection approaches that provide greatly improved separation peak capacity, limit of detection, and dynamic range to address previously intractable biological applications.

  • Breadth of relevant technical knowledge in ion optics instrumentation and simulation is also desired.

  • Independent, self-motivated and excellent communicator.

  • Minimum Education/Experience: Ph.D. in chemistry, physics, engineering, or related field within the last 5 years

Degree in chemistry, physics, engineering, or related field.
