Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Post Doctorate RA - Protein Posttranslational Modifications and Targeted Proteomics in RICHLAND, Washington

Organization and Job ID

Job ID: 312011

Directorate: Earth & Biological Sciences

Division: Biological Sciences

Group: Integrative Omics

Job Description

The Integrative Omics group within the Biological Sciences Division at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is seeking highly motivated candidates for multiple postdoctoral positions focusing on mass spectrometry-based quantitative proteomics method development and applications in the context of biomedical or environmental applications. The research areas include the development, optimization, and applications of quantitative methodologies for protein posttranslational modifications (e.g., protein thiol-based redox modifications), and the development and applications of targeted mass spectrometry-based assays towards clinical and translational applications in metabolic diseases such as diabetes and obesity. The Integrative Omics group also presents a diverse array of opportunities ranging from analytical biochemistry, mass spec instrumentation, multi-omics measurements, single cell proteomics, bioinformatics, and many environmental and biomedical applications. The candidates are anticipated to work with a multi-disciplinary team and to have the flexibility in working on multiple projects. The preferred candidate would have a Ph.D. degree in analytical chemistry, biochemistry, chemistry, or clinical chemistry, molecular biology, bioengineering, or closely related fields. Although not required, hands-on experience in mass spectrometry, proteomics, LC separations, posttranslational modifications, and data analysis will be considered as a plus. Efforts will include biochemical methods development, LC-MS method developments, method optimization or assay optimization, various applications, as well as LC-MS analysis, and data interpretation of global and targeted quantitative proteomic measurements in different sample types. The successful candidate will be expected to work effectively with an interdisciplinary team of researchers, be self-motivated, and have excellent verbal and written communication skills. The successful candidate will assist, and possibly lead, in the preparation and presentation of papers, posters, reports, etc. Additionally, he/she will use project management systems at PNNL, maintain an accurate laboratory notebook, adhere to Environmental Safety and Health (ES&H) Operations, and follow security requirements as well as directorate/group policies.

This is a full-time, limited term employment position. The duration of this appointment is two years, with the option of extending the appointment for up to three years.

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

Strong organization and communication skills are needed to work efficiently in a team environment and to effectively demonstrate project success.

Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Bioengineering, Biology, or a closely related field is required.
