POSTDOCTORAL POSITION (Mass Spectrometry PROTEOMICS)
Department of Pharmaceutics, University of Washington Seattle, WA, USA
A postdoctoral position is available in at the department of Pharmaceutics, University of Washington (UW), Seattle, WA in the area of targeted and discovery proteomics. The laboratory is working on the mechanisms of age-dependent variability in drug disposition and response and applications of these data towards pediatric precision medicine. The NIH funded translational research projects will primarily involve proteomics method development and validation to quantify drug metabolizing enzymes, transporters and receptors in human tissues, biofluids and cells. The data generated will guide precise clinical studies in children.
The candidate is expected to have prior experience of proteomics sample preparation including posttranslational modification, mass spectrometry proteomics with familiarity to standard molecular biology techniques. The successful candidate will develop and execute experimental procedures, interpret data, present results at scientific conferences and prepare manuscripts for publication. The candidate will have the ability to work both independently and as part of a team. Exciting research environment, state-of-the-art equipment and facilities are available at UW School of Pharmacy. This position is available for two years with the possibility of extension.
A Ph.D. degree in molecular biology or biochemistry with focus on proteomics and bioanalysis is required. The applicant must have at least one first-author publication on mass spectrometry proteomics in peer-reviewed journals to be considered.
