The Department of Biochemistry and Neurology within the Emory University School of Medicine has a postdoctoral position available to utilize mass spectrometry-based discovery and targeted proteomic and lipidomic applications to identify new biomarkers for Parkinson’s disease. The individual hired for this position will work closely with the NIH Accelerating Medicine Partnership for Alzheimer's Disease Research and Drug Development Consortium. Preferable candidates will have a PhD in biochemistry, chemistry or related discipline. Experience with analytical biochemistry and separation and analysis by liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry, required. Applicants with expertise in quantitative proteomics by label-free, or labeling techniques (e.g., iTRAQ, TMT etc.) and/or targeted MS approaches (SRM and PRM) are preferred. Experience with advanced mass spectrometry techniques including hydrogen deuterium exchange, ion mobility, native protein characterization, ion mobility, collision induce unfolding and the quantification of post-translational modifications (PTMs) by mass spectrometry are also desirable. Finally, the individual must also be able to work with interdisciplinary teams of researchers, and communicate and write effectively as demonstrated by peer reviewed publications. The laboratory is well equipped with orbitrap, QQQ and ion mobility TOF instrument.
• PhD in biochemistry, chemistry with experience utilizing targeted or discovery proteomic approaches employing mass spectrometry. Strong organization and communication skills are needed to work efficiently in a team environment as demonstrated by peer reviewed publications.
MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: A doctoral degree or equivalent (Ph.D., M.D., ScD., D.V.M., DDS etc) in an appropriate field. Excellent scientific writing ability and strong oral communication skills. The ability to work effectively and collegially with colleagues. Additional qualifications as specified by the Principal Investigator.
