Job Opportunities

Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Proteomics)

Position description:
We currently have a great opportunity for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join our proteomics group in the Department of Surgery at the University of Michigan Medical Center, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

As a member of our research lab team, the individual will be expected to perform research on studies of changes in pancreatic cancer due to therapy. This will include performing mass spec assays to look at the exosomes in patient serum following chemo and radiation therapies. Also, there are additional projects involving glycoprotein markers in the sera from HCC cancer patients that the individual will also work on.

The individual will work alongside research staff and under the direction of the supervisor. We expect a postdoctoral level of commitment from you. The individual will design and perform experiments, process and analyze data, and develop new and/or revised research methodologies. The individual will critically analyze literature, prepare and present research papers, presentations and grants.

PhD in analytical chemistry, biochemistry or related scientific fields with experience in proteomics and/or mass spectrometry.
