Postdoctoral Position in MS-based Proteomics at University of Copenhagen, Denmark

The ideal candidate should be able to conduct independent and creative research, demonstrate scientific productivity, and show good interpersonal and communication skills. The postdoctoral fellow will work in the Department of Proteomics together with Associate Professor Michael L. Nielsen. The group aims at developing novel proteomic approaches for quantitative proteome analysis, global and unbiased identification of posttranslational modifications (PTMs), and protein interaction mapping (to proteins, PTMs, RNA or DNA). The candidate will focus on developing new MS-based technologies and apply them in relevant biological areas. To achieve these scientific goals the postdoctoral candidate will use cutting-edge proteomics tools.

The candidate is required to have a PhD or equivalent degree in natural or medical science. Excellent scientific track record. Prior experience in biochemistry, cell culture, protein chemistry techniques and liquid chromatography is desirable. Prior experience in high resolution mass spectrometry (LTQ Orbitrap Velos or Q-Exactive) is highly desired. Knowledge in genetics and biology, cell signaling, chromatin biology or analytical chemistry would be considered a distinct advantage. Good communication skills, both oral and written. An analytical aptitude of devising innovative scientific or technical solutions. Demonstrate enthusiasm, motivation, flexibility and confidence.
