Postdoctoral Research Associate - Host-Pathogen Proteomics

The overall project goals include the development of early infection biomarkers relevant to plant pathogens. These experiments will be done in close collaboration with the Cilia Lab, at the Boyce Thompson Institute and Robert. W. Holley Center for Agriculture and Health USDA-ARS at Cornell University (http://bti.cornell.edu/michelle-cilia/). Responsibilities include experimental design and planning, plant and insect sample preparation, development and application of advanced mass spectrometry methods, cross-linking application sample preparation, data analysis, preparation of results for manuscripts and presentations, and manuscript writing. Effective teamwork, communication skills and ability to participate in an interdisciplinary collaboration are key requirements.

Requirements: Candidates must have a PhD in chemistry, biochemistry or biological sciences with significant training and hands-on expertise in mass spectrometry, quantitative proteomics and must have excellent communication skills and team work ability.

To apply, please mail or email a CV (including publication list and at least three references) and a cover letter stating goals to the address below. Please refer to posting #JB13-1 when applying for this position.


Postdoctoral Research Associate - Advanced Mass Spectrometry Technology Development

Major Duties and responsibilities include participation in designing, planning, development and application of parallel or array mass spectrometry-based technology for protein identification and quantification. Responsibilities will include development and fabrication of novel components, ions sources, ion guides, detectors and software, data analysis, manuscript preparation, presentation of results, and working with collaborators and other members of the research team. Effective teamwork is a requirement.

Requirements: Candidates must have a Ph.D. in chemistry, physics, or related scientific discipline. Candidate must have experience in scientific instrumentation design, fabrication and troubleshooting. Qualifications should also include hands-on experience with vacuum system technology, electronics, and ion optics. Candidates with additional experience in software development, protein/peptide sample preparation and/or experience with LC/MS/MS quantification will be given preference. Candidates with a strong publication record in peer-reviewed journals, excellent communications skills and teamwork ability will be given strong preference.

To apply, please mail or email a CV (including publication list and at least three references) and a cover letter stating goals to the address below. Please refer to posting #JB13-2 when applying for this position.


Postdoctoral Research Associate - Protein-Protein Interactions

Responsibilities include development and application of novel Protein Interaction Reporter (PIR) technology for identification and characterization of protein interactions in cells. This involves cross-linker synthesis and purification, application to cells, sample preparation, advanced mass spectrometry, PIR data analysis, presentation and publication of results. Effective teamwork is a requirement.

Requirements: Candidate must have a Ph.D. in chemistry, biochemistry or a related science with significant training and hands-on expertise in biological mass spectrometry and proteomics technologies. Candidates with demonstrated LC/MS/MS experience will be preferred. Candidates must have a strong publication record in peer-reviewed journals, excellent communications skills and team work ability. Previous experience in organic synthesis, molecular biology, cell biology, or biochemistry is highly desired.

To apply, please mail or email a CV (including publication list and at least three references) and a cover letter stating goals to the address below. Please refer to posting #JB13-3 when applying for this position.
