MacCoss Lab, University of Washington Department of Genome Sciences, is seeking a Postdoctoral fellow. Mike MacCoss  2021-04-26

The MacCoss lab has been a pioneer in the development and application of quantitative proteomics methods. We are currently seeking a motivated post-doc candidate with experience in performing drug and/or genetic perturbations, followed by the phenotypic characterization of those perturbations using omics methods. This project will be performed in collaboration with a major pharmaceutical company.

The successful candidate will be part of an interdisciplinary team of mass spectrometrists, bioinformatics experts, biochemists, and software developers. Requirements:
• The candidate should have a Ph.D. in biochemistry, cell biology, biology, or related discipline.
• A strong background in cell culture, experience in protein biochemistry, and running complex experiments.
• Exposure to mass-spectrometry based proteomics is a major plus.
• Excellent writing and presentation skills.
• Must have the ability to analyze complex Omic datasets using python, R, or similar.
• Ability to learn quickly, problem solve, and work independently.

Desired skills:
• Experience preparing protein samples for analysis by mass spectrometry.
• Familiarity with ThermoFisher instrumentation.
• Expertise in the use of Skyline software for quantitative analysis of mass spectrometry data.
• Familiarity with data-independent acquisition mass spectrometry data.

The University of Washington, Department of Genome Sciences provides a vibrant research environment. The MacCoss lab is well equipped and features an interdisciplinary research team with a strength in proteomics method development with collaborations related to neurodegenerative diseases, basic biology of aging, diabetes, clinical assay development, drug response characterization, etc...
