Senior Research Associate on Proteomics - Impossible Foods, Redwood City, CA
Yiming Chen 2021-02-04

Play here:

Impossible Foods is addressing the most catastrophic threats facing humanity: climate change and biodiversity collapse. A global transition to a plant-based food system will turn back the clock on atmospheric CO2 levels, restore natural ecosystems and reverse meltdown in wildlife biomass.

The easiest -- if not only -- way to make our civilization sustainable is to eliminate livestock, the most dangerous technology on Earth. But humans won’t give up meat. So we need to make meat better -- more delicious and more nutritious, without animals as the underlying production technology. That means that making meat sustainably is the most important and urgent problem for the global scientific community.

Impossible Foods' mission is to completely replace the use of animals as a food-production technology by offering consumers everything they currently value about animal products -- and making products that are vastly superior to their animal analogues.

To do this, we are taking a revolutionary scientific and market-based approach. We are inventing efficient, sustainable ways to transform ingredients from plants into meat, fish and dairy foods that deliver all the pleasures and nutritional benefits consumers demand, without the destructive environmental or public health impact.

Our world-class R&D team has been building the know-how and technology platform to produce meat, fish and dairy foods from plants. Impossible Foods is experiencing rapid growth and is resolutely committed to leading all aspects of the plant-based food revolution—from discovery to commercial production. The only thing that will separate Impossible Foods from success and failure is our ability to recruit more world-class experts.

Want to join? Check out the job opening and requirements below:

Protein Structural Mass Spectrometry Position
ray blind 2021-02-04


My lab at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, USA is looking for a biochemistry-minded research scientist, research associate or postdoctoral fellow interested in applying mass spectrometry-based approaches to protein structural biology. We recently published the first full-length integrated structural model of a monomeric nuclear receptor. The model of this transcription factor bound to a DNA oligo was derived largely from mass spectrometry-based data:

The target protein is the nuclear receptor LRH-1 (NR5A2), a ligand activated transcription factor and target for antidiabetic drug design. The above paper establishes the unperturbed ground state structure. Your project will be to determine how known small molecule ligands, drugs, hormones, peptides and DNA sequences regulate this structure.

The techniques we applied to determine the above structure included BS3 chemical crosslinking, benzophenone artificial amino acid crosslinking, engineered disulphide crosslinking and hydrogen-deuterium exchange (HDX). We used these techniques as amino acid proximity sensors in this multi-domain protein target to model how the individual domains interact with each other. For more details please visit my lab site:

Although scientist-level candidates should have extensive proteomic data analysis, protein expression, purification and characterization experience, postdoc or research associates need only basic protein biochemistry skills, an eagerness to learn and a strong sense of scientific bravery.

Send your CV to the PI (Ray Blind) at, soon-to-be PhD graduates are specifically encouraged to apply.

Post-doctoral research position in functional cancer proteomics
kentsisresearchgroup 2019-09-30

Functional Cancer Proteomics

We are a group of biochemists, biologists and physicians in the Molecular Pharmacology Program at the Sloan Kettering Institute in New York City, USA. We carry out research in cancer biology, and our current work is focused on the phenomenon of cellular plasticity, as it relates both to the fundamental mechanisms of cancer pathogenesis and emerging rational therapies.

In particular, we are studying the biology of refractory leukemias and solid tumors, and we are interested in understanding the principles of disorganization of their genomes and proteomes, and determining the molecular mechanisms of response and adaptation of tumor cells to targeted therapies.

To answer these questions, we are developing new approaches, based on quantitative mass spectrometry and functional proteomics, to decipher the mechanisms of cancer cell signaling and develop new therapeutics.

Forward Proteomic Screens for Cancer Therapeutics and Macromolecular Delivery. Using recently developed methods for quantitative proteomics and peptide barcoding (Egloff et al, Nature Methods 2019, PMID: 31113958), we’ve developed a new platform for high-throughput design and screening of macromolecular cell penetration and delivery reagents. This is a transformative technology that enables the generation of new classes of drugs to modulate specific protein-protein interactions, which we’ve recently applied for targeted leukemia therapy (Ramaswamy et al, Nature Communications 2018, PMID 29317678). Current efforts are focused on applying this technology for protein engineering and development of new peptide conjugates for cancer and gene therapy.

Quantitative Cell Proteomics Atlas ( Using developed methods for ultra-sensitive quantitative proteomics (Cifani & Kentsis, MCP 2017, PMID 28821601), we’ve developed an atlas of targeted mass spectrometry assays to profile biochemical signaling at the pathway scale in normal and cancer cells. Current efforts are focused on developing high-throughput and genome-scale methods. This work aims to define systems-level mechanisms of aberrant signaling in cancer cells, as well as fundamental cell biological processes of signaling adaptation, feedback and integration.

If you are a recent PhD graduate with interest in the above areas and experience with nanoscale liquid chromatography, electrospray ionization, high-resolution mass spectrometry or protein engineering and chemistry, please contact Alex Kentsis at or
