Post Doctorate RA - Instrument Development & Deployment
Full/Part Time: Full-Time
The Integrative Omics research group at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has a postdoctoral researcher position available for the development and implementation of advanced mass spectrometry-based proteomics and metabolomics capabilities. This position involves the development of automated methods and advanced instrumentation for system biology research. Efforts include the development and application of advanced ion mobility time-of-flight mass spectrometry technologies for the identification and quantification of peptides/proteins and/or metabolites from small samples of biological tissues, cells, and fluids. The candidate is expected to develop multi-dimensional gas phase separation instrumentation and methods, atmospheric and elevated pressure interfaces to be coupled to an ion mobility spectrometer, ion trapping and selection approaches that provide greatly improved separation peak capacity, limit of detection, and dynamic range to address previously intractable biological applications.
