A52850R - Research Assistant/Associate in Proteomics of ubiquitin-like modifiers

Newcastle University - Institute for Cell Molecular Biosciences

Salary: Research Assistant: £26,829 - £28,452
Research Associate: £29,301 - £31,076 (with progression to £38,183)

You will work in the group of Prof Matthias Trost within the Institute for Cell and Molecular Biosciences on a project aimed at studying the role of ubiquitin-like modifiers in macrophages and on phagosomes. The project will exploit the laboratory’s expertise in the analysis of proteomes and post-translational modifications using mass spectrometry and cell biology techniques.

You will have an excellent degree in chemistry, biology, biochemistry or a related area. You will also possess a PhD in chemistry, biochemistry or a related field (for appointment at Associate level) or imminent submission of thesis (for appointment at Assistant level). You will have a good academic track record and have published at least one first authored paper in an international journal.

You will be a talented and enthusiastic post-doctoral scientist with a background in mass spectrometry/proteomics. You will ideally have experience with large-scale proteome analyses, and knowledge and working experience with mass spectrometry systems and quantitative proteomics as well as the ability to use bioinformatic tools to analyse large-scale data. Knowledge and working experience in biochemistry, cell signalling, cell biology or immunology would be advantageous, but is not essential.

Tenable for three years, available from 1 March 2017, but applicants wishing to start at a later time will be considered.

Informal enquiries should be directed to Prof Matthias Trost (matthias.trost@newcastle.ac.uk).

The Institute holds a bronze Athena SWAN award in addition to the University’s silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of our good employment practices for the advancement of gender equality, and the University holds the HR Excellence in Research award for our work to support the career development of our researchers. We are also a member of the Euraxess network.
