Research Fellow in Food Proteomics

University of Surrey - Biochemical Sciences

Location: Guildford
Salary: £34,308 to £37,474 Per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 17th January 2023
Closes: 5th February 2023
Job Ref: 002523

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research fellow which is available immediately in the Food and Molecular Immunology research group led by Professor Clare Mills in the Immunology Section of the School of Biosciences and Medicine, University of Surrey.  It forms part of her ongoing collaboration with Waters Corporation (Wilmslow, UK) and Nestlé (Lausanne, Switzerland). 

The overall focus of the post is to apply state-of-the-art proteomics methods to define the molecular characteristics of extensively hydrolysed infant formula (EHF) as determinants of their immunological activity. This is being realised through the application of ion mobility mass spectrometry to monitor both residual intact protein and peptide profiling in EHF and identify and semi-quantify processing induced modifications which may affect the safety of EHF for allergic infants.  As part of the project the postholder will have training visits to the Nestlé research centre in Lausanne, Switzerland and the Waters Corporation MS centre at Wilmslow, UK. 

We are therefore looking for a highly motivated individual with a PhD in a biochemistry or biological chemistry or a related and proven ability in the application of application of mass spectrometry methods to analysis of biological molecules. A knowledge of proteomics would be beneficial. 

We are part of the growing and vibrant Section of Immunology located at the beautiful campus of the University of Surrey, close to London. The Section is within the Department of Biochemical Sciences and links to the unique capability in single cell imaging with mass spectrometry which builds on the National ion beam facility.

Interviews to be held the week beginning 17/02/2023

When completing the online application form, please ensure you include a cover letter with a supporting statement.
