The Postdoctoral Fellow for the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will be responsible for developing mass spectrometry-based new technologies and approaches to detect and measure biomarkers associated with cancer, obesity/diabetes and infectious disease, and to employ these methods to analyze samples from animal models of human disease and human subjects to test and validate their performance.
We are a multi-disciplinary team across biology, chemistry and bioinformatics.
You will join a team that focuses on developing non-invasive approaches for early disease diagnosis and disease prognosis, the use of advanced mass spectrometry approaches for proteomics and protein/peptide characterization, and analysis of extracellular vesicles as biomarkers in the progression of cancer and infectious disease.
