A Postdoctoral Research Associate position in Mass Spectrometry is open in the team of basic hearing mechanisms and precision medicine directed by professor Christine Petit (Institut de l’audition, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France) in collaboration with Dr Charles Pineau (Biosit, Protim Core facility, Rennes, France).
The project focuses on developing mass spectrometry proteomics approaches to probe protein expression in normal and pathological hearing. Successful candidate should have a PhD in Chemistry, Biochemistry, or a relevant subject area, or have submitted his(her) thesis prior to taking up the appointment. Candidate should have expertise in characterization of proteins using relevant proteomics strategies. An experience in the development of targeted mass spectrometry approaches for protein quantification will be a plus.
Duties will include managing own academic research and administrative activities. This involves small scale project management, coordinating multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines and collaborating in the preparation of scientific reports and journal articles.
This post requires excellent analytical skills, experience with a broad range of proteomics workflows, strong capability in data analysis and visualization, and good communication and reporting skills.
This position is for two years, starting as soon as possible, and can be extended for a third year. The salary is based on the Pasteur Institute's salary grids and will be adjusted according to experience. With a Parisian salary, the successful candidate will be based in Rennes, a dynamic city where life is cheaper and housing more affordable.
The applicant can be from any country including France.
Candidates must submit a complete CV, a brief description of their scientific skills and interests and the names of two referees.
