Your Mission

The Institute of Biochemistry (IBC), ETH Zurich invites applications for a Mass Spectrometry (MS) Specialist to provide state-of-the-art proteomic support. The position is available upon agreement.

The successful candidate is expected to design and perform quantitative MS analyses of complex protein samples in collaboration with scientists of IBC. The ideal candidate should be highly independent, detail-oriented, computer literate, and have excellent written and verbal communication skills. Prior experience with quantitative MS analyses of proteins and posttranslational modifications, targeted proteomic and data-independent MS workflows as well as data analysis tools thereof would be a plus.

Specifically, you will design and implement suitable MS analytical strategies for in-house proteomic projects, operate and maintain LC-MS systems (e.g. Q Exactive Plus), give advice on and perform sample preparation, measure samples using the most appropriate LC-MS/MS acquisition method, analyze and interpret MS data, report results to the internal collaborators, and keep up-to-date with technological advances in mass spectrometry and data analysis.

You should hold a PhD in Natural Sciences, preferably in Chemistry, Biology, Biochemistry or Systems Biology. You have broad experience in quantitative proteomics, data analysis and project management, preferably at the postdoctoral level. In addition to a solid research record, you should have enthusiasm for team work, good communication skills, and a strong interest in cellular biochemistry. English skills are a prerequisite.
