Research - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
The Masonic Cancer Center is seeking an experienced analytical mass spectrometrist is sought to develop and validate biomarkers of exposures to environmental and dietary carcinogens, and their DNA adducts in cells and human tissues. The research requires hands-on experience in LC/MS and mass spectrometric characterization of biomarkers in complex biological matrices. A candidate with a background in metabolomics or exposomics research is desirable. The candidate is expected to work semi-independently in LC/MS development and validation of DNA adduct biomarkers or metabolomics/exposomics employing triple quadrupole, ion trap and high-resolution MS instruments.
Doctoral Degree-required, preferred field of study analytical science, biology, biochemistry, chemistry, or related field with three years of research experience beyond PhD degree
Experience with Mass Spectrometry instrumentation; LC-MS/MS of biological matrices
Extensive hands-on experience on operating and maintaining LC mass spec instruments (triple quadrupole and ion trap MS, high resolution mass spectrometry) and data analysis software
Working knowledge of qualitative and quantitative analysis of biomarkers, trace-level analysis of biomolecules in vivo
Excellent written and oral communication skills
Strong organizational and time management skills to ensure all deadlines are met
Prior research in exposomics or metabolomics, and cell culture experience
Strong computer skills and experience in post-data analysis of metabolomics data and biostatistics
