Research Technician in Quantitative Proteomics

Organization: 
UVic-Genome BC Proteomics Centre
Job Location: 
Victoria, BC, Canada
Job Description: 

The UVic-Genome BC Proteomics Centre is currently seeking one research technician to provide assistance in a plethora of proteomics-based mass spectrometry projects. Using established and novel quantitative proteomic methods, the candidate will be responsible for preparing, processing, and analysing peptide mixtures from complex biological samples (e.g. plasma, serum, cerebrospinal fluid) via bottom-up LC-MRM/MS. The overall aim of the intended projects is to verify and validate potential protein disease biomarkers toward clinical utility. A successful candidate should be able to perform multiple projects simultaneously in a fast-paced environment. Note that experience with operating and troubleshooting LC-MS instrumentation is not required, but the incumbent is expected to acquire and utilize these skills over time. If you are looking for a challenge, are ready to assist in the completion of several biomarker-driven projects (be it toward method development or fee-for-service), and have a desire to work at the edge of quantitative proteomic development, this may be the opportunity for you.

Requirements: 

• BSc in Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry, or related field within the past 4 years.
• At least 1 year of bench top research experience.
• Strong organizational and time management skills.
• Ability to multitask and work both independently and in a team oriented setting.

Contact Information: 

Those interested are encouraged to e-mail a cover letter and resume (in PDF format) to ajpercy@proteincentre.com. Please note that we are not accepting application materials from third-party sources.
