The Nemes Research Laboratory (NRG) has pioneered ultrasensitive proteomics for cell and developmental biology and neuroscience and has discovered molecules capable of altering normal cell fate decisions (see group website: http://blog.umd.edu/nemes/). The NRG is hereby seeking a talented and motivated postdoctoral researcher with existing experience in bottom-up proteomic workflows of sample preparation, nano-flow liquid chromatography, orbitrap mass spectrometry, multiplexing quantification (e.g., TMT, iTRAQ), and bioinformatics (e.g., SEQUEST, MaxQuant, etc.). The applicant will work with and help lead an interdisciplinary team of scientists consisting of faculty, postdocs, and graduate students to establish (ultra)sensitive quantitative workflows to enable the interrogation of molecular mechanisms that are critical for cell differentiation and embryonic development but have been unavailable for investigation due to limitations in analytical sensitivity. The ideal candidate is already experienced in routinely operating and maintaining the Ultimate 3000 RSLCnano Orbitrap Fusion Lumos system.

Experience in tools of molecular biology is a bonus. Prior experience in working with the AB Sciex CESI capillary electrophoresis instrument is a bonus but is not required. Experience working with custom-built instrumentation or custom-building instrumentation is welcome but is not required.

The proactive and self-motivated candidate will have the opportunity to learn new skills in ultrasensitive proteomics, mass spectrometry instrumentation, and cell/developmental biology. The NRG owns a comprehensive suite of mass spectrometers, LC and CE systems, bioinformatics software packages, a live animal colony, and all the infrastructure to provide a productive experience for the motivated post-doctoral scientist. The position is open until filled.

VIEW JOBS 3/17/2020 12:00:00 AM 2020-06-15T00:00 The India Human Development Survey (IHDS) project, housed at the University of Maryland and carried out in collaboration with National Council of Applied Economic Research, New Delhi, has received a grant from the Gates Foundation, to examine the linkages between India's economic transformation and women's empowerment. This project will have one opening for a post-doctoral research associate to undertake independent and collaborative analyses of IHDS data in keeping with the project's goals. We expect this work to lead to papers submitted to peer-reviewed journals as well as preparation of research and policy briefs. Individuals in this position will also be expected to contribute towards overall project management and development including questionnaire design, data quality evaluation and preparing analytical data files. Only electronic submissions in ejobs.umd.edu will be accepted. The following application materials are expected: 1. A curriculum vitae. 2. A cover letter (500-750 words) explaining the applicant's suitability for the job. 3. Statement of research interests. 4. List of references. Letters will only be solicited for short-listed candidates. University Of Maryland Berwyn Heights MD
