    Post-doctoral position

    "Application of DeepProt open mass search algorithms to bottom-up proteomics data"

    Location: Plateforme d’Analyse Protéomique de Paris Sud-Ouest (PAPPSO), Gif-sur-Yvette (France)

    Date: from automun 2019 to spring 2021 (18 months)

    Salary: 27-30 K€ (gross salary)

    Key words: proteomics, LC-MS/MS, mass spectra interpretation, open mass search, protein identification, protein modifications

    Context:

    Bottom-up proteomics generates tens of thousands of experimental spectra in a single LC-MS/MS injection. Software is essential to get information from so huge raw data, but at the moment on average 50 to 75% of the spectra remain uninterpreted after analysis. Modifications displayed by proteins are the most widespread hypothesis to explain this low rate. The ANR project DeepProt aims at developing new open mass search algorithms to more exhaustively interpret the set of experimental spectra generated by proteomics experiments - even those from complex metaproteomics studies - and next to deduce the list of proteins present in the analyzed mixture with detailed information about their post-translational modifications (PTM).

    Objective:

    The objective of this post-doctoral position is to define the fields of application in which the algorithms developed in the context of the DeepProt project are the most effective and to bring the proof of concept that these algorithms are highly effective to interpret protein mass modifications. To this end, several datasets are available at PAPPSO, including a metaproteomic dataset and datasets containing proteins with known modifications (either PTMs or amino-acid changes resulting from allelic modifications in the sequences of the encoding gene).

    Environment:

    PAPPSO (www.pappso.inra.fr) is a proteomic facility that aim to provide research teams with high skills and new-advanced equipments in the field of proteomics. It is more particularly specialized in high throughput proteomics (quantitative analysis of large cohorts of samples) and in the analysis of highly complex samples (metaproteomics). PAPPSO also develops bioinformatics tools that allow the processing of these experiments and provides assistance to users for data interpretation. PAPPSO gathers two sites distant from 8 kms: one located at the Moulon (Gif-sur-Yvette) in the Quantitative Genetics and Evolution laboratory (GQE-Le Moulon, 98 people) and the other one in Jouy-en-Josas in the MICALIS Institute (Food and Gut Microbiology for Human Health, 350 people). Each site has developed specificities related with its home laboratory. The Moulon site, where the successful applicant will be based, has been specialized in plant proteomics for a long time.

    Candidates:

    Applicants should hold a PhD or a doctoral degree and show a sound expertise in comprehensive analysis of proteomics data and/or in bioinformatics and bioanalysis. Statistical skill would be much appreciated.

    Interested candidates are encouraged to submit a cover letter, a CV with a list of publications and contact details of 2-3 referees by email to michel.zivy@inra.fr and melisande.blein-nicolas@inra.fr

    Position title: Post-doctoral fellowship in proteomics of Retinal Pigment Epithelium

    Company: National Eye Institute, National Institutes of Health

    Location: Bethesda, Maryland, USA

    Summary of position: The Redmond lab (Laboratory of Retinal Cell & Molecular Biology, National Eye Institute, NIH) is seeking to recruit an outstanding post-doctoral fellow to study proteomics of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) of the outer retina. We investigate the biochemistry and molecular biology of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), including RPE65 and visual cycle retinoid metabolism in the RPE, and other characteristic processes of the RPE essential to vision. The RPE is a highly metabolically and physiologically specialized tissue with metabolic processes important to continuing vision, not found in other tissues, even elsewhere in the eye. Many blinding diseases (inherited and age-related) involve derangement of these key RPE processes. As much of the basic fundamentals remains unknown, we are investigating in depth the sub-proteomes of the RPE to better understand their role in health and blinding disease.

    Qualifications: Candidates must hold a PhD or MD/PhD in a cognate field, within three years of degree being awarded; must have first authorship on at least one peer-reviewed publication; have strong training in biochemistry/proteomics/structural biology with experience in protein/cellular fractionation/purification, proteomics and mass spectrometry; have excellent writing and communications skills; and must be highly motivated to develop technical expertise and career-enhancing skills. The ability to work independently as well as part of a team is important as we are a highly collaborative lab.

    Position title: Postdoc in Advanced Proteomics applied to Erythropoiesis
    Company: Lund University
    Location: Lund, Sweden

    Summary of position:
    An exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Fellow is available immediately in the Proteomic Hematology group of Dr. Jenny Hansson at the Division of Molecular Hematology of the Lund Stem Cell Center, Lund University, Sweden. The Lund Stem Cell Center is a strategic center of excellence in life science, with a strong international position in the area of blood stem cell biology. We are seeking a highly motivated and ambitious postdoctoral fellow with a strong background in mass spectrometry-based proteomics to join a cross-disciplinary research project together with the research groups of Martin L. Olsson (MD, PhD, Prof.), Johan Flygare (MD, PhD) and Kenichi Miharada (PhD).

    Description
    The postdoctoral fellow will use cutting-edge mass-spectrometry based proteomics approaches to identify the regulators active in the erythropoietic niches. This includes the implementation and application of innovative sensitive mass spectrometry approaches for analysis of few primary cells obtained by micromanipulation (proximity-based single cell approach) and FACS. The postdoctoral fellow will be a critical part of a team working to establish novel concepts for how and where red blood cell production is controlled, ultimately providing promising targets for conceptually new pharmaceutical approaches to treat anemia, one of the most common medical conditions globally.

    Qualifications required
    Candidates are expected to have a strong background in mass spectrometry-based proteomics and knowledge in quantitative proteomics. Experience with both data-dependent and data-independent acquisition approaches is desirable but not essential. Knowledge in cell biology, especially hematopoiesis and erythropoiesis, is an advantage. Candidates must be highly motivated to pursue postdoctoral studies within proteomics methods development as well as to apply these methods to answer complex biological questions. Abilities to work independently as well as part of a team are essential. Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English are required for consideration. PhD degree should not be more than three years old at the last day of applying.

    Expression of Interest

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Mass spectrometry-based proteomics

    The Signalling Network Laboratory in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Monash University, Australia aims to identify novel therapeutic targets and biomarkers for particular poor prognosis human cancers, including triple negative breast cancer, prostate and gastric cancer, through an integrated strategy that combines mass spectrometry-based proteomics with bioinformatics, computational biology and functional genomics.

    Expressions of Interest are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position that will utilize mass spectrometry-based phosphoproteomic and kinomic profiling workflows and associated bioinformatic approaches to characterize cancer signalling networks, with the goal of identifying novel therapeutic targets and biomarkers. It will involve use of established workflows, as well as development of novel ones for interrogation of non-canonical phosphorylation events, and analysis of patient specimens. The fellow will also contribute to the functional characterization of lead candidates emanating from these studies.

    Established expertise in mass spectrometry-based (phospho)proteomics is essential, with the ability to analyse large datasets using appropriate bioinformatics techniques desirable. Knowledge and experience in cell biology and signalling is also desirable.
