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.
