Research Associate in Proteomics (F/M/D)

Site Evotec

We are seeking a scientist to join our proteomics group based at our Toulouse site with a strong expertise in mass spectrometry (MS) and quantitative proteomics. This role is a laboratory-based position within the proteome screening team of the Translational Proteomics and Metabolomics department. The candidate is expected to work effectively in a highly collaborative matrixed environment and interface with mass-spectrometrists, biologists and bioinformaticians within our teams in Toulouse and Munich (Germany). She/he should be a highly motivated, creative scientist with extensive expertise and track record of success in protein biochemistry and MS-based proteomics. Experience with high-resolution mass spectrometers such as the Q Exactive class (Thermo Fischer) and/or the timsTOF (Bruker) instruments is required. The candidate should also have extensive knowledge of analytical software for the processing and interpretation of quantitative mass spectrometry data, familiarity with programming languages and database software being a plus. The candidate will work closely with the scientist in charge of the proteomics team to expand current capabilities of sample processing, LC/MS operation, and data analysis. Preference will be given to candidates
