Postdoctoral Researcher in Proteomics
Technical University of Munich
Germany

Postdoctoral researcher (f/m/d) in Proteomics – Mass spectrometry

24.03.2021, Wissenschaftliches Personal

The research team of professor Stefan Lichtenthaler studies the molecular mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s disease, with a focus on microglia and cell surface proteases, such as BACE1, which is a major drug target. Our lab is equipped with state-of-the-art mass spectrometry systems: a Q-Exactive, a Q-Exactive HF, and a timsTOF Pro mass spectrometer. We offer excellent and exciting projects and are part of several larger research consortia in Munich (e.g. DFG-funded excellence cluster SyNergy and Clinspect-M) and of the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) in Munich-Großhadern, a national Center for Excellence in neurodegeneration.

Description of research and laboratory:

The research team of professor Stefan Lichtenthaler studies the molecular mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s disease, with a focus on microglia and cell surface proteases, such as BACE1, which is a major drug target. Our lab is equipped with state-of-the-art mass spectrometry systems: a Q-Exactive, a Q-Exactive HF, and a timsTOF Pro mass spectrometer. We offer excellent and exciting projects and are part of several larger research consortia in Munich (e.g. DFG-funded excellence cluster SyNergy and Clinspect-M) and of the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) in Munich-Großhadern, a national Center for Excellence in neurodegeneration.

The position:

You will optimize proteomic sample preparation and mass spectrometry acquisition methods for high-throughput analysis of cerebrospinal fluid, brain tissue, and primary cell culture secretome analyses. Your position is part of the large proteomic Clinspect-M consortium in Munich, in which we want to bring mass-spectrometry-based proteomics into clinical routine with the aim of fast biomarker measurements from human body fluids. Additionally, you will be involved in the maintenance of our nanoLC-MS/MS systems.

Requirements:

You have a PhD in proteomics, biochemistry, molecular biology or a related field. You have hands-on experience with proteomics and with nanoLC-MS/MS systems and with proteomic data analysis. Experience with biochemical protein assays, such as Western blots, ELISA and cell culture assays, is an advantage. Flexibility and the ability to work in a multidisciplinary environment and on parallel projects are essential. You do not need to have previous knowledge about Alzheimer’s disease or neurodegeneration. You are creative, self-motivated and able to work independently and are fluent in English.

We offer you:

 A varied and professionally demanding position in a state-of-the-art working environment
 Appointment is full time (38.5 weekly working hours) and will be initially for two years with the possibility of renewal.
 Performance-related salary in accordance with the TV-L public-sector salary scale plus attractive benefits offered to public- sector employees

If the candidates’ suitability for the position in question is equal, severely disabled applicants shall be given preference. Interview-related costs can, unfortunately, not be reimbursed.

Applications including motivation letter, CV, publication list and two recommendation letters or references should be sent as a single document via e-mail to: Anke.Moeller@dzne.de
