This Job Expires In :
Application for the position of Postdoctoral Fellow in Proteomics at TCRC (Tata Medical Center)
Last date of Application: 9/6/2020
In this position, you will work as part of the proteomics group at TTCRC. The group uses proteomics-based high-throughput discovery approaches for proteogenomic studies. The group’s work is focussed presently on two cancers, acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and gallbladder cancer. The group is supported by a dedicated tissue biorepository, a clinical research unit, genomics, cell biology and informatics analyses. Access to resources includes confocal microscopy, flow cytometry, dedicated tissue culture facility, virus transduction facility, next-generation sequencing platform and mass spectroscopy. Your primary responsibility will be to continue, optimise and extend ongoing work on developing, establishing suitable approaches for discovery proteomics from cells and tissue samples. You will train and teach research assistants, plan and oversee MS measurements, quantitative MS data analysis and interpretation. The candidate will work with the other scientists and research assistant in proteomic and is expected to expand current capabilities of sample processing, LC/MS operation, and data analysis. You will also collaborate with other teams within interdisciplinary research projects. This will involve working closely with the hospital’s multidisciplinary clinical service, the tissue biorepository unit and colleagues in the cancer cell biology, genomics group. You will also participate in downstream functional studies that will use these model cell systems to investigate disease biology and identify therapeutic opportunities. The post holder will have a designated desk and computer.
