As an Associate Scientist, you will support cutting-edge mass spectrometry-focused functional proteomics research at Prof. Andrew Emili’s Collaboratory for Network Systems Biology (CNSB), part of the Knight Cancer Institute at Oregon Health and Science University. Major new project initiatives involve interrogation of primary patient specimens, tissue specimens from animal models of disease, and engineered cell culture systems, to characterize the macromolecules and biological pathways altered in disease states, as well as the mechanisms of action of bioactive compounds.
Every Knight Cancer employee is expected to embody our guiding principles:
The primary role for the candidate will be to support serve as the principal proteomic mass spectrometry support expert for the group. This role will involve the operation, maintenance and support of high-performance LC/MS instrumentation, and participation as lead scientist on select projects throughout their lifespan including providing significant input on experimental study design, control inclusion and placement, data acquisition strategies and, critically, the analysis, mining and interpretation of datasets.
Additional and important roles for the candidate will involve providing support in sample preparation, method development, instrument optimization, and organized tracking of instrument use, samples, datasets, methods (both experimental and analytic) over collective studies. The candidate will be required to explore and apply new MS proteomic capabilities as they emerge, and will need to scale analytic platforms and algorithms for highly scaled collaborative studies.
The candidate will demonstrate the ability to independently design, execute and interpret proteomic method development studies critical to the evolution of our workflows to support advanced sample interrogation. The candidate should be inquisitive and highly motivated, and be able to operate effectively with internal team members and actively solicit input from expert external analytic consultants and collaborators. The candidate will on occasion oversee more junior analysts and experimental researchers and train them on appropriate methods and approaches to build wider team expertise.
Duties Include but are not limited to:
Apply online. Please be sure to upload a Cover Letter and Resume/CV.
