We are seeking a highly motivated candidate as a research assistant in the Quantitative Proteomics Core in collaboration with the Kappei lab at the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore (CSI). Our team addresses research questions on nucleic acid-protein interactions with quantitative mass spectrometry, cell biological and genetic approaches applied to cancer research and we further support research activities at CSI as part of the Quantitative Proteomics Core with quantitative proteomics solutions to study protein expression, protein interactions as well as post-translational modifications. Specifically, the successful candidate will support the team in terms of sample processing, maintenance of the mass spectrometer, establishing of novel proteomics approaches with a particular focus on Clinical Proteomics applications. In addition, the work scope will include administrative duties (including ordering and budgeting) and general laboratory organization (including safety standards). We are offering a position in a stimulating, diverse and international research environment as well as the opportunity to gain expertise in a highly demanded technology.
- Degree in life sciences or equivalent; fresh graduates are welcome to apply
- Excellent communication skills and good team spirit
- Fluent in spoken and written English
- Outstanding organizational skills
Practical experience with mass spectrometry work and molecular biology techniques are an added advantage but not a requirement.
Applications should include in a single PDF a 1-page cover letter, curriculum vitae, certificates of qualifications and the names and contact information of at least 2 professional references. Please send applications with the reference “Quantitative Proteomics RA” to:
Dr. Dennis Kappei
