Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, Chemistry I

Division of Physiological Chemistry I  https://ki.se/en/mbb/research-division-of-physiological-chemistry-i stems from the laboratory of Jöns Jacob Berzelius (1779- 1848), the great Swedish scientist known for a variety of achievements. These include the discovery, together with his co-workers, of six new elements. Berzelius, the first Chemistry professor at KI, was an avid proponent of mass measurements, having published in 1818 a table of accurate weights of 45 out of the 49 known elements. Continuing Berzelius’ tradition, the Division bases its research on mass spectrometry. It also hosts a core facility that performs proteomics analyses. One of the focal points of Division’s research is method development for proteomics.

The candidate will perform research concerning designing and application of novel methods involving high-resolution tandem mass spectrometry of proteins, and application of these methods in biology and medicine.

Entry requirements
A person is eligible for a position as postdoctoral research fellow if he or she has obtained a PhD no more than four years before the last date of employment as postdoc. The ideal candidate will have proven experience in analytical chemistry, proteomics and mass spectrometry, as well as in bioinformatics. Working knowledge of a programming language, as well as spoken and written English are absolutely required.
