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

Division
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

Duties
The candidate will participate in the Horizon 2020 project TopSpec, performing research concerning designing and application for top-down antibody sequencing of a novel and highly versatile tandem mass spectrometer based on an Orbitrap mass analyzer connected to an omnitrap and a number of other devices. The goal is to test and validate the performance of TopSpec to top-down analysis of antibodies, and to explore new methods of gas-phase fragmentation.

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 instrument design. Good knowledge of a programming language, as well as spoken and written English are absolutely required.

Application process
An employment application must contain the following documents in English:

  • Curriculum vitae and qualifications
  • Verification from the thesis defense committee or the equivalent (only if the thesis defense is scheduled within six months after the application deadline)
  • A complete list of publications
  • A summary of current work (no more than one page) and a research statement
  • Addresses of two established researchers who agreed to serve as references

The application is to be submitted through the Varbi recruitment system.
