Staff Scientist / Postdoc level (all genders) Clinical Proteomics

Research within FCI programs is substantially dependent on central technology platforms to ensure a smooth and reproducible workflow. To achieve this, all FCI platforms rely on staff scientists with a PhD/MD degree and a proven track record in biomedical sciences.


Tasks include the planning and execution of complex proteomics projects and the establishment of innovative mass spectrometry (MS)-based techniques needed for successful accomplishment of the FCI’s goals.


Requirements are a profound expertise in quantitative MS-based proteomics and the respective data analysis including comprehensive proteome analyses and PTM profiling. A strong understanding of general proteomics workflows and LC-MS instrumentation is required and experience in the field of clinical proteomics is appreciated.
Moreover, candidates should have a keen interest in translational cancer research and in providing state-of-the-art technologies to facilitate the development of mechanism-based tumor therapies.

The proteomics platform staff scientist is expected to engage in a multidisciplinary team as part of the FCI core and needs to bring good team communication skills. In addition to a strong expertise in MS-based proteomics a record of successful projects is required for the position.
Contracts are planned for 3 years with the option for extension. The position is located at Goethe University’s campus Niederrad.
