The Schriemer Laboratory in Structural Mass Spectrometry is looking for talented, creative scientists with background in mass spectrometry, proteomics, structural biology or software development. Our work is focused on advancing integrative methods in structural biology using mass spec data, designed to extend accurate protein modeling to the interactome.  These activities take place in a strongly thematic environment, involving structure-function problems in mitotic regulation and DNA damage repair.  The combined activities create new opportunities for anti-cancer therapy development.

 

We have an immediate need for individuals in the following areas:

 

Mass spectrometry (PDF level, students).  Projects involve novel topographical labeling methods for protein structure-building activities. The candidate will also have an opportunity to participate in the Catalyst Program, designed to foster proteomics collaborations within the Faculty of Medicine.

 

Software development (senior undergraduate and higher).  Projects involve the adoption and development of algorithms for data analysis, data acquisition and data visualization, to support proteomics, structural mass spec and metabolomics.  Activities will build upon a new mass spec app developer’s framework produced in the Schriemer lab.

 

Biochemistry  (students, PDF).  Projects involve isolation of protein complexes, protein production and reconstitution of protein complexes for structural analysis.
