A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Professor Blagoy Blagoev at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark, Odense. Invited are applications from outstanding candidates with a keen interest in applying mass spectrometry-based proteomics to understand the molecular basis underlying cell signaling. The position is for one to three years with a possibility for extension.
The research group integrates mass spectrometry-based proteomics and bioinformatics with molecular and cell biology to study dynamic signaling networks and their regulation by post-translation modifications, like phosphorylation and ubiquitylation. The research team main interests cover tyrosine kinase signaling, stem cell differentiation and aberrant signaling properties associated with human diseases (see e.g. Barrio- Hernandez I et al., 2020 Genome Research; Akimov V et al., 2018 Nat Struct Mol Biol; Sanchez-Quiles V et al., 2017 Mol Cell Proteomics; Rigbolt KT et al., 2011 Science Signaling).
The qualified applicant should hold a PhD degree and documented background in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Biomedical Sciences or related. Documented expertise in protein mass spectrometry or cell signaling research are compulsory. Experience with bioinformatics/computational data analysis aspects of quantitative proteomics will be greatly valued. Additional experience with large-scale analysis of post- translational modifications would be of further advantage. The successful applicant will primarily use quantitative proteomic approaches to study protein-protein interactions and post-translational modifications such as phosphorylation and ubiquitination, in regard to regulation of mammalian signaling networks. The position focuses mainly on successfully funded projects, without excluding the possibility of the candidates to work on additional research projects of interest.
