Fellowship posted by Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (03/03/2013 03.34)

Development and implementation of novel protocols in proteomics and applications in agri-food and environmental sciences

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The grant has several technical and scientific purposes. Regarding the technical aspects, the post doc will be involved in the improvement and development of current MS quantification techniques, both in terms of improvement of protein identification number per single experiment and in terms of the setting up of novel and unexpensive procedures. The main quantification methods used will be the isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantification (iTRAQ) and the multiplex peptide stable isotope dimethyl labeling. These techniques will then be applied in several projects in the agro-food and environmental area.

The research fellow should have experiences with protein extraction and purification protocols and with standard biochemical procedures. He/she should also have proven experience with LC-MS/MS techniques and instrumentation; experience on MALDI TOF/TOF and Orbitrap-XL would be an asset.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
