The Mass Spectrometry group at the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Disease is seeking an Associate to aid in the development and application of mass spectrometry workflows to investigate proteomic and metabolomic changes, which occur in body fluids and tissues during viral and bacterial infection. The candidate will also be responsible for maintaining and running of the 7T FTICR and Triple Quadrapole mass spectrometry platforms for various projects. The ideal candidate will be familiar with the use of MALDI-FTICR MS imaging for the detection of peptides, small molecule metabolites and lipids in tissue sections in various animal models of infectious disease. We have a highly integrated work environment and work on many team and collaborative projects across multiple capabilities and disciplines. The candidate should have expertise in proteomic and metabolomics sample preparation methods, various separation modalities, data acquisition, data processing, and data interpretation. Candidates with additional expertise in top-down proteomics, metabolite detection by LC-MS, and tandem mass spectrometry are particularly encouraged.
