The main responsibilities will be identifying and characterizing proteins using mass-spectrometry in support of our novel protein discovery efforts. The primary analytical technology is nanoLC/MS/MS and LC-MS/MS using Orbitrap and Q-Trap instruments. This position is highly suited to someone who has demonstrable hands-on experience with protein identification and quantification using LC/MS, and is excited about applying their skills towards discovering novel traits of agricultural interest. The ideal candidate will be someone who is able to work independently and solve problems of scientific or technical nature. Providing input to project plans, refining assays and maintaining analytical rigor will be part of the daily work. The position allows for learning and development in many areas of trait discovery.Responsibilities
