Research Fellow: Proteomics

Biomedical Institute for Global Health Research and Technology (BIGHEART)

National University of Singapore (NUS)

BIGHEART develops innovative healthcare solutions to address current challenges in health and spark major advancements with societal and economic impact. The SurgiCAL ProtEomics Laboratory (SCALPEL) is a laboratory within BIGHEART with a focus on bringing next generation proteomics based platforms (including Electron Spray Ionisation, MALDI Imaging mass spectrometry and Liquid chromatography) with downstream machine learning capabilities into the clinical arena. The laboratory has collaborations within NUS, NUH and a large industry collaboration with Bruker Daltonics. We aim to interrogate subcellular fractions including the secretome, patient derived organoids, surgical effluent, exosomes and single cells. 

Job Description

We are seeking a passionate and self-motivated Research Fellow to join our laboratory. A major aspect of the work is developing innovative techniques in low volume, low abundance protein discovery prior to high sensitivity mass spectrometry analysis. Work will be performed together with the mass spectrometry team in the facility.
