The Savitski team are looking for a computational scientist to join the Proteomic Core Facility at EMBL Heidelberg. The Proteomic Core Facility provides scientific support for scientists at EMBL Heidelberg and its outstations, in the areas of proteomics and structural biology. We offer services in the characterization of proteins and peptides by mass spectrometry, for which we have a range of mass spectrometers and nano-flow liquid chromatography systems. This results in generation of large scale data sets that need to be processed in a high-quality, reproducible, and timely manner. The successful candidate will establish and maintain an analysis pipeline for diverse proteomics workflows at the EMBL proteomics core facility. This will involve establishing file handling workflows, automatic generation and archiving of results, and algorithmic implementation/development.
Qualifications and Experience:
The ideal candidate should have a Master or Doctoral degree in computer science / mathematics / physics / bioinformatics or in one of the life sciences. The successful candidate will have a strong programming background (incl. Python) and familiarity with algorithmic development. A good reference is the open source isobarQuant software which is described in Franken et al Nature Protocols 2015. Familiarity with proteomics data is a plus. Good communication skills and fluency in English are essential.
