Our mission as research center: Discover personalized medical solutions for environmentally triggered diseases to promote a healthier society in a rapidly changing world.

The CLINSPECT-M project, funded by the BMBF, brings together an outstanding team of Munich-based experts in proteomics, medicine and informatics to perform cutting edge research on diseases of the nervous system. The goal is to drive technological innovations, and address important societal challenges. Focusing on brain patho-physiology, our overarching research goals are to demonstrate that mass spectrometry in systems medicine is technically and logistically feasible, generates novel insights into disease biology, uncovers biomarkers for diagnosis, prognosis and treatment response and provides clinical translation opportunities aiding clinical decision making for individual patients.

Your responsibilities

Your role in the project will be to drive mass spectrometry innovations by integrating the best methods on all levels of the LC-MS/MS process and by benchmarking the participating labs (round robin challenges).

You will develop MS-based assays for specific clinically relevant marker proteins, including absolute quantification strategies, the assessment of intra- and inter-assay variability, stability and selectivity of reagents, and the determination of limits of detection/quantification.

You will achieve this in close cooperation with all CLINSPECT-M partners and you will actively participate in the scientific symposia of the consortium.

Your qualifications

  • PhD in biochemistry, biology, chemistry or a comparable qualification
  • Strong background in (bio) informatics and statistics
  • Experience with LC-MS/MS (direct hands on machines!) and protein biochemistry
  • Experience with the quantitative analysis of proteomics data
  • Excellent team spirit with a talent to integrate in a multidisciplinary collaboration
  • Fluent English and scientific writing skills
