Closing Date:

Overview Of Role

This post is one of five exciting opportunities to join a major 5-year BBSRC-funded programme, entitled: “What controls protein abundance in plants?”. The project aims to understand the relative impacts of genetic, sequence, epigenetic, transcriptomic and proteomic variation on phenotype in the plant Arabidopsis thaliana and is a collaboration between Rothamsted Research, UCL, and the University of Cambridge.

The successful candidate will be based at Rothamsted Research but will collaborate closely with the project partners, so the ability to work in a team is essential.

You will be an enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher with experience in quantitative proteomics, including a working knowledge of protein mass spectrometry. Ideally, you will have experience in protein extraction and isobaric labelling, preferably with plant material, and experience in label-free proteomics is desirable. Experience in analysis of translation and protein network analysis would also be advantageous.
 
This is a full-time, three year post, with a salary in the range of £31,350- £32,315 per annum.
