Do you Fancy moving to London?:

The London Research Institute has an opening in the Protein Analysis and Proteomics (PAP) group at the Clare Hall laboratories for a highly qualified mass spectrometry (LC-MS) data analyst with data management and statistical programming skills.

About the job

High throughput bioanalytical technologies such as mass spectrometry generate an increasingly large volume of complex data that needs to be analysed, indexed and stored. In a world-class research environment such as the LRI it is essential that the analytical informatics is tailored to the needs of the individual research groups and up to date with the constantly evolving technology. We are therefore looking for creative informatician to build upon our existing solutions (Mascot, Maxquant, Prohits, Proteus, etc) and to design and maintain a world class mass spectrometry informatics suite fulfilling the Institute’s current needs and those of the new Francis Crick Institute ( where the group will be housed from 2016. As a member of PAP you will be reporting to Dr Bram Snijders. Furthermore, you will interact closely with scientist across the LRI to discuss and analyse data and you will be part of the wider LRI bioinformatics community with close ties to the Bioinformatics and BioStatistics group (BABS,

About You

The ideal candidate has a post graduate degree in bioinformatics but we are also encouraging applications from strong candidates with other computing backgrounds who are keen to get involved in the emerging technology of bioanalytical mass spectrometry.
