University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus

Department: Biochemistry & Molecular Genetics

Job Title: Post-Doctoral Fellow

Position: #00814186 – Requisition: #30944

Job Summary:

Within the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics, this Post-Doctoral Fellow will be joining a research team to understand blood clotting using state-of-the-art mass spectrometry techniques.

Prospective individuals will join a productive team utilizing state-of-the-art bioanalytical methods to answer complex questions related to bleeding disorders, thromboembolism, and productive wound healing.

The highly motivated candidate will assume responsibility for:
    Participate in one or more research collaborations exploring stroke, post-partum hemorrhage, coronary and pulmonary thrombosis. In vitro and ex vivo blood or plasma clot formation, sample preparation and data analysis for mass spectrometry experiments. Carrying out proteomics analyses for the qualitative and quantitative characterization of crosslinked peptides. Instrumentation quality control. Communication with collaborators about experimental design and results. Assisting with preparation of technical reports, publications, and presentations. Updating computer software as needed.

The position requires strong motivation and commitment, analytical skills, attention to details, software & computer capabilities, and an emphasis on communication and interpersonal skills. The position requires the ability to work independently and part of a team on multiple projects concurrently while maintaining a high level of quality control. Successful candidates will have an opportunity for authorship on original manuscripts based on their work.

Examples of Duties:
    Generate ex vivo and in vitro clot samples. Biomolecule extraction. Preparation and characterization of internal standard solutions. Method comparison and optimization. Maintenance of technical analytical equipment. Exploratory and statistical data analysis Evaluation of software packages Group, department and national presentations

This description is a summary only and describes the general level of work being performed, it is not intended to be all-inclusive. The duties of this position may change from time to time and/or based on business need. We reserve the right to add or delete duties and responsibilities at the discretion of the supervisor and/or hiring authority.

Work Location:

Onsite – this role is expected to work onsite and is located in Aurora, Colorado.

Why Join Us:

Our department conducts research across a wide biological scale for fundamental scientific understanding with applications to many disease contexts. The overarching goal is to reach a level of molecular insight that helps develop therapeutic approaches to disease.

As biochemists and molecular geneticists, we are amid an unprecedented time of discovery - our conception of the molecular biology of cells is going from the equivalent of grainy black-and-white to high-resolution technicolor. From deciphering the choreography of transcription complexes, chromosomes, and RNA molecules within cells to developing novel approaches to 3D molecular structure determination to understanding how viruses hijack a cell's machinery and alter its metabolome, the researchers in Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics (BMG) are at the forefronts of their fields both conceptually and technologically.
