Postdoctoral Associate Position

Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q), Cornell University

In a pioneering international initiative, Cornell University and Weill Cornell Medical College established Weill Cornell Medicine – Qatar (WCM-Q) in 2002 through a unique partnership with the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development.
The WCM-Q Proteomics Research Group, led by Dr. Frank Schmidt, invites applications for a postdoctoral position in Proteomics and Immunoproteomics in the field of diabetes as part of the NPRP12 grant. We offer the latest technologies and expertise for quantitative proteomics, multiplex proteomics such as Olink or FLEXMAP3D, and enhanced bioinformatics. Our group is technically and internationally diverse and embedded in an excellent environment for high-quality research and collaboration. We are now looking for a highly motivated and qualified postdoctoral candidate to join our Research Group.
WCM-Q is located in Education City, alongside a number of other American universities, in Doha, Qatar, which is a rapidly growing research hub. The WCM-Q research program offers a collaborative, multidisciplinary team environment, endowed with a comprehensive support infrastructure.

Specific Responsibilities
The candidate will use a combination of cutting-edge proteomics and immunoproteomics methods to investigate biofluid- or tissue-specific molecules in samples with a diabetic background. He will include proteome-wide quantification by mass spectrometry, immuno-based analysis of protein-AB interactions and analysis of post-translational modifications.
Must Have
• PhD degree or equivalent in natural or medical science
• Excellent scientific track record, including publications in high-quality, peer-reviewed international journals are expected
Should Have
Expert knowledge in one or more of the following areas would be considered as an advantage:
• Hands-on experience in high-resolution mass spectrometry
• Experience in immunoproteomics or multiplex analysis
• Background in diabetes

Essential Skills
• Good communication skills, both oral and written
• Demonstrate enthusiasm, motivation, flexibility, and confidence
• The stipend offered is commensurate with experience. Fully furnished housing and transportation allowance are also provided, if eligible.
Qualified applicants are invited to submit a letter of application outlining their interest in the position and how their skills and experience match WCM-Q’s requirements, along with their curriculum vitae, which should include the names and contact details of three referees.
