Applications are invited for the post of Proteomics Facility Manager at the MRC Toxicology Unit, whose main role will be to manage and develop the Unit’s Proteomics Facility.

The Proteomics Facility performs a fundamental role in tackling proteomic-based problems for the Unit’s research programmes in order to support the effective delivery of research activity. The successful candidate will provide expertise and high level advice in proteomics and mass-spec based techniques to research staff and participate in research projects and new method development as required. Using state of the art instrumentation the post holder will perform experiments to isolate and identify unknown proteins and be responsible for operating and maintaining the specialist equipment.
