The ideal candidate must have a PhD in a relevant field, proven expertise in quantitative proteomics research, strong background in chromatographic techniques, sample preparation, analysis of highly complex samples, study of post-translational modifications using phosphoproteomic approaches, and application of different quantitative techniques.  Preference will be given to candidates with in-depth understanding and extensive hand-on experiences on different mass spectrometers, such as linear ion trap, triple-quadrupole or LTQ-FT/Orbitrap.


Our research uses of a combination of multi-targeted, and large scale approaches, including proteomics, analysis of synaptic signaling complexes, post translational modification studies, computational biology and mouse genetics, directed to the analysis of cell signaling networks, their role controlling synaptic function and the mechanisms affecting disease.


Of particular interest is the characterization of the molecular and cellular circuits impacted by mutations causing neurodevelopmental  and psychiatric diseases。
