As our new Technician you will assist in the general research projects, with emphasis on proteomics workflows consisting of sample preparation, chromatographic separation, and MS-based characterization and quantitation of peptides and proteins. In addition, you will support the group by measuring intact native proteins with specialized mass spectrometry instrumentation, like HDX, Orbi-traps and TOF’s. Part of your time will be spent managing and running a fee for service to biopharmaceutical companies, by solving ‘research’ questions using native mass spectrometry. You will support the proteomics research by maintaining analytical equipment such as the HPLC (RP, SEC, IEX, HpH), centrifuges, etc. Furthermore, you will maintain the stock of consumables and materials and where needed assist in testing and improving the used methodology and instrumental setup.
We are looking for a hands-on, flexible, self-motivated colleague who is also a team player, open minded and creative and last but not least: you are driven by knowledge and results through your passion and enthusiasm!
