Specialist Position in the Biotechnology Center in Southern Taiwan (AS-BCST) of the Agricultural Biotechnology Research Center Academia Sinica, Taiwan

We seek an assistant research specialist to work full-time in the mass spectrometry core facility of AS-BCST, specializing in functional small molecule analysis. The main task of this job is to manage and operate this core facility. The successful candidate will work along with researchers to develop project-based experimental strategies, techniques, and platforms by providing mass spectrometry-related services.

The mass spectrometry core facility was established in 2021 at Academia Sinica Southern campus in Tainan. The core facility is currently equipped with gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS), liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS), and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI/MS), both targeted and untargeted analysis. The services provided include mass spectrometry-based metabolomics, lipidomics, and in situ small molecular analysis. The facility mainly offers services to Academia Sinica but is also open to other research institutes, universities, and industries.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in analytical chemistry and at least three years of experience working with mass spectrometry. Preference will be given to candidates with research experience in metabolomics and small molecule mass spectrometry. Experience with ambient mass spectrometry or imaging mass spectrometry is an advantage. Experience with proteomics is a plus but not required.

Applicants should submit the following materials online at https://abrc.sinica.edu.tw/jobs/?aid=4063&asbcst=Y: (a) Cover letter; (b) Curriculum vitae, including publications; (c) A summary of working experience and research accomplishments; (d) PDF copies of major publications; (e) Names and contact information of three referees.
