We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic data scientist who will develop clinically compliant parallel-computing solutions based on existing Bruker PaSER technology. Will you join our team?
In this project we aim to develop GPU-powered parallel computing solutions for real-time data processing, analysis and acquisition parameter adjustment to enable the use of four dimensional (glyco)proteomics data in routine patient care.
You will actively interact with Translational Metabolic Laboratory (TML) and Bruker scientists to investigate and apply the potential advantages of collisional cross section information for (glyco)peptide analysis in complex patient samples. Acquired knowledge will be included for the implementation of real-time (glyco)peptide data processing and analysis software to enable on-the-fly adjustment of data acquisition parameters next to ready-when-run results generation capabilities to resolve the current data processing bottlenecks in functional Omics.
The position is formally housed within the (glyco)proteomics team of TML where technology innovations by the post-doc will be directly utilized to advance patient care. As this position is at the heart of our TML-Bruker joint Center of Excellence in Translational Omics, regular international project meetings will be held with project members. You will have direct access to knowledge and support from application and R&D experts of both partners during this project.
Tasks and responsibilities:
- Research the added value of collision cross section data for (glyco)peptide analysis in combination with tandem mass spectrometry.
- Develop and implement clinically-compliant real-time data processing and analysis solutions for (glyco)proteomics based diagnostics.
- You are involved in pre-development and research activities with external collaborators at Bruker and act as a link between the clinical research and software development teams.
