Job description

Within the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, we are looking for a new faculty member to join our Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics group. Our research programme is part of the renowned Utrecht Institute for Pharmaceutical Sciences (UIPS).

Your focus in this position will be on proteomics with applications in tumor immunology and cancer. As a mass spectrometry expert, you will pursue opportunities for proteomics research in areas related to antigen presentation, tumor micro-environments, secretomics, single cell and spatial proteomics, and systems and quantitative biology. In addition, you are skilled in analytical and computational method development and desire to further contributions in these areas.

You will strengthen the excellent international scientific profile of UIPS and its central mission of studying molecular mechanisms of disease. You will establish collaborations within UIPS, the Faculty of Science , the UMCU, the Princess Maxima Centre, the Hubrecht Institute, and with other national and international institutes, in particular in connection to the ONCODE-PACT programme.  

You will participate in the organization and management activities related to UIPS research and education programs and strengthen the Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics group. You are enthusiastic to lead teaching activities at both BSc and MSc level and supervise research projects of Postdoctoral Researchers, PhD candidates and MSc students.

We are open to applicants at both junior and more matured level of their career stages. In addition to the experience you bring, it is essential that you make a positive contribution to our research group with your passion for research and teaching.

A better future for everyone. This ambition motivates our scientists in executing their leading research and inspiring teaching. At Utrecht University, the various disciplines collaborate intensively towards major strategic themes. Our focus is on Dynamics of Youth, Institutions for Open Societies, Life Sciences and Sustainability.

At the Faculty of Science, there are 6 departments to make a fundamental connection with: Biology, Chemistry, Information and Computing Sciences, Mathematics, Pharmaceutical Sciences, and Physics. Each of these is made up of distinct institutes that work together to focus on answering some of humanity’s most pressing problems. More fundamental still are the individual research groups – the building blocks of our ambitious scientific projects. Find out more about us.

The Utrecht Institute for Pharmaceutical Sciences (UIPS) is the research institute of the department of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Utrecht University. UIPS focuses on processes around discovery, development, and use of drugs and medical nutrition using molecular and technological principles from the Natural and Life Sciences. This research is well positioned in the Faculty of Science to work on basic scientific problems and to translate new findings into potential solutions to urgent societal medical needs, which are addressed in the Faculties of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. Every year around 400 peer-reviewed articles are published and around 30 PhD candidates defend their thesis. UIPS is partner in several open-source innovation networks.

You will be embedded in the division of Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics. The research in this division focuses on the use of mass spectrometry based enabling technologies to deeply understand the inner workings of cells at the molecular level. Mass spectrometry enables the characterization of molecules that are present in cells and allows thereby the identification, quantification and characterization of proteins and other biomolecules that work together and are involved in all cellular processes. The group houses an excellent infrastructure that includes more than a dozen state-of-the-art mass spectrometers, combined with cell culture facilities and access to microscopes etc. The group is world-renown for mass spectrometry-based proteomics and structural biology, and applies these technologies to study amongst others cancer, auto-immune disorders, immunology, infections, and infectious diseases. Additionally, the group is on the forefront of developing new mass spectrometry based technologies in chemical proteomics, structural biology and the analysis of protein post-translational modifications.
