Operating an innovative, end-to-end technology platform, combining start of the art, large-scale mass spectrometry-based proteomics with novel assay formats and custom-built data analytics and visualisation tools. Our services encompass consulting on experimental design and planning, cell and molecular biology, sample processing, mass spectrometry and poly-omics analysis, together with a comprehensive data processing pipeline combined with data analysis and interpretation services.
Your new role
We are looking for a highly motivated data scientist to join our growing team. Reporting to the Head of Platinum Discovery, your role will involve:
Analysis of mass spectrometry / proteomic data (DIA/DDA/TMT/SILAC)
Providing client support with experimental design and data interpretation
Contributing to internal company R&D projects
About you and your experience
You will have relevant prior experience, including the experimental design of proteomics projects (e.g. DDA/DIA based studies analysing proteins and post-translational protein modifications) and will be familiar with the analysis and interpretation of quantitative proteomics data. This role would be suitable for you if you are an experienced proteomics researcher looking to transition from academia into the biotech sector.
You must be able to work both independently and as part of a team and have excellent communication skills. The role includes liaising with clients to advise on the design of experiments and analysis of MS-based proteomics data, together with preparation of reports and data interpretation. You will be able to demonstrate excellent computational skills and will bring to the role broad experience of working with large and complex data sets and in using a wide range of analytical procedures.
Experience at PhD/postdoctoral level with processing proteomics data.
Experience with large scale data analysis.
In depth knowledge of statistics.
Computational skills (experience scripting in R or python).
Impeccable attention to detail.
Highly organised and meticulous.
Ability to meet deadlines and work as part of a team.
Experience in PTM based proteomics.
Experience with cluster computing.
Experience with jupyter, tableau, Plotly, Spotfire or similar.
Why you want to work here
