The Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) is offering three candidates two-year technical training fellowships (TT-V) funded by FAPESP to participate in a project to develop and implement single-cell proteomics analysis. This work will be carried out within the mass spectrometry group at the Brazilian Biosciences Laboratory (LNBio) at CNPEM.
About the project
The candidates will be part of the Mass Spectrometry Laboratory at LNBio/CNPEM, and will work on the development and implementation of single-cell proteomics within the context of a multi-user laboratory. This will take place in three stages: characterizing cell populations, analysis using single-cell proteomics, and data analysis.
Responsibilities and requirements
- Position 1: The candidate will be responsible for developing methods for cellular characterization and immunophenotyping using flow cytometry to understand the proteome of heterogeneous cellular subpopulations.
- Position 2: The candidate will be responsible for single-cell proteomics via liquid chromatography linked to mass spectrometry, and processing and analysis of the resulting data. This opportunity requires a completed doctorate degree and experience with proteomics analysis.
- Position 3: The candidate will be responsible for analyzing data from single-cell proteomics and should have strong programming skills. A doctorate in bioinformatics is required, along with experience in transcriptomics data analysis; interest or experience in mass spectrometry-based proteomics data analysis is also strongly desired.
All candidates must meet FAPESP scholarship requirements. More information about the requirements and funding for TT-V fellowships can be found here.
How to apply
Candidates should send a cover letter, CV, and two contacts for recommendations to Adriana F. Paes Leme (firstname.lastname@example.org) by October 20, 2023; other questions can also be directed to this email address. The fellowships are scheduled to begin on February 1, 2024.
A sophisticated and effervescent environment for research and development, unique in Brazil and present in few scientific centers in the world, the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) is a private non-profit organization, under the supervision of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI). The Center operates four National Laboratories and is the birthplace of the most complex project in Brazilian science – Sirius – one of the most advanced synchrotron light sources in the world. CNPEM brings together highly specialized multi-thematic teams, globally competitive laboratory infrastructures open to the scientific community, strategic lines of investigation, innovative projects in partnership with the productive sector and training of researchers and students. The Center is an environment driven by the search for solutions with impact in the areas of Health, Energy and Renewable Materials, Agro-environment, and Quantum Technologies. As of 2022, with the support of the Ministry of Education (MEC), CNPEM expanded its activities with the opening of the Ilum School of Science. The interdisciplinary higher course in Science, Technology and Innovation adopts innovative proposals with the aim of offering excellent, free, full-time training with immersion in the CNPEM research environment. Through the CNPEM 360 Platform, it is possible to explore, in a virtual and immersive way, the main environments and activities of the Center, visit: https://pages.cnpem.br/cnpem360/.
