The research group of Prof. Renato Zenobi at the Laboratory for Organic Chemistry at ETH Zurich invites applications for
Two PhD Positions in Mass Spectrometry
We seek to fill two PhD positions in our research group in the course of 2018-2019. The topics of the PhD theses will be in one of the following areas; Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry, assisted by high-mass detection and chemical cross-linking to investigate large proteins and multi-protein complexes, in particular membrane-bound proteins and protein complexes, - Application of native electrospray ionization (ESI) mass spectrometry to study noncovalent interactions, especially of complex biomolecular systems with cofactors and multiple ligand binding sites. We work mostly with ESI-MS titration and competition methods.
Prerequisites are a M.Sc. degree, Diploma or equivalent in Analytical Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Biochmistry or related area, strong interest in the development and application of modern instrumentation. The Starting date is as early as May-June 2018 (position is available immediately), or upon mutual agreement.
