We are offering a key position within the mass spectrometry-based Core Facility at the International Clinical Research Center of St. Anne´s University Hospital in Brno (FNUSA‑ICRC). We are seeking an experienced professional in any field of mass spectrometry application in life sciences (proteomics, metabolomics, MS imaging).
About Mass Spectrometry Core Facility (MS CF)
The core started in April 2017 as the youngest research platform with the main objective to create a service based infrastructure supporting ICRC researchers by providing both, an access to high‑end MS technology and expertise in proteomics. The core is currently fully functional and supports both, internal and external researchers either in a form of proteomics services (https://www.fnusa-icrc.org/cz/vyzkum-icrc/vyzkumne-skupiny/servisni-laboratore/hmotnostni-spektrometrie) or via res. collaborations.
