The Shanghai Research Center of Hadal Science and Engineering Technology (HAST) of Shanghai Ocean University invites applications for two faculty positions. 1) Analytical Scientist: seeking an expert in analytical mass spectrometry and preferably, with prior experience in high resolution accurate mass spectrometry. The successful applicant will be responsible for maintenance support and day-to-day operations of an ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometer, the Panorama, which will be delivered to HAST in late 2018. Preference will be given to individuals with a proven track record and a combination of skills in laboratory management, instrument troubleshooting, data handling and method development. Extensive experience in the operation of on-line sample preparation, maintenance of vacuum systems, and diagnosis of instrument mechanical and electronic problems is also desired. 2) Research Scientist: We are seeking a highly motivated, collaborative, research scientist for a lab-based position in clumped isotope science. The scientist’s principal responsibility is the design, development, validation and implementation of analytical procedures utilizing the Panorama. This scientist is expected to have a proven track record in clumped isotope research and high productivity in research and publishing. For both positions, applicants should possess a Ph.D. in isotope science or related fields. Applications will continue to be accepted until all available positions are filled.
The Hadal Science and Technology Research Center (HAST) of Shanghai Ocean University invites applications for two faculty positions, one in bioinformatics and one in proteomics. HAST was established to explore the largely unknown hadal zones of the world’s oceans. The center’s activities are a balanced mix of basic and translational scientific research with an emphasis on hadal technology development. We are in the final stage of developing a “movable laboratory” which includes three full ocean depth (FOD) landers, one FOD hybrid AUV/ROV unmanned vehicle (ARV), one FOD human occupied vehicle (HOV), and a dedicated mothership of 5000-ton displacement. Faculty position in Bioinformatics: Preference will be given to candidates conducting high impact research in one of the following areas: genomics, functional genomics, and computational biology algorithm development. Experience in metagenome, metatranscriptome and whole genome analysis is a plus. Faculty position in Proteomics: All areas of proteomic research will be considered, and we are particularly interested in those whose research deals with protein structure, function, and interactions. Applications from researchers with expertise in lipidomics, glycomics, or metabolomics or other biology based omics-disciplines are also encouraged. Candidates with the following qualifications are desired: in-depth understanding of both hardware and software of LC-electrospray MS; proficiency in LC-MS related software and data analysis; and experience in both top-down and bottom-up proteomics. Review and evaluation of applications will begin immediately. Applications will continue to be accepted until all available positions are filled.
