Job Description

POSITION SUMMARY:The Researcher II will support the OBP Laboratory of Immunology by investigating the immunology and biochemistry of drug hypersensitivity. The Researcher II will also perform in vitro immunology experiments including bioanalytical methods to characterize drug induced changes in cell proteomics and immuno-proteomics.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Develop and validate chromatographic and mass spectrometry-based assays for immuneproteomics of HLA presented peptides and small molecules.
  • Produce reports for reliable, sensitive, and validated immunological methods of analyses (prepares, edit, and designate project reports)
  • Perform analysis of mass spectrometry data in order to identify sequences of peptides and modifications using software including PEAKS.
  • Preparation of standard operating procedures (SOP) and protocols for method validation of immunological assays.
  • Ensure that all work is in compliance with all pertinent SOPs and safe work practices.
  • Other duties as assigned.

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS:
