  • PhD in Biology with relevant research experience
  • knowledge of and experience with proteomics
  • affinity for experiments with invertebrates
  • proficiency with statistical approaches and use of R
  • English language proficiency both in speech and in writing

Responsibilities/Job Description

We are looking for an early-career postdoc researcher to join our on-going project investigating the evolution of seminal fluid proteins in freshwater snail species (funded by Dutch Research Council, NWO). The aim of this project is to comprehensively identify seminal fluid proteins in the great pond snail Lymnaea stagnalis, as part of our goal to examine whether seminal fluid proteins evolve rapidly in hermaphroditic species. The candidate is expected to have a strong background in proteomics, be able to conduct lab work and data analyses independently, as well as be able to communicate and collaborate with other members in this project (and our research group). Although experience and knowledge of evolutionary genetics is not required, the willingness to exchange knowledge is essential.

Your duties

  • extract and identify seminal fluid proteins for proteomics
  • analyse and interpret proteomics data
  • describe (transferred) proteome of the great pond snail’s prostate gland
