Caprion Biosciences Inc. is a leading clinical research organization (CRO) laboratory in immune monitoring, protein characterization and tissue pathology solutions for immunotherapy and drug development.
We are located in Montreal, California, Chicago, Belgium, UK, Australia and soon in China. Employees at Caprion are true scientific partners working together to enhance people’s health and quality of life.
SummaryThis individual will work independently but closely with proteomics and bioinformatics scientists in a results-driven, collaborative environment.
He / she will be responsible for the choice of experimental methodology, carrying out the analyses and providing interpretations and conclusions from the results in a report for each project in a timely fashion.
The successful candidate will also advise the scientific team on general biomarker discovery questions, platform design, study design, and data analysis.
The Senior Scientist is expected to propose and implement new sample analysis procedures and / or improve existing ones.
The focus will be on conducting label-free differential quantification and identification of protein biomarkers using the Thermo QExactive as well as conducting MRM-based assays for marker verification and validation, using the Ab Sciex QTRAP systems.
