Pfizer Boulder Research & Development is currently seeking a highly motivated and team-oriented candidate for a Senior Scientist position to help expand our chemical biology and proteomics capabilities in Boulder, CO. The successful candidate will aid in the development and application of chemical biology and innovative mass spectrometry platforms to drive a deeper understanding of our molecules and cellular targets. Relevant workflows include phospho-proteomic analysis of MAPK signaling pathways in response to various kinase/phosphatase inhibitors, small molecule target deconvolution in phenotypic screen studies, and identification of off-target proteins that have high affinity for our drug candidates.

Job Responsibilities:
  • Apply quantitative protein mass spectrometry technologies for chemo-proteomics and general proteomics across the oncology portfolio
  • Design workflows to detect differences in protein phosphorylation between sample sets (drug-sensitive versus resistant cell lines, drug-treated versus control cells, etc.)
  • Develop methods for direct identification of small molecule-targeted kinases
  • Participate in all aspects of laboratory operations including sample preparation, running samples on the MS, and data analysis and interpretation
  • Collaborate on projects with colleagues in Cell Biology, Structural Biology, and Pharmacology departments
  • Evaluate and implement new technologies/methodologies that may enhance proteomic workflows
  • Develop computational workflows for proteomic data analysis
  • Report data, interpret results, and present at project team meetings


Qualifications
  • Ph.D. in chemical biological engineering, biology, biochemistry, or related field is required
  • Extensive hands-on experience in phosphoproteomics and chemical biology is required
  • Expertise in proteomics-based mass spectrometry methods, including sample preparation and familiarity with quantitative proteomics methodologies (ex. SILAC, TMT) is required
  • Extensive hands-on experience in developing computational workflows for processing and statistical analysis of phosphoproteomics data (using Python or R) is required
  • Hands-on experience and strong trouble shooting skills for high-resolution LCMS analysis
  • Experience interpreting mass spectral data to make structural assignments
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and ability to work in a team environment
