At Biognosys, we believe that deep proteome insights hold the key to breakthrough discoveries that can dramatically improve human health. We enable life science researchers and drug hunters to look at the proteome from every angle with our versatile portfolio of proprietary next-generation proteomics services, software, and kits, including the TrueDiscovery™, TrueTarget™, and TrueSignature™ platforms and flagship software Spectronaut™. These solutions provide a multi-dimensional view of protein expression, function, and structure in all biological species and sample types. Biognosys’ unique, patented technologies utilize high-resolution mass spectrometry to quantify thousands of proteins across thousands of samples with industry-leading precision, depth, and throughput. Through advanced data analytics, Biognosys translates data into actionable insights for R&D and clinical research.

As a fast growing and developing field, proteomics is transforming into a valuable high content and high throughput technology for identification of novel biomarkers and quantification of known inducers of disease. Limited proteolysis coupled with mass spectrometry (LiP-MS) is a powerful new methodology for exploring structural alterations in complex proteomes, with expanding application in identification of drug-protein interactions. Due to high failure rates in target-centric approaches in drug development, target deconvolution is a major focus of drug research programs, aiming to improve drug safety and efficiency. In this role, you will contribute to the development of novel LiP-MS applications for deconvolution of drug targets.

  • Execution of sample preparation, liquid chromatography mass spectrometry data acquisition and data processing
  • Contribution to method development and method validation activities
  • Management of laboratory equipment
  • Education in biochemistry, biology, bioinformatics, or similar (BSc or MSc.)
  • Previous experience in laboratory work and/or MS
  • Basic knowledge of programming language (R/python) is highly valued
  • Very good knowledge of written and spoken English

We offer a dynamic work atmosphere in a young and motivated team. You will profit from an open and flexible company structure where personal initiative is appreciated and encouraged. Biognosys is backed by strong investors and offers the opportunity to grow together with the company in a promising and innovative market.
