About the job

The position is advertised to recruit an SRF/RF/RA/PO to join a newly funded project led by A/P Ng Kee Woei. This project relates to the development of nanomaterials as matrices to carry out biomolecule-nanomaterial interaction studies using primarily MALDI-ToF mass spectrometry.


Key Responsibilities

  • Conduct thorough literature review and generate periodic updates

  • Carry out nanomaterials synthesis, functionalization, and characterization

  • Carry out MALDI-ToF mass spectrometry to analyse biocorona on nanomaterials

  • Carry out data analysis of mass spectrometry profiles to identify biomarkers

  • Develop analytical software approaches to set up standardized high-throughput data collection and analysis workflows

  • Carry out biochemical and biological assays to understand the bioavailability, biopersistence and toxicity of nanomaterials

  • Develop and optimize protocols

  • Supervise junior research staff, undergraduate and graduate student projects

  • Manage logistical issues and supervise laboratory operations

  • Coordinate collaborative work within multidisciplinary team and external collaborators

  • Generate periodic progress report as required by funding agency
