Scientist (m/f/d) with Ph.D. degree in the field of bioanalytics and protein characterisation using mass spectrometry

The NMI is a member of the Innovation Alliance Baden-Württemberg. It is involved in application-oriented research at the interface between life sciences and material science. An interdisciplinary team of scientists is developing new technologies for companies and public research sponsors in the areas of Pharma and Biotech, Biomedicine and Materials Science, and Material Analysis and Electron Microscopy.

The "Bioanalytics" group at the NMI specializes in the customer-specific analysis of biologicals (including antibodies and recombinant binding proteins). At the same time, new technologies and applications are continuously being established to expand the existing method portfolio and validated in internal and collaborative research approaches. To strengthen our team we are looking for a scientist with a PhD (m/f/d).

Your tasks

  • Characterization of intact antibodies and binding proteins by mass spectrometry (LC-MS).
  • Characterization of antibodies and binding proteins from enzymatic digestion by nanoLC-MS/MS
  • Epitope characterization and elucidation of protein-protein interaction sites using hydrogen-deuterium exchange coupled to mass spectrometry
  • Development and establishment of new enzymes for the deglycosylation of proteins

In an increasingly regulatory environment with a corresponding quality management (QM) system, you will support the group with:

  • Documentation and preparation of appropriate reports for the client
  • Preparation of method-specific work instructions and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)
  • Instruction and qualification of employees


  • Academic degree and doctorate (PhD) in biochemistry or comparable natural science subjects
  • In-depth knowledge and experience in bioanalytics, protein characterization, protein conjugation and HDX-MS
  • Experience in the planning of experiments as well as the analysis of data and the corresponding documentation of results
  • Very good communication skills and ability to work in a team
  • Very good written and oral German and English skills

We Offer

  • A highly motivated team of specialists in protein analysis and modern technical equipment (Q-TOF and orbitrap-linear ion trap technology)
  • The opportunity to work independently under excellent supervision and to gain practical experimental experience
  • Recruitment and remuneration are in accordance with TV-L (Tarifvertrag der Länder). The position is initially limited to 2 years.
