Mass Spectrometry & Lab Technologist

Job Summary

The Department of Psychology at Queen’s University is seeking an experienced technologist with previous exposure to mass spectrometry equipment for the position of Mass Spectrometry and Lab Technologist. Reporting to the Principal Investigator (PI), the Mass Spectrometry and Lab Technologist sets up and validates the equipment, and facilitates its smooth operation, ensuring it is available for use by a diverse group of internal and outside-university researchers performing hormone research. This includes tracking and requesting equipment maintenance, implementing and monitoring Health and Safety standards, ordering supplies and managing lab financials. This position requires an individual who understands the lab technology, is able to work autonomously with limited supervision and direction, and who incorporates inclusivity into policies and procedures in a laboratory setting.

This lab will support researchers who wish to incorporate hormones and other analytes into their research, including those who have not been able to do in the past. Much of the research attends to gender, sex, and sexuality, making this a great opportunity for someone looking to perform work with potential for a broad positive impact on society. This mass spectrometry lab is new and in the process of starting up, so this position will allow someone to use their creativity and influence the lab’s organization and management. Though the mass spectrometry lab is new, the PI who will be providing direction has been an award winning researcher for over 15 years, is a Canada 150 Research Chair, and has been elected to the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars, Artists, and Scientists. The Mass Spectrometry and Lab Technologist will join a successful team doing cutting edge research.
