Dalton Bioanalytics is a UCLA spin-off startup digitizing the biochemical composition of blood. Using Mass Spectrometry, Dalton analyzes protein, lipids, electrolytes, nutrients, environmental chemicals, drugs and other small molecules with just one assay, for the first time in history. We are developing a platform using this technology to empower researchers and scientists to understand and discover new biochemical compositions for bioprocessing, biomarker discovery, pharmaceutical, foods, and diagnostics industry.
We are seeking for an individual to aid in the analysis of mass spectrometry-based multi-omics datasets and to help develop appropriate experimental designs for future experiments. Applicants must be comfortable working with very large datasets that encompass projects from diverse areas of research. Applicants must be self-motivated to research new analysis techniques to aid in laboratory efforts and be able to effectively communicate both results and methodologies to the Director and its collaborators.
