Post-doctoral position in structural glycobiology

A post-doctoral position funded by the ANR project GAGOsynth is available for a structural biologist in the team “Structural Glycobiology and Neurobiology” at the AFMB laboratory, Marseille, France.

We are seeking for an enthusiastic, highly motivated and creative individual with solid knowledge and expertise in structural biology and biochemistry to investigate the structure-function relationships of enzyme complexes involved in heparan sulfate (HS) biosynthesis in collaboration with the groups of Hugues Lortat-Jacob and Guy Schoehn at IBS (Grenoble, France). In particular, we aim at deciphering how the concerted action of HS biosynthetic enzymes can encode defined oligosaccharide motifs along the polymer to modulate activity of various protein ligands.

Candidates must have a recent Ph.D. (or being in the process of completing one) in a relevant field with a demonstrated record of productive research. Experience in protein expression, particularly in eukaryotic cells, in biochemistry, and in X-ray crystallography or single particle cryo-EM is highly desirable.

Applicants are invited to submit i) a cover letter describing research interests, ii) a CV and iii) the names and contact details of three references to yves.bourne

Position open as long as this advert is posted.
