Glycomics and proteomics of neurological diseases.
Boston University Medical Campus
We are recruiting a post-doctoral associate to work on a new NIH-supported project in the Zaia group at Boston University.
https://www.bumc.bu.edu/biochemistry/profiles/joseph-zaia/
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia and a serious economic burden. While cerebrovascular integrity is essential for brain metabolism, its dysfunction plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease. The goal of this project is to elucidate the functional interplay between cerebrovascular remodeling and Alzheimer’s disease progression. The hypothesis is that structural and functional alterations in cerebrovasculature is correlated with neurodegeneration. Working in a multidisciplinary team, we are correlating vascular mechanobiology, optical imaging, neuropathology, glycomics and proteomics in an effort to discover new molecular mechanisms and treatment options for Alzheimer’s disease.
We seek a postdoctoral scientist with experience in glycomics and/or proteomics for this project. The project will involve quantitative glycomics and proteomics of cerebrovasculature. The postdoctoral scientist will conduct brain tissue sample preparation and glyco/proteomics LC-MS experiments. S/He will work within a collaborative team including mechanobiologists, biochemists, analytical chemists, bioinformaticians and neuropathologists to develop and validate a statistically rigorous changes to cerebrovascular glyco/protein structure that occur during Alzheimer’s disease progression.
Competitive salary and benefits are available commensurate with experience. Fluent spoken English, a strong publication track record, and a cooperative attitude are a must for this position. The Zaia group is part of the Center for Biomedical Mass Spectrometry at Boston University. This highly collaborative group provides excellent opportunities for career development of a young Ph.D. scientist.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Translational Glycobiology
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia/University of Pennsylvania
The congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDG) are a group of rare genetic disorders that disrupt the cellular glycosylation machinery. Affected patients exhibit severe neurological deficits. The genetic basis of CDG provides an opportunity to identify the neurobiological functions of glycosylation using mouse models and glycoproteomics.

Dr. Andrew Edmondson is an enthusiastic new PI who seeks a postdoctoral fellow to help uncover the molecular mechanisms underlying dysfunctional glycosylation in mouse and cellular models of CDG. The successful candidate will be self-motivated and hard-working, with strong molecular biology skills (Western blot, qPCR, cell culture), as well as prior experience working with mice and an experimental background in glycobiology or neuroscience. The postdoctoral fellow will be responsible for their own research project investigating a specific human genetic disease of dysfunctional glycosylation (i.e., CDG). Work will largely focus on molecular investigations in tissues and cells derived from mice and affected human patients. Transformative discoveries in basic and translational glycobiology are anticipated.

Job Responsibilities
1. Conduct independent scholarly research in collaboration with PI and develop new methods and protocols
2. Participate in project planning, recording and analysis of data
3. Maintain appropriate lab notebook
4. Acquire technical, lab management and grant writing skills
5. Submit findings for publication in peer-review journals
6. Participate in seminars, lectures, poster sessions and presentation at national meetings
7. Supervise junior lab members

Postdoc to study genetic modifiers of CDGs
University of Utah, Department of Human Genetics
The Chow Lab in the Department of Human Genetics at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City is recruiting a postdoctoral research associate interested in modifiers of rare diseases. We have a number of projects focused on identifying modifiers of rare disease, with special focus on developing those targets as personalized therapies. We work on a number of different childhood rare diseases including, NGLY1 deficiency, PIGA deficiency, and DPAGT1 deficiency. There will be opportunities to work on modifier screens, drug repurposing, & functional analyses in cells & flies. Our projects range from full computational to full wet lab to a mixture of both. This is a great opportunity for a postdoc to lead and drive several of these projects. There will also be opportunities to develop independent projects aligning with the broad goals of the Chow Lab. All of our postdocs have been successful in obtaining independent funding. We collaborate with patient advocacy groups and industry.

We also work closely with clinicians, meet regularly with our rare disease clinic and new NICU sequencing initiative, and model newly discovered rare diseases. We encourage postdocs to engage with any or all of these opportunities to enrich their training. Candidates with a strong desire to gain a clinical view of precision medicine while still working at the bench can apply for a number of training grants that provide clinical experience, including our NHGRI Genomic Medicine Training Grant.

We are especially keen on recruiting scientists from underrepresented backgrounds. We have a vibrant SACNAS community and we continue to build new support systems for all trainees.
