Postdoctoral Research Associate in Glycosaminoglycan Biology
University of Georgia The Weiss Lab at the University of Georgia's Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (https://ccrc.uga.edu/) is seeking a creative and enthusiastic postdoctoral fellow to drive research projects supported by a new NIGMS/NIH R35 award focused on investigating the regulation of glycosaminoglycan biosynthesis in human health and disease. These are multidisciplinary projects with valuable training opportunities in glycobiology, functional genomics, chemical biology, and drug discovery. The Weiss Laboratory utilizes a combination of biochemistry, cell biology and genomics to understand the structure, assembly and function of sulfated glycosaminoglycans found on proteoglycans. We utilize a number of techniques that offer high potential for training, including genome-wide CRISPR screening approaches, mammalian cell engineering, flow cytometry, and isolation and characterization of glycans. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to design and evaluate experiments, develop new ideas and promote current research, and prepare and publish scientific manuscripts in collaboration with the Principal Investigator. The postdoctoral fellow may be responsible for the operation of scientific equipment and for teaching techniques to others, including training of students and supervision of research staff.
MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, or a related discipline. Preference will be given to candidates who have hands-on experience with CRISPR technologies, genomics, and/or protein-protein interaction techniques to study protein function. Excellent scientific writing ability and strong oral communication skills are required, as is the ability to work effectively with colleagues.
Interested applicants should send their CV and a list of 2-3 references to Dr. Ryan Weiss at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information is available at our lab website (https://weisslaboratory.com/). Come join us!
Sr. / Associate Principal Scientist/ Carbohydrate chemist

Ability to support synthesis ligands using click chemistry using HTS glycan array platform.
Immediate opening for research associate at the interface of glycobiology and immunology!
Cincinnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center Seeking qualified postdoctoral applicants to work on the cutting edge of exciting developments in host defense and fetal tolerance. Our lab recently uncovered that antibodies are activated during pregnancy to defend against intracellular infections. Maternal enzymes remodel sialic acid to permit binding to Siglecs on neonatal immune cells. In addition, we are exploring how sialic acid modifications “shield” the developing fetus from the maternal immune system.
Cincinnati children’s is an equal opportunity employer. Cincinnati Children’s is currently the #1 ranked children’s hospital in the country, in large part to the robust research programs directed at child health. We offer competitive salaries and great benefits in an affordable Midwest city. The laboratory collaborates closely with investigators throughout the institution, Including the perinatal institute, division of neonatology, division of infectious diseases, and Center for Inflammation and Tolerance. This is a unique place to perform research on topics of great importance to maternal and child health, with implications for global health research as well.
Hollenhorst Lab Postdoc
Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women's Hospital The Hollenhorst laboratory studies glycoproteins that play critical roles in hemostasis and thrombosis. Platelets and coagulation factors are heavily coated in glycans which are essential for healthy function of the hemostatic system. We are interested in understanding how these glycans regulate the structure and function of hemostatic glycoproteins, and modulate the anti-platelet immune response. We are recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to perform cutting-edge research using the tools of chemical biology to dissect platelet and coagulation factor glycobiology. Our ultimate goal is to improve the lives of patients with bleeding and thrombotic disorders.
Applications Development Scientist, Glycobiology Solutions
