Applications are invited for immediate openings for candidates to study the biochemistry and cell biology of a variety of human glycosylation (CDG) and de-glycosylation (NGLY1) disorders at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute.
This is a unique opportunity to blend fundamental Glycobiology with medical and translational opportunities. In addition, this training position also will be able to engage in strong interactions with families/patients, physicians, and NIH sponsored consortia for discovery and validation of entirely new metabolic disorders of N-glycosylation.
The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated ability to work and think independently. Additionally, a strong track record of first author publications and hands-on experience in areas such as mammalian cell metabolism, genetics, biochemistry, glycobiology, gene manipulation are required. Experience and facility in flow cytometry, fluorescence microscopy, proteomics, metabolomics are desirable. Fundamental knowledge of ER-Golgi interactions, ERAD, and functions of glycosylation will be advantageous. Ability to build collaborative relationships based on effective communication in fluent spoken and written English are essential.
