Job Description:

A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Christopher Taron in analytical glycobiology. The proposed work aims to study newly discovered enzymes that generate glycopeptides or that act upon chemical modifications of glycans (e.g., sulfation). A primary focus will be on understanding the specificities and biochemical properties of new enzymes discovered from environmental screening. Additional work will apply interesting specificities to analytical workflows (e.g., glycomics, glycoproteomics, or MALDI imaging) to improve the analysis of glycans/glycoproteins in the context of complex biological samples. The research will be done in collaboration with our high-throughput enzyme discovery team and our protein mass spectrometry team.The ideal candidate will:

  • Have research experience in glycobiology, preferably working with free-glycans and/or glycopeptides
  • Have hands-on experience in molecular biology, protein expression and biochemical characterization of proteins
  • Be familiar with current glycomics and glycoproteomics techniques
  • Have excellent interpersonal skills and ability to work as part of a large multidisciplinary team
  • Be able to lead a basic research project that spans multiple technical disciplinesQualifications:
    • A doctorate in analytical chemistry, biochemistry, or related field
