PostDoc Position in Structural Glycobiology: Chemical Biology of Mammalian Lectin Receptors
The “Structural Glycobiology” group at the Max-Planck-Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam is looking for a motivated and ambitious candidate for a postdoc position in Biochemistry, Chemistry, or Chemical Biology.
What is expected?
- Confidence in spoken and written English is a requirement.
- A background in synthetic organic chemistry with a focus on chemical biology applications is a prerequisite.
- The candidate should be interested in medicinal chemistry and structural biology and willing to learn about glycobiology and immunology applications.
- Basic knowledge on nuclear magnetic resonance is helpful and the position will allow the candidate to expand his/her expertise into protein-ligand interactions applying this technique.
The “Structural Glycobiology” group is an independent research group, funded by the Emmy Noether Programme of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). The group is embedded in the Department of Biomolecular Systems led by Prof. Dr. Peter H. Seeberger. The department is a well-equipped research facility providing stimulating grounds for scientific progress in an international, multidisciplinary research environment. A comprehensive repertoire of instruments (NMR, SPR, FACS, FLPC, confocal microscopy, etc.) stands alongside with high-profile collaborators in a fruitful research spectrum covering synthetic organic chemistry, biochemistry, glycobiology, nanotechnology, immunology and biophysics.
The Max Planck Society is an equal opportunity employer: Handicapped individuals are strongly encouraged to apply, and so are women in areas in which they are underrepresented.
