Postdoctoral positions in Peptide/Protein Chemistry, Enzymology, Molecular Biology, and/or Glycobiology
University of Maryland School of Medicine
Postdoctoral positions are available to work on an interdisciplinary research program at University of Maryland School of Medicine. The candidates will participate in at least one of the following research projects: 1) development of chemoenzymatic methods for glycoprotein synthesis; 2) glycosylation engineering of monoclonal antibodies and other therapeutic proteins; 3) design, synthesis, and evaluation of glycopeptide-based HIV vaccines. We are particularly interested in candidates with strong background in peptide/protein chemistry, enzymology, molecular biology, oligosaccharide chemistry, and/or glycobiology. Knowledge in vaccine design and immunization is a plus.
For considerations, please email your CV, list of publications, and names of three references to Dr. Lai-Xi Wang, Institute of Human Virology, University of Maryland School of Medicine, 725 West Lombard Street, Baltimore, MD 21201.
