Two Postdoctoral Associate positions at CCRC GlycoInformatics group


The University of Georgia’s Complex Carbohydrate Research Center’s GlycoInformatics group headed by Prof William York seeks for two Postdoctoral Associate for a new GlycoInformatics project funded by the NIH Common Fund. This project focuses on implementing a unified data resource that integrates glycomics, proteomics and genomics information and provides access to this integrated data via a Web Portal. These diverse data will be provided in the context of their key inter-relationships, and visualized using intuitive, consistent representations. In addition, a public glycan array data repository will be developed. This large international collaboration includes two major US institutions (The University of Georgia and George Washington University) and several other US, European, Japanese and Australian groups. Two positions are open for experienced Bioinformatics software developers to implement intuitive graphical user interfaces using HTML/CSS/JS and implementing a triplestore-based backend using Java/Spring to provide the stored information via Web services. The positions are available immediately, and the salary is dependent on experience.  
Requirements:
• A PhD in bioinformatics, biology or glycobiology required with specific experience in glycobiology preferred
• A minimum of two years of experience with the development of web applications or web databases
• Excellent verbal/written communication skills in fluent English
How to Apply:
Send a PDF with your CV and up to three recent reference contacts by email to Prof William York (will@ccrc.uga.edu).

Postdoctoral Research Opportunity in Tumor Protein Glycosylation at the FDA
 
A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Division of Biotechnology Products Research and Review III, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research of the Food and Drug Administration.  The Fellow will join a multi-disciplinary research program to understand the mechanisms underlying the aberrant expression of tumor-associated carbohydrate antigens in human carcinomas.  The project will focus on the role of tumor pathways in altered protein glycosylations.  The goals are to (1) investigate relationships between aberrant glycosylations and tumor pathways, and (2) delineate the roadmap from tumor pathways to the altered protein glycosylations.
 
A Ph.D. or M.D. degree and experience in biochemistry, tumor biology or glycobiology is required.  The experience on analyzing the glycan structures or glycoproteomics using Mass Spectrometery is an extra. An excellent record of oral and written English skills is also required. The position is a non-FTE through the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE).  The salary will be commensurate with experience.
The laboratory is located on the main campus of the Food and Drug Administration at White Oak, Silver Spring, MD.
To apply, email your CV, a brief description of your research interest clearly describing your knowledge, skills and abilities relevant to the opportunity, and the contact information for three references by March  1st, 2017 to:
