Postdoctoral Research Scientist position at GlycoBac, LLC
Location:
GlycoBac was founded in 2011 and is intellectually and physically linked to Dr. Jarvis’ adjacent academic lab spaces at the University of Wyoming. Both labs focus on various aspects of glycobiology and glycoengineering in the baculovirus-insect cell system. We use various approaches that include genome editing with CRISPR-Cas9 vectors specifically created for this system. In addition to contributing to core efforts to create and characterize new glycoengineered baculovirus-insect cell systems, the successful candidates will use those emerging tools to pursue basic research designed to enhance production of vaccines, therapeutic antibodies, and other glycoproteins for direct biomedical applications.

Harvard Career Development Program in Translational Glycobiology (ProTG): Bridging Glycoscience and Clinical Medicine
Location:
There are four main macromolecules of nature: the proteins, the lipids, the nucleic acids, and the glycans (carbohydrates). Though many people recognize that glycans play key roles in nutrition and in various diseases (e.g., diabetes), few people appreciate that glycans program a wide variety of biologic processes impacting both health and disease. There is a pressing need to expand our knowledge into how glycans affect human well-being, but there are very few biomedical scientists that possess the needed education and skills for performing research into how glycans control human biology. The key to bridging this translational chasm is to support the development of scientists with requisite interdisciplinary knowledge and experience by providing training in glycosciences concomitantly with education in human biology, altogether framed by an appreciation of human diseases and clinical urgency.
