Postdoctoral Associate AD

The Barb lab is looking for a recently graduated or experienced postdoctoral researcher to study the function and modification of antibody-binding Fc gamma receptors. We will begin by characterizing Fc gamma receptors from primary human tissue. Athens is a great place to live, and this position is supported by a competitive salary with great benefits including health, dental, vision and retirement.
Please contact Dr. Barb with questions ( and apply at:
A person in this position will have two primary objectives: the first is to purify proteins from peripheral human blood and characterization using mass spectrometry. We will test the hypothesis that patients experiencing antibody-mediated autoimmune disorders express Fc gamma receptor forms that promote leukocyte activation. The second goal is to characterize recombinantly expressed receptors. Together, we will determine how cells in the human immune system modify antibody-binding receptors and define how these modifications change during disease.
This project is funded by the National Institutes of Health and is a collaborative arrangement between the University of Georgia, Columbia University and Emory University. Our laboratory has developed protocols to isolate proteins from primary human monocytes and natural killer cells. Our laboratory is a highly dynamic environment with ongoing studies on antibody structure, receptor binding and engineering as well as Fc gamma receptor composition, structure and function.
Relevant/Preferred Education, Experience, Licensure, Certification in Position      
A Ph.D. in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Cell Biology or a related field. A preferred candidate will have significant experience with protein or carbohydrate mass spectrometry. Experience with glycoproteomics, HCD or ETD is also valuable.
Knowledge, Skills, Abilities and/or Competencies     
Experience with quantitative chemistry or biochemistry. Experience with glycoproteomics mass spectrometry will be an asset. Have excellent sterile technique. Be proficient with primer design, various forms of PCR, DNA/RNA-purification, gel electrophoresis and sequencing. Will create, test and then teach complex written molecular biology or biochemical protocols. Will transform, overexpress and purify proteins from a host organisms. Excellent record keeping and organizational skills. Will prepare scientific manuscripts and oral presentations. Will work as a team-member and team-lead.
The University of Georgia (UGA), a land-grant and sea-grant university with statewide commitments and responsibilities is the state’s oldest, most comprehensive, and most diversified institution of higher education ( UGA is currently ranked among the top 20 public universities in U.S. News & World Report. The University’s main campus is located in Athens, approximately 65 miles northeast of Atlanta, with extended campuses in Atlanta, Griffin, Gwinnett, and Tifton. UGA was founded in 1785 by the Georgia General Assembly as the first state-chartered University in the country. UGA employs approximately 1,800 full-time instructional faculty and more than 7,600 full-time staff. The University’s enrollment exceeds 36,000 students including over 27,500 undergraduates and over 8,500 graduate and professional students. Academic programs reside in 17 schools and colleges, as well as a medical partnership with Augusta University housed on the UGA Health Sciences Campus in Athens.
