Postdoctoral Position in microbial glycobiology at Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis
 
The Beverley laboratory studies glycan synthesis in the trypanosomatid protozoan parasite Leishmania.

Our lab uses an interdisciplinary blend of genetic, molecular, biochemical, cell biological and immunological approaches to understand the key roles of glycans in parasite biology and infectivity.  

Ongoing projects include the global application of CRISPR/Cas9 technology to define the parasite glycome and its role(s) in parasite infectivity and host responses, and studies of an essential fucosyltransferase which unexpectedly acts within the parasite mitochondrion.  We are especially interested in the characterization and role of the mitochondrial glycan(s).
We are located in the Dept. of Molecular Microbiology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.  Our group and department are highly interactive and collaborative, and offer an outstanding academic environment for training and career development.

Candidates should have a strong record of accomplishment, background relevant to research in glycobiology/glycobiochemistry, and a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree.  Please send a CV and contact information for three references to Steve Beverley (stephen.beverley at wustl.edu).
