Postdoctoral Position

Developmental glycobiology of Drosophila.
Texas A&M University, College Station, TX.

Project Description: The project is focused on characterization of the 
role of glycosylation in neural and muscle development. The research is 
based on a cross-disciplinary strategy using advanced approaches of 
molecular genetics, bioinformatics, biochemistry, and cell biology.
Ample opportunities for professional growth and building a strong 
research career in the cutting-edge field of modern biology!

Lab Description: Young and growing laboratory with the research 
interests in the field of Developmental Biology, Genetics and 
Glycobiology. Several novel genes involved in developmentally-regulated 
glycosylation are currently in the focus of our investigation at 
molecular, cellular, and organismal levels. We are using the Drosophila 
model system, known for its powerful genetics, in combination with 
advanced biochemical and cell biological approaches.

Place: With the student population of more than 45,000, Texas A&M is one 
of the biggest and well-funded Universities in America; TAMU is famous 
for its Engineering and Life Sciences research all over the world. 
College Station is a nice and safe university town with low cost of 
living located in the vicinity of Houston, TX.

Qualifications: Motivated researchers with experience in Molecular 
Biology and/or Biochemistry and Glycobiology and/or Drosophila Genetics 
are sought.

Application Requirements: Names and email addresses of at least 2 
references.
