The research program of the carbohydrate section of the Department of
Bio-Organic Chemistry, Bijvoet Center for Biomolecular Research at
Utrecht University, The Netherlands (Prof. Dr. J.F.G. Vliegenthart,
Prof. Dr. J.P Kamerling), is focused on primary/spatial structure
analysis of glycoproteins, glycan receptors, glycoprotein glycans and
polysaccharides, biosynthesis of oligosaccharide sequences, and organic
synthesis of oligosaccharides.

The Board of the department likes to announce the following vacancie,
which is immediately available:

A PhD student position (4 years) for a topic on the structural and
functional involvement of oligomannose-type glycoprotein N-glycans in
the interaction between neural recognition molecules. In this research
the candidate will study the three-dimensional structure of complexes of
the oligomannose-type glycans with the NCAM 1 Ig4 and of the
isolated Ig4, using advanced NMR techniques and theoretical approaches.
The project may include isotope labeling of the proteins. At the end of
the term a thesis leading to a doctorate at Utrecht University has to be
Only nationals of a European country are invited to reflect. Experience
with either handling proteins, NMR spectroscopy or conformational
analysis is required.

If you are interested and have the right academic qualification for
starting in a PhD student position in the Netherlands, please send your
letter and a CV to:
