Responsibilities/Job Description

You will study the interactions of glycan-binding domains from previous and current human pathogens. We have established a model system of human cells with the evolutionarily ancient human glycome (from approximately 2 million years ago) and you will use this system to investigate the evolution of disease susceptibility and the role of glycans in this process, which could shed light on combating current pathogens. Experimental techniques, among others, include molecular cloning, binding assays, and mammalian cell culture.
