Post-Doctoral Fellow, Research Technician, and Physician/Scientist Positions Available - The Pathogenesis and Treatment of Microbial Sepsis
Research positions are open at the University of California, Santa Barbara for post-doctoral fellows, research technicians, and physician-scientists interested in studies of infectious disease and the complications of sepsis. The positions are with the laboratories of Drs. Jamey Marth and Michael Mahan, and are focused upon how protein glycosylation and glycoprotein remodeling control the aging and turnover of secreted proteins in modulating the coagulopathy and inflammation of microbial sepsis. Ideal candidates would have experience in infectious disease research, inflammatory biology, protein biochemistry, and proteomics. Training will be provided as necessary to include glycan linkage analyses. The project will include both mouse models and human patients involving collaborations between scientists and clinicians. Interested candidates should send their CV and names of three personal references by email or regular mail to: Katelyn Jerlinga, 9625 MCDB, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA 93106-9625. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Postdoctoral Position Leukemia Research at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA
An NIH-supported postdoctoral position will be available to study the role of the leukemia microenvironment, carbohydrate modifications and carbohydrate binding proteins in leukemia cell survival and the development of drug resistance. We are currently studying how Galectins contribute to the communication between stromal cells, leukemia cells and the role of this in promoting drug resistance -see PMID 25869099 and 23760399.
We are looking for: Experience working with mice, hematopoietic cell tissue culture, retroviral or lentiviral transduction and FACS are required. Expertise in glycobiology or biochemistry is an advantage. Candidates who are interested in following an academic career path, are self-motivated and enjoy the complexity of biological systems are especially encouraged to apply.
How to apply: Please include your current CV, a 1-page cover letter describing your current position, your reasons for applying and contact details of three recent referees as a single PDF.
The lab: Our lab is in the Division of Hematology/Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplant at Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). CHLA is academically affiliated with the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California and is strongly committed to basic, translational and clinical research. The Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases at CHLA is the largest pediatric hematology-oncology program in the United States. We have ongoing collaborations in the area of glycobiology with scientists at the Institute for Glycomics, Griffith University.
