Post-Doctoral Position in Human Immunology and Glycobiology at the Columbia Center for Translational Immunology Columbia University Medical Center New York, NYC
Contact:
Emmanuel Zorn, Ph.D.: ez2184@cumc.columbia.edu

Description:

A post-doctoral position is open in the laboratory of Dr. Emmanuel Zorn at Columbia University Medical Center in New York, to study the function of the cell coat or glycocalyx in the recognition of cells and tissues by elements of the immune system. The research will particularly investigate how modifications of the glycocalyx can modulate apoptotic cell clearance and influence inflammatory reactions. The study will also examine how these mechanisms can contribute to solid organ graft rejection. For this position, we are seeking a junior, independent, creative and hard-working individual with specific lab experience in glycobiology, cell membrane biology and relevant techniques. Motivated candidates should have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. and documented research experience in the required field.

To apply, send curriculum vitae, cover letter including a description of past research accomplishments as well as contact information for three references to Emmanuel Zorn, Ph.D.: ez2184@cumc.columbia.edu

Post-doctoral position I in the Laboratory of Immunochemistry and Glycobiology, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. (Paracoccicioides brasiliensis)
Contact: Dr. Maria Cristina Roque Barreira (mcrbarre@fmrp.usp.br)

Description:
A post-doctoral position is open in the Laboratory of Immunochemistry and Glycobiology, School of Medicine of Ribeirao Preto, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. We are seeking a highly motivated young PhD with knowledge in the field of immunology, cell biology, and glycobiology, as well as competence in experimental infection models, cell culture, cell cytometry, basic microscopy technique and protein purification technologies. The position will be available in April 2014.

The Laboratory of Glycobiology and Immunochemistry investigates the role of carbohydrate recognition in the innate immunity. Specifically, the project focuses the effects of a lectin of a pathogenic dimorphic fungus, which recognizes N-acetyl-glucosamine and has chitinase activity. We aim to localize paracoccin in hyphal, transition and yeast forms of Paracoccicioides brasiliensis, establishing correlation with its effect on cell wall biogenesis and fungal growth. In addition, we aim to identify possible paracoccin glycoligands in mammals' cells that may be related with the immunomodulatory property, and to evaluate the in vivo immunomodulatory effect of paracoccin and its potential to confer protection against experimental paracoccidioidomycosis.
If interested, please email Dr. Maria Cristina Roque Barreira (mcrbarre@fmrp.usp.br). Send CV and motivation letter.

Closing Date: March 15, 2014.
