Four vacant postdoc positions at the Copenhagen Center for Glycomics

We are offering 4 postdoc positions at the Copenhagen Center for Glycomics (CCG) with the Miller R. and Schjoldager Groups, commencing from 15 November 2023 – 1 April 2024 or after agreement.

CCG strives to be a leader in glycosciences in pioneering the transformation of the field towards wider integration into mainstream cell biology by developing experimental strategies, informatics approaches, and sustainable resources amenable not only to experts. We aim to facilitate the discovery of diseases caused by altered glycosylation, develop new diagnostic and therapeutic tools, and identify new ways to design and produce improved glycoprotein drugs.

2 positions are available in the Miller R. Group:
Our objective is to use genetic engineering strategies in a cell's glycosaminoglycan pathway to synthesize a heparin-based anticoagulant with improved properties as a substitute for the current animal-derived heparin employed in clinical settings. Additionally, we are focusing on developing other glycosaminoglycan therapeutics.

2 positions are available in the Schjoldager Group:
Driving research projects related to the discovery and dissection of biological functions of protein glycosylation with a focus on the identification of specific molecular functions of glycoproteins and glycoconjugates that impact human physiology and common diseases and dispositions to disease.
