[ccp4bb] Post-doc opportunity.

Hello Fellow CCP4er’s,


I am posting this for a colleague. Please contact Dr. Breeanna Urbanowicz (breeanna@uga.edu) with any questions. Thank you.


The Urbanowicz Lab at the University of Georgia's Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (www.ccrc.uga.edu) is looking for a motivated postdoctoral researcher to carry out a research project in plant cell wall biology investigating structure/function of carbohydrate active enzymes. Successful applicants will join a multi-disciplinary team comprised of scientists from the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center and the New Materials Institute together to pursue research funded by the DOE Center for Bioenergy Innovation (https://cbi.ornl.gov) and the DOE Center for Plant and Microbial Carbohydrates. The position is available as early as March 1st, 2020 and comes with a comprehensive benefits package and a competitive salary.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in chemistry, biochemistry, plant biology or a related discipline. Preference will be given to candidates who have hands-on experience with heterologous _expression_ and purification of recombinant proteins. Strong communication skills and fluency in written and spoken English are essential as is the ability to work in a collaborative scientific environment.

Candidates should submit their applications as a single PDF document by email to Breeanna Urbanowicz (breeanna@uga.edu). The document must contain: (i) a cover letter describing their research interests, career goals and motivation for the position, (ii) a current CV, and (iii) the names and contact information for three individuals willing to provide professional letters of support.

For further information, please contact Dr. Breeanna Urbanowicz (breeanna@uga.edu) with questions related to these exact positions.

Dr. Breeanna Urbanowicz completed her PhD at Cornell University and is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Georgia. She is faculty member of UGA’s Complex Carbohydrate Research Center and New Materials Institute and is a project leader in the US-DOE Center for Bioenergy Innovation (CBI), the US-DOE Center of Plant and Microbial Carbohydrates, and the NSF-funded Center for Bioplastics and Biocomposites (CB2). Her core research is centered on the structure, biosynthesis and biological function of the plant cell wall, a cellular component that is integral to many facets of plant biology. The tools and approaches developed are paving the path forward toward deeper analysis of glycopolymer synthesis and deconstruction pathways used by plants and other organisms, and are now being applied towards the development of new bio-based plastics and coatings.
