We seek to develop and apply chemical approaches to link carbohydrates to functional groups in the context of natural macromolecules.
Your profile
The candidate should have strong experience in carbohydrate chemistry. Background in molecular and cell biology is of advantage but nor prerequisite. The candidate should be able to work independently but also to supervise students and participate to teaching activities. Teamwork and communication skills in English (spoken and written) are of highest importance.
