National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, Bethesda, MD and surrounding area

The Ten Hagen, Samara, and Tabak labs in the NIH Intramural Program are actively engaged in a broad range of interdisciplinary and collaborative efforts to determine the biological functions of O-glycans. Emphasis is placed on the conduct of rigorous high risk/high reward research. Current projects include identifying novel factors involved in secretion, understanding the molecular basis of rare diseases, characterizing O-glycosylation at the host:microbe interface, and mapping the human and mouse O-glycome.

Our labs are dedicated to building an inclusive, equitable, diverse, and family friendly community with a focus on mentoring and training in Drosophila genetics, glycobiology, mass spectrometry, mouse genetics, or structural biology. The NIH Intramural Research Program offers a uniquely collaborative environment spanning all biomedical disciplines. There is access to outstanding core facilities and the NIH Clinical Center, the largest hospital in the world devoted exclusively to research.


We are seeking a highly motivated candidate with a Ph.D. and less than 1 year of postdoctoral experience with a background in the biological sciences or in related disciplines. Prior experience in one or more of the following specialty areas - Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Genetics, Molecular Biology or Structural Biology- is preferred. Competitive salary and benefits are available and will be commensurate with experience.
