Position available in CAZy team

addition : 3 July 2018.

The Glycogenomics team at AFMB lab (Luminy campus - Marseille) has been classifying carbohydrate-active enzymes in the CAZy database (http://www.cazy.org) for 20 years . Our research requires the implementation of scripts for the analysis and visualization of data (web and/or other programming languages). Our collaborations are numerous and make the success of the CAZy database. We wish to recruit a bioinformatician engineer, for an initial contract of 4 months, renewable once, whose mission will be to update/modernize existing tools (coded in JAVA) in another programming language (free, to discuss). Knowledge in PERL/MySQL or some experience in the analysis of protein sequences/domains may be an advantage to participate to other missions of the team.

PhD position available (fully funded)

addition : 19 June 2018.

PhD position available in the Carbohydrate Biochemical Engineering section of the Aquatic Biotechnology and Biochemical Engineering research group, Engineering and Technology institute Groningen, University of Groningen, The Netherlands.
The candidate should have a biochemical background with affinity towards analytical chemistry to mine PULs from marine microorganism to characterize catalytic enzymes and uncover the structures of seaweed polysaccharides leading to functionalizing products of such enzymatic degradation.

Willing to join the CAZy team ?

addition : 5 December 2017.

Did you know that CNRS recruits researchers on permanent positions (http://www.dgdr.cnrs.fr/drhchercheurs/concoursch/default-en.htm)? If you have a good CV, why not join the competition and choose to work in the Glycogenomics team that has developped and maintains the CAZy database? Carbohydrate-active enzymes are important everywhere (gut microbiota, soil and marine environments), they have applications in biotechnology and health. Pretty cool to develop a research subject !
