Centre for Glycoprotein Science, NUI Galway, Ireland
The National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway) and Dublin City
University (DCU) are creating a Centre for BioAnalytical Sciences in
collaboration with Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (BMS). Research Chairs
are being established at the host universities in Glycoprotein Science
(NUI Galway) and BioAnalytical Sciences (DCU). The initial phase of the
initiative has commenced with the recruitment of over 30 personnel and
significant funding committed by the industry partner. Candidates for
the chairs must satisfy the conditions for support as an SFI Research
Professor (www.sfi.ie <http://www.sfi.ie/> ).
Chair in Glycoprotein Science
National University of Ireland, Galway
Applications are invited from internationally recognized scientists for
a new Chair in Glycoprotein Science within the Faculty of Science at the
National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway). The person
appointed will be expected to play a leading role in the establishment
of a new Centre for Bioanalytical Sciences, a joint venture between NUI
Galway, Dublin City University, and Bristol Meyers Squibb Company.
He/She will actively interact with research teams based in the National
Centre for Biomedical Engineering Science (www.ncbes.ie), the
Regenerative Medicine Institute (www.remedi.ie), academic departments,
including Chemistry, Biochemistry, Microbiology, and Pharmacology, and
clinical researchers at University College Hospital, Galway, to develop
a world-class reputation for NUI Galway in Glycoprotein research. The
Chair is one of several that have been established by the University as
part of a strategic initiative to rapidly grow new capabilities around
world-leaders in targeted areas.
The particular focus for this position is on structure/function analysis
of glycoproteins of biopharmaceutical interest, and the identification
of glycosylation profiles for optimal biological activity and efficacy.
The successful candidate will have an internationally recognised
research profile in glycoprotein science, and will be appointable at
Professorial level. Since this position will be based in the Department
of Chemistry, he/she will have an expertise in biological chemistry and
will be expected to contribute to the Department's programmes at
undergraduate and postgraduate level in line with the strong research
and teaching ethos of the Science Faculty.
Applicants with a strong background in glycoprotein chemistry, including
structure/function analysis of glycoproteins, and characterisation of
recombinant glycoprotein function and in vivo efficacy, applied to the
analysis of macro-biomolecules of pharmaceutical interest, are
particularly encouraged to apply.
Candidates will be evaluated on the basis of their proven excellence in
research and education, their international impact, high-level
interactions with the biopharma industry and their ability to attract
significant external funding. Applications will be reviewed by an
International Search Committee. An attractive salary, commensurate with
experience, will be offered for this post.
Applicants are encouraged to contact Professor Terry Smith, Director of
the NCBES (Tel. +353 91 492022; terry.smith at nuigalway.ie) or Professor
Angela Savage, Chemistry Department, (Tel. +353 91 750447;
angela.savage at nuigalway.ie) for informal discussions before submitting
Closing date for receipt of applications for the above position: 17.00,
Friday 30th September 2005.

Please note that applications for this position by email or fax will be
Glycoprotein Structure Determination (3 positions)
Starting date: September 1st 2005
The ideal candidates will hold a PhD and have extensive experience of
the structure determination of glycoproteins containing both N- and
O-linked sialylated oligosaccharides using modern analytical techniques
including liquid chromatography, capillary electrophoresis, mass
spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy. Experience in the use of lectins
would be an advantage.
Applicants should email their cv to Prof. Angela Savage at
angela.savage at nuigalway.ie (for the postdoctoral positions only)
