Postdoctoral Research Associate: De Novo Carbohydrate Synthesis for Medicinal Chemistry. One postdoctoral position in carbohydrate synthesis for medicinal chemistry is open in the O’Doherty Laboratory at Northeastern University. The ideal candidate is expected to be able to contribute to the group’s ongoing efforts aimed at the use of asymmetric synthesis of carbohydrates (aka, De Novo Carbohydrate Synthesis) for the Stereochemical Structure Activity Relationship (S-SAR) studies of biologically relevant carbohydrate containing natural products. Specifically, the candidate will be required to be able to de novo design and synthesize novel analogues of carbohydrate containing molecules with desired biological properties. The candidate will be expected to independently analyze, interpret, and communicate research results.
