We are fascinated by the complexity and diversity of the glycome, and we are on a mission to showcase the fundamental roles glycans play in regulating mammalian biological functions in precise molecular detail. 

We are recruiting at all levels- postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, interns, and technicians are welcome to apply! 


Trainees can expect to build an interdisciplinary skill set that encompasses techniques in chemical synthesis, molecular biology, and cell biology, while being surrounded by the rich intellectual environment at Scripps Research.


We want to help cultivate your scientific interests in glycans and glycoscience. Interested applicants should email their CVs to miahuang"at"

along with a statement of why you are interested in our lab.
