Job Bulletin Board
The San Diego Glycobiology Symposium (SDGS) provides an environment where young investigators can network with other researchers,  exchange ideas and discuss potential career training opportunities.  There will be a poster board at the SDGS  in the meeting room for you to advertise current Scientist, Postdoctoral, Graduate or Undergraduate student job opportunities in your lab. If you have a job announcement you’d like to advertise, please print it out and bring it with you to post on the board during the symposium. Alternatively, you can send your job announcement to by Monday, March 16th and we will print it out and post it for you on the board.
