Pathogen-Host Cell BiologyPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2018-Jul-06
Postdoctoral fellowships are available within the Pathogen-Host Cell Biology Section of Laboratory of Bacteriology, located at the Rocky Mountain Laboratories (RML) in Hamilton, Montana. The RML is a component of the Division of Intramural Research, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health (NIH). The Pathogen-Host Cell Biology studies neutrophil biology and bacterial pathogenesis, with an emphasis on evasion of innate immunity by bacterial pathogens (https://www.niaid.nih.gov/research/frank-r-deleo-phd). Current research projects in this area focus on carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus. The postdoctoral fellows will develop and apply new and existing techniques such as cell imaging, molecular biology, genomics, protein biochemistry, and animal modeling to study bacteria-host cell interactions. Highly motivated candidates are encouraged to apply. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. within the past five (5) years from the date of appointment to be eligible for this position.
RML has state-of-the-art facilities for animal modeling, genomics, proteomics, and biological imaging. Investigators at RML work on a variety of human pathogens including those requiring high containment laboratories. The laboratory is located in the Bitterroot Valley of western Montana, with easy access to some of the finest outdoor recreational opportunities in North America. Trainees will receive a stipend commensurate with experience and health insurance benefits are provided.Qualifications:
Preference will be given to those candidates with expertise in microbiology, immunology, molecular biology, or bacterial genetics. Strong interpersonal and organizational skills as well as excellent written and oral communication skills in English are preferred.
