Human Microbiome (Bacterial, Fungal, Viral Genetics and Genomics)Posted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Jan-21
Our laboratory utilizes experimental and computational biology to explore human-associated microbiome (bacteria, fungi, virus) that contribute to health and disease. We generate shotgun metagenomics sequence from human clinical studies and analyze these large datasets with bioinformatics tools to generate hypotheses about microbial colonization or infection. Models are tested in vitro and in animal models. We have two areas of focus, the skin microbiome and antimicrobial resistance. See papers from the laboratory including Tirosh, Nature Medicine 2018; Johnson, New England Journal of Medicine 2018; Byrd, Science Translational Medicine 2017; Oh, Cell 2016.
Postdoctoral fellows are fully-integrated into basic-translational research with a range of collaborators in infectious disease, clinical microbiology, hospital epidemiology and dermatology. NHGRI has excellent training opportunities to interact with other laboratories and core facilities, including NIH sequencing center, bioinformatics, mouse transgenesis. As well, we are actively engaged in natural history patient studies at the research-based NIH Clinical Center.Qualifications:
Seeking applicant with interest in microbial genomics, models of infection, bacterial genetics, computational biology or bioinformatics. Background in genetic or genomic analysis, microbiology or statistics useful.
Motivated candidates who wish to join a group of enthusiastic scientists are requested to send by mail or e-mail CV, a brief statement of research interests and the names of three references to
