Postdoctoral Fellow in Microbial Genomics
Department of Health and Human Services
National Institutes of Health
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) conducts and supports a global program of research to better understand, treat, and ultimately prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases. The Laboratory of Clinical Immunology and Microbiology (LCIM) within the NIAID Division of Intramural Research (DIR) is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral fellow position within the newly created Bacterial Pathogenesis and Antimicrobial Resistance Unit. This position will offer a unique opportunity to work at the intersection of clinical infectious disease, pathogen genomics, and computational biology. We use a combination of genomics and proteomics to study bacterial pathogens, with a focus on intra-host bacterial evolution in the context of infection in patients with defined immunodeficiency syndromes and on mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance. Access to state-of-the-art sequencing, mass spectrometry, and computational resources is available.
To apply, send curriculum vitae, bibliography, three references who may be contacted for letters, and a short statement about your skill set and clinical research interests (no more than two pages) to Dr. John Dekker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
