This is a grant funded position and is not eligible for severance pay.
Members of the department are actively engaged in research on fundamental and medically related problems in microbiology and molecular genetics. They include the genetics and biochemistry of bacterial and fungal pathogens and their interaction with host cells, the mode of action of antibiotics and drug resistance, the intracellular organization of bacteria, mechanisms of transcriptional regulation, mechanisms of virus entry, gene expression, replication and assembly.
Principal investigator seeks a senior scientist who is intimately familiar with Acinetobacter baumannii, and has demonstrated expertise in analyzing antibiotic resistance and able to write code in Python. The senior scientist should have at least 3 years postdoctoral experience, be trained in bacterial genetics and demonstrated ability to do genome editing and design of gene banks. The senior investigator will perform experiments on antibiotic resistance, perform bioinformatics using publicly available databases and lab generated large datasets. Individual will train students, postdoctoral fellows and research assistance to perform bioinformatic analysis and will mentor graduate students.
