Postdoctoral Scholar - Microbial Pathogenesis

Recruitment Period

Open August 15th, 2019 through Tuesday, Jun 30, 2020 at 11:59pm (Pacific Time)


Post-doctoral scholar positions (Ph.D.) funded by NIH are available immediately to study Chlamydia, the most commonly reported cause of infectious disease in the U.S. Ongoing projects are focused on (1) Developmental regulation: how this bacterium controls its temporal gene expression and conversion between two developmental forms, and; (2) Host-pathogen interactions (collaboration with Dr. Christine Sütterlin, Department of Developmental and Cell Biology, UC Irvine): how this intracellular pathogen alters the centrosome, cilia and cell cycle of its infected host cell.

Experience in transcriptional regulation, protein purification, cellular microbiology, cell biology or microscopy would be advantageous.
