University of California, Irvine School of Medicine Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics Postdoctoral Positions - Microbial Pathogenesis 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; 2) Host-pathogen interactions (collaboration with Dr. Christine Sutterlin, Dept. 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. APPLICATION PROCEDURE: https://recruit.ap.uci.edu/apply/JPF04036. Please include your CV and a cover letter that includes a synopsis of previous research experience, specific interests in the ongoing work and contact information for three references.
