Postdoctoral 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 investigate host-pathogen interactions (collaboration with Dr. Ming Tan, Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, UC Irvine), with focus on the effects of this intracellular pathogen on the centrosome, on primary and motile cilia, on the cell cycle and on intracellular trafficking. Experience in cellular microbiology, cell biology or microscopy would be advantageous.

About University of California Irvine, Department of Developmental and Cell Biology
Our research programs focus on the genetic control of cell growth, differentiation and morphogenesis that gives rise to tissues and organs of animals. This field of biology has undergone significant transformation recently, driven by the intellectual challenges associated with the avalanche of genomic and proteomic data on various organisms. Our department has successfully incorporated diverse di...sciplines such as computational biology, bioengineering and the physical sciences and developed a highly integrative approach for the study of developmental and cell biology. Through such programs, we expect to maintain excellence in research and educate students for the future.
