Postdoctoral Scholar in Malaria Research

A postdoctoral position is available immediately for a highly motivated individual to study host-pathogen interactions in malaria in the Egan Lab at Stanford University School of Medicine.   The candidate will work on funded projects focused on defining and characterizing host and parasite factors important for the biology and pathogenesis of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum in red blood cells.  We use a variety of approaches spanning molecular parasitology, stem cell biology, genetics, biochemistry, cell biology and population genetics (Science 348, 711-714 (2015)).

The successful candidate is expected to have strong critical thinking and communication skills, be well organized, and display initiative and enthusiasm.  Candidates should have a doctoral degree and a strong background in molecular genetics, cell biology and/or parasitology.  Experience with large datasets is desirable but not required. Women and members of underrepresented minority groups are encouraged to apply.  

Stanford University offers a world-class academic environment and a vibrant and large community of postdoctoral fellows (http://postdocs.stanford.edu/).  We are located in Palo Alto, California, which has a beautiful mild climate year-round and abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation and cultural experiences, while being a within a short drive to San Francisco.
