A NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Garcia Laboratory in the Department of Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Michigan (for more information, please see: https://pharmacy.umich.edu/garcia-lab). The Garcia lab is developing novel antibiotics targeting drug resistant M. tuberculosis RNA polymerase (MTB RNAP) and VirF, a virulence-regulating transcription factor in the enteric pathogen Shigella flexneri. We are using both structure-based and high-throughput screening approaches in a collaborative effort with medicinal chemists, structural biologists and microbiologists.

Successful candidates will have a proven track record of publishing in high impact journals, experience in biochemistry/enzymology, medicinal chemistry or chemical biology, excellent communication skills and can successfully work as a member of a team.
