CENTER FOR MICROBIOME AND HUMAN HEALTH

Microbial Culturing and Engineering Core Director

Our Institution is building a new Center focused on the microbiome, its involvement in human health, and its potential as a target for therapeutic interventions. We are seeking a highly qualified new or experienced investigator who is an expert in microbial culturing to establish a new Core in our Center. The applicant should have hands on experience in the field of microbiome-related research and be familiar with a wide array of methods for microbial culturing and strain manipulation under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions.

The successful candidate will have a broad expertise in strain engineering/recombineering and a respected publication record in the field. Importantly the candidate must have the ability to stay abreast with cutting-edge technology and demonstrate good oral and written English communication, proficiencies that are central to providing customer service and technical oversight. The director will collaborate with institutional researchers interested in areas related to microbiology, including microbe-microbe interactions, microbe-host interactions, microbial enzymology and biochemistry, bacteriophage therapy and gnotobiotics. The core director is expected to meet with basic, translational and clinical investigators and help optimally plan experiments focused on microbiomerelated research. The core director will also organize efforts to provide investigators with conventional or genetically-modified bacterial strains for functional studies. Highly promising early career investigators with microbiome-related research interests are encouraged to apply. Alternatively, established investigators that have an established research program in one of these fields and the ability to direct and instruct team members to carry out core functions will also be favorably considered. Faculty appointments will be made at the appropriate level (Staff Scientist, Assistant, Associate, or Full Staff) based upon candidate credentials. The successful candidate will join a highly collaborative environment with outstanding opportunities for interactions with basic and translational investigators, as well as with clinicians from multiple specialties. Outstanding facilities, generous core start-up funds, and ongoing core operational support will be provided.

The Lerner Research Institute, with nearly 200 independent investigators in 10 departments and an annual budget of >$240 million, has a commitment to excellence in basic, translational and clinical research, with an emphasis on interactive, collaborative research. Faculty are members of the Molecular Medicine Graduate Training Program at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and may join other Programs, providing access to excellent Ph.D. students enrolled in welldeveloped training programs.

Candidates should submit a complete curriculum vitae and brief statement of research interests by email to Ms. Kelsey Shirey: shireyk@ccf.org.
