We are seeking a creative scientist with a background in microbiology and immunology to study the role of the microbiome in Lyme disease. Infection with B. burgdorferi causes changes in the microbiome and affects immunity. The goal of the project is to understand the link between the pathogen, changes in the microbiome, and symptoms of the disease. The successful candidate will join a team of talented researchers working on various aspects of Lyme disease, such as drug discovery and study of B. burgdorferi persisters. The project is multidisciplinary and involves collaborators from both local (Harvard, Tufts) and national Institutions. A strong record of publications in microbiology/immunology is an essential requirement. The appointment will be for a minimum of 2 years with possible extension, starting preferably in March.  

            The campus is in a pleasant location in downtown Boston, near the art Museum and the Symphony. Competitive salary and benefits. Please e-mail a CV and names of 3 references to Dr. Kim Lewis, (Department of Biology, Northeastern University, 360 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA).
