Postdoctoral Associate/PhD student positions

Three to four Postdoctoral and/or PhD candidate positions in microbiology and structural biology are immediately available at the Li lab in the Wadsworth Center, New York State Department of Health, Albany NY ( ). The Li lab focuses on both basic biology and development of therapeutics against human pathogens such as Dengue virus, Zika virus, Cryptococcus fungi, and mycobacteria, as well as cancers. Current projects include development of antivirals and antifungals. Both small molecule inhibitors and antibodies are pursued to target essential viral and fungal genes. Additional projects include structural and functional studies of essential proteins and/or complexes of viruses and microbes, with an emphasis of membrane proteins/complexes as potential drug targets. The candidates will perform experiments related to basic biology and therapeutic development, including, but not limited to, molecular genetics, cell culture, antibody development, microbiology, cryo-EM, and membrane protein preparation, characterization, and/or structure determination. The positions will be funded for 1-3 years or longer if needed, and come with full benefits. Highly motivated and creative individuals with rich experience in cryo EM, membrane protein characterization, Cryptococcus fungi and mycobacteria are particularly encouraged to apply.
