Postdoctoral Research Associate

The Rosenberg Lab at the University of California, San Francisco is seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate with a background in microbiology to undertake research to develop new live-cell tracers to track infections in humans.  The focus of the research is on the development of several radiochemicals that have promise for rapid translation into clinical practice (see for example https://doi: 10.1038/s41598-017-08415-x).  Such tracers will also be excellent tools to study the metabolic states of living bacteria in model infections.  We have developed cutting edge techniques to manipulate pathogens (https://doi.org/10.1038/s41564-018-0327-z), which we plan to deploy in our efforts. 

Applicants should hold a PhD or MD, or be near completion of their degree, in a relevant subject area. The applicant should have relevant research experience in microbiology and molecular genetics and have a proven research record using bacterial genetic manipulations and strong skills in molecular biology. The applicant should also be highly motivated with exceptional communications skills and the ability to work with a dynamic team.  Preferred skills would be prior experience with animal models of infection and experience with the tools of chemical biology.

This full-time post is fully funded by the NIH and DARPA.
