Postdoctoral Position in Molecular Genetics of Mycobacterial Antibiotic Resistance

A position for a Post Doctoral Fellow is available at the Wadsworth Center, New York State Department of Health to conduct research on the molecular mechanisms and regulation of drug resistance in mycobacteria. The position involves use of high throughput genomics to identify genes and regulatory pathways that contribute to intrinsic drug resistance in mycobacteria, design and creation of gene knockouts, and deciphering mechanisms of resistance.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will be responsible for establishing experimental approaches, be able to analyze and interpret data produced, handle multiple projects, supervise the work of students and technicians and synthesize findings into manuscripts for publication and/or formatted for submission of grants.

Minimum Qualifications:

Education: A recent Ph.D. with a strong background in molecular biology, microbiology or an equivalent field of research.

Experience & Skills: The successful candidate is expected to have documented research experience in molecular biology and/or microbiology, to be highly motivated, collaborative and hard working. Applicants must also possess excellent oral and written communication skills.

Preferred Expertise: In mycobacterial research,  high-throughput technologies and/ or ribosome biology.

Please submit (1) curriculum vitae (2) statement of career interests (3) contact information for 3 references.

The Wadsworth Center houses state-of-the-art core facilities in cell, molecular and structural biology and bioinformatics and sponsors an outstanding seminar program. In addition, two academic departments of the University of Albany School of Public Health are located here. The capital city of Albany offers a reasonable cost of living, diverse cultural activities and easy access to the beautiful Adirondack, Catskill and Berkshire Mountains.
