Position Description

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) conducts and supports a global program of research to better understand, treat, and ultimately prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases. The Laboratory of Clinical Immunology and Microbiology (LCIM) within the NIAID Division of Intramural Research (DIR) is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral fellow position within the Bacterial Pathogenesis and Antimicrobial Resistance Unit. This position will offer a unique opportunity to work at the intersection of pathogen genomics, clinical infectious diseases, and computational biology. The lab uses a variety of genomics and proteomics approaches in combination with in vitro directed evolution to study bacterial pathogens and antimicrobial resistance, with a focus on intra-host evolution in the context of infection. Access to state-of-the-art sequencing, mass spectrometry, and computational resources will be available.

Requirements

  • Ph.D. work in bioinformatics, computational or systems biology, computer science, engineering, physics, or a related discipline
  • Proficiency in quantitative data analysis in the Linux/Unix environment and experience with programs such as R/Bioconductor and/or coding in scripting languages such as Python or Perl
  • Experience with genomic analysis
  • A record of relevant high-quality publications
  • Interest in bacterial pathogen evolution and/or bacterial antimicrobial resistance

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience with standard molecular biology techniques
  • Experience with bacterial culture techniques

To apply, interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae (CV), bibliography, three references who may be contacted for letters, and a short statement about your skill set and clinical research interests (no more than two pages) to Dr. John Dekker at john.dekker@nih.gov.
