Postdoctoral Research Associate, Bioinformatics
We are seeking a creative scientist with a background in computational biology and microbiology to lead a genomic analysis-based antibiotic discovery project.
The successful applicant will join a team of talented researchers at the Antibiotic Discovery Center. Several drug lead candidates came out of our Center – ADEP (Conlon et al., Nature 2013); teixobactin (Ling et al., Nature 2015); darobactin (Imai et al., Nature 2019), and additional ones are in the process of characterization. Our findings show that there is a great opportunity to speed up discovery by introducing genomics-based computational approaches to identify both superior analogs of novel compounds we discovered, and novel ones based on pattern and network analysis of biosynthetic gene clusters.
The project is multidisciplinary and involves collaborators from both local (Harvard, MIT, Tufts) and national/international Institutions.
A strong record of publications in computational biology focused on microbial genomics is an essential requirement. Familiarity with biosynthetic gene clusters is a plus. The appointment will be for a minimum of 2 years with possible extension, starting immediately. If needed, work can be performed remotely. Competitive salary commensurate with experience, up to $55,000 annually, and a package of benefits.
