The Zhu Laboratory in the Department of Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, is dedicated to understanding the metabolic interactions in the inflamed gut. We are looking for highly motivated postdoctoral fellows to study the following areas: 1) how beneficial gut commensal bacteria survive drastic changes in the nutritional environment during intestinal inflammation and how their survival strategies impact host immune status; 2) rational engineering of an obligate anaerobic bacterium to survive oxygen in the inflamed gut; 3) how an enteric bacterial pathogen rewires host metabolism to promote carcinogenesis in the gut. For more information, please go to our lab website: . 

The Zhu lab is located in Nashville, Tennessee, a music and cultural landmark filled with outdoor activities, amazing food, and professional sports.
