POSITIONS AVAILABLE

Postdoctoral postions available:  Pathogenesis of intracellular bacterial pathogens and pathogen microbiome interactions in humans

 

The Nelson lab (micro.medicine.iu.edu/faculty/primary-faculty/david-nelson-ph-d) is seeking motivated postdoctoral fellows to study the molecular basis of Chlamydia host and tissue tropism. Chlamydiae are ubiquitous intracellular bacterial pathogens whose pathogenicity is poorly understood. We and other groups have recently developed tools that have opened unprecedented opportunities for dissecting the molecular basis of virulence and tissue tropism of these important pathogens. Available projects include 1) dissecting the molecular basis of Chlamydia spp. host tropism and, 2) studying the molecular basis of C. trachomatis tissue tropism in humans, both using new bacterial genetic approaches (see project 4R01AI099278 at NIH reporter). Opportunities for training in immune responses to urogenital tract infections and Chlamydia urogenital microbiome interactions in humans are available separately or as part of project #2 above (see project 1R01AI116706). Salary will be commensurate with NRSA stipend guidelines and will include a generous benefits package.

 

The positions require a Ph.D. and or M.D., and candidates with prior training in microbial pathogenesis, eukaryotic cell culture and molecular biology are preferred but we are willing to train motivated individuals lack expertise these areas. Submit CV and contact information for three references to nelsonde@Indiana.edu.

 

Our laboratories are part of the “BIP” (Biology of Intracellular Pathogens) group at the Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM): http://wjsulliv.wix.com/bipatiu. Located in downtown Indianapolis, IUSM is the second largest medical school in the US and boasts an outstanding intellectual atmosphere and core facilities. IUSM was nationally ranked in the Top 30 Best Places to Work for Postdocs. IUSM is an equal opportunity employer.

Postdoctoral Trainees wanted in cell and molecular parasitology, host-pathogen interactions, gene expression regulation.

We are accepting applications for postdoctoral candidates who are interested in the study of gene expression regulation in Toxoplasma gondii parasites and in Toxoplasma-infected host cells. Related to the malaria parasite, Toxoplasma causes serious opportunistic disease in congenitally infected infants and in immunocompromised (HIV/AIDS) patients. Our lab studies the biology of the parasite and host-pathogen interactions in an effort to translate these discoveries into new antimicrobial drug treatments. These are NIH-funded positions in the laboratory of Bill Sullivan (sullivanlab.com).

 

The position requires a Ph.D., expertise in cell/molecular biology or biochemistry, and excellent communication skills (speaking and writing English). Experience in microbiology/parasitology is a plus, but not required. Submit CV and contact information for three references to wjsulliv@iu.edu. Applicants that include a brief description of project ideas will have priority.

Pediatric Infectious Disease Researchers: Assistant, Associate or Full Professor

 

The Ryan White Center for Pediatric Infectious Diseases and Global Health at Indiana University and Riley Hospital for Children, in Indianapolis, Indiana, is looking for research faculty (MD, PhD or MD/PhD) to join our growing global pediatric ID research team. The Center is a national leader in pediatric malaria and HIV research, and we are seeking faculty with research experience in these areas. The positions are tenure track positions, and will provide a highly competitive salary and exceptional support for faculty research.

 

Faculty members will have a minimum of 75% protected time for research, and will work in the Wells Center for Pediatric Research, a research center with state of the art equipment and facilities.

 

Indiana University is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, ethnicity, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation or identity, national origin, disability status, or protected veteran status. This institution is also a provider of ADA services.

 

Please respond with a CV and brief description of your research and research goals to the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Search Committee, c/o Rachel Johnson, johnsore@iu.edu

Postdoctoral Trainee wanted in cell and molecular parasitology to study autophagy.

 

We are accepting applications for postdoctoral candidates who are interested in elucidating the role of autophagy proteins in the medically important pathogen Toxoplasma gondii. Related to the malaria parasite, Toxoplasma causes serious opportunistic disease in congenitally infected infants and in immunocompromised (HIV/AIDS) patients. This is an NIH-funded position in the laboratories of Drs. Gustavo Arrizabalaga (arrizabalagalab.org) and Bill Sullivan (sullivanlab.com). Projects include investigating the role of unusual parasite autophagy proteins in microbial latency and how post-translational modifications affect autophagy processes.

 

The position requires a Ph.D., expertise in cell/molecular biology or biochemistry, and excellent communication skills (speaking and writing English). Experience in microbiology/parasitology is a plus, but not required. Submit CV and contact information for three references to garrizab@iu.edu. Applicants that include a brief description of project ideas will have priority.
