Summary

A post-doctoral position is available in the laboratory of David Rogers in the field of molecular mycology in the area of antifungal drug resistance. The overarching goal of the Rogers lab is to utilize genome-wide and molecular biological approaches to understand the molecular and genetic basis of antifungal drug resistance in pathogenic opportunistic fungi. The long-term goal of this project is to advance the treatment of invasive candidiasis by identifying the molecular mechanisms underpinning antifungal resistance in the emerging fungal pathogen Candida auris, and to ultimately use this understanding to design therapeutic strategies to overcome them. Our immediate objective is to fully understand the genetic and molecular basis of antifungal resistance in clinical isolates of C. auris.

Minimum Experience

The successful candidate should have: (1) a Ph.D. degree in microbiology, molecular biology, or a related field, (2) strong skills in molecular biology and genomics (experience in the genetic manipulation of yeast and a proficient understanding of next generation sequencing, analysis, and bioinformatics), (3) project management and scientific writing experience, and (4) excellent communication skills and a collaborative attitude.
