Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Host‐Bacteria Interactions
1-2 positions are available immediately for highly motivated postdoctoral scientists to join Jeongmin Song’s lab in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Cornell University. The long‐term goal of our group is to understand the pathogenic mechanisms of the typhoid fever‐causing Salmonella Typhi, with an emphasis on its secreted virulence factor typhoid toxin. The postdoc will investigate the contribution of typhoid toxin to various aspects of S. Typhi infection and pathogenesis using a combination of biochemistry, cell biology, animal models, bacterial genetics, immunology, and glycobiology.
The successful candidate must have a PhD in a relevant discipline, an excellent work ethic, and a strong background in biochemistry and molecular biology. A solid publication record and experience in biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, immunology, and/or glycobiology are desirable. Candidates should submit a CV, a cover letter describing your research experience and professional goals, and contact information for at least three professional references to Jeongmin Song (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Song lab is located in Cornell’s Veterinary Medical Center, a modern state of the art research facility conducive to collaborative and interdisciplinary research. Ithaca is a city on Cayuga Lake, in New York’s Finger Lakes region.
