PhD position at VIB-VUB Center for Structural Biology in Brussels, Belgium
I am currently opening a fully funded PhD position to start my lab at the VIB-VUB Center for Structural Biology in Brussels (Belgium).
Duration: 4 years.
Starting date: January 2020 (flexible).
Together with a bioinformatician and 2 master students, we are filling the current gaps in the understanding of the virulence of a priority 1 bacterial pathogen called Acinetobacter baumannii (Biosafety level 2) using versatile cellular models (including amoebae) and high-throughput approaches. In parallel, we are identifying new molecules with antibiotics/antivirulence activities to fight multi-drugs resistant A. baumannii.
Candidates with a background/curiosity (but not restricted) in molecular biology, genetics, microscopy, host-pathogen interactions, drugs screening, bioinformatics and/or cellular infections are encouraged to apply by sending their CV and any relevant information.
