PostDoc position at VIB-VUB Center for Structural Biology in Brussels, Belgium

I am opening a postdoc position (fully funded) to start my lab at the VIB-VUB Center for Structural Biology in Brussels (Belgium).

Duration of the postdoc position: 2-3 years (flexible)
Starting date: December 2019-January 2020 (flexible)
Deadline for application: 13.09.19

Together with a bioinformatician, a PhD student and 2 master students, we aim at filling the current gaps in the understanding of the virulence of a top priority bacterial pathogen called Acinetobacter baumannii (Biosafety level 2 organism) using versatile cellular models (including amoebae) and high-throughput approaches. In parallel, we are identifying new molecules with antibiotic/antivirulence activities to fight multidrugs 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 and send their CV with any relevant information to
