Postdoctoral Scholar in antimicrobial resistance: USA
The Dunlop Lab, within the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Boston University, is looking for a postdoctoral scholar for an interdisciplinary research project in the area of feedback and stochastic gene expression related to single-cell antibiotic resistance.
Research Areas Include
- Time-lapse imaging of fluorescent reporters for multidrug resistance in bacteria.
- Microfluidics coupled with microscopy to obtain quantitative measurements of single-cell dynamics. Possible extensions using optogenetic methods.
- Quantification of mutation rates.
- Ph.D. in bioengineering, microbiology, molecular biology, synthetic biology, biophysics, chemical engineering, or a closely related field.
- Experience planning and conducting microbiology experiments is required.
- The ideal candidate will be familiar with the following areas, with extensive expertise in one or more of the topics: fluorescence microscopy, single-cell analysis, multi-drug resistance, or microfluidics.
- Individuals with strong microbiology skills and a demonstrated interest in quantitative science are also welcome to apply.
- Must be able to communicate clearly in both written documents and oral presentations.
- The candidate must work well with individuals from a variety of backgrounds and have the ability to make independent decisions about experiments and research directions, while maintaining regular communication with lab members and the PI.
