The Philips Laboratory in the Division of Infectious Diseases at Washington University in St. Louis, MO is recruiting a postdoctoral research associate to participate in NIH-funded projects. We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral associate to study host-pathogen interactions governing immune control of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (http://www.jenphilipslab.com/).
In particular, we are looking for candidates with prior training in protein biochemistry or structural biology to apply their training to study bacterial effectors. In collaboration with Dr. Thomas Brett’s laboratory, the candidate will crystalize an M. tuberculosis effector that is essential for innate immune evasion. The project will involve establishing assays to demonstrate the biochemical activity of the effector and screening for small molecule inhibitors.
Applicants should have a strong interest in tuberculosis, microbial pathogenesis, and innate immunity, but need not have worked in these areas previously. A CV and research statement should be sent to Jennifer A. Philips at firstname.lastname@example.org.
