Postdoctoral Position on Fungal Pathogenesis and Antifungal Drug Resistance

A postdoctoral opportunity for a highly motivated candidate is immediately available in the laboratory of Chaoyang Xue in the Public Health Research Institute (PHRI), New Jersey Medical School, Rutgers University, Newark NJ, to study fungal pathogenesis and fungal lipids in antifungal drug resistance. The research in the Xue lab focuses on how human fungal pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans senses extracellular signals and controls intracellular signal transduction pathways that are important for cell development and virulence. We apply genetics, biochemistry and molecular biology to investigate the molecular basis of these fungal-host interactions. We are also interested in the studies related to fungal vaccine development, and antifungal drug resistance. Applicants should have a Ph.D. or M.D. degree in an area related to molecular biology, microbiology, or biochemistry. Prior experience with fungal research or lipid biology is not required but a plus.
