The Michigan Society of Fellows offers a unique opportunity for postdoctoral fellows that provides three years of academic support. Fellows are funded to initiate a research program and contribute to the teaching mission of the University.
Applicants are sought to fill multiple Postdoctoral Fellow positions to work on interdisciplinary projects in the molecular bases of infectious diseases and cancer in the laboratory of Dr. Eric J. Sundberg (www.sundberglab.org), Professor of Medicine and Co-Director of the Basic Science Division of the Institute of Human Virology (IHV; www.ihv.org) at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM; www.medschool.umaryland.edu) in Baltimore, Maryland.
A NIH-funded postdoctoral fellow position is available in the laboratory of Mario Feldman, PhD, at the Department of Molecular Microbiology, Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis, Missouri, USA. The Feldman lab investigates the virulence and survival mechanisms of the opportunistic pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii. The successful candidate will be driving research into the molecular mechanisms that govern protein secretion and cell surface organization in this pathogen.
Postdoctoral Fellows are sought to join an interdisciplinary research team (Profs. Louis Mansky and Joachim Mueller) that is focused on the application of quantitative fluorescence imaging technologies (e.g., TIRF, PALM, FCS) for ongoing studies of human retrovirus (HIV & HTLV) particle biogenesis.
The successful candidate will develop models connecting evolution and epidemiology with the ultimate goal to predict and prevent human epidemics. Many viruses evolve rapidly and differently during various modes and rates of spread. This project will elucidate how the genetic evolution is linked to different spread patterns. The main virus to be studied is HIV, but other pathogens may become included in the project. We are looking for candidates with expertise in computational biology, evolutionary biology, and/or phylogenetics with interests in mathematical epidemiology.
There are new opportunities in soil microbiome science at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory if you have experience in computational biology or soil microbiology. We are looking for two innovative postdoctoral fellows—one in biochemical reaction network modeling and one in soil microbiology—to join a large, multi-disciplinary research team. Build your career, your contacts, and your research portfolio with meaningful work in the complex and consequential realm of the soil microbiome.
Looking for an exceptionally-talented individual with a background in computational/statistical science. Ideally the person should have exposure to working on Linux-type servers (know how of bash/awk scripting) with knowledge of programming languages (e.g. C/C++, Python, Perl, R, HTML, Java etc).
The Medical School, the College of Pharmacy, and College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA), and the Life Sciences Institute (LSI) at the University of Michigan have partnered to offer the Michigan Life Sciences Fellows program, a highly competitive postdoctoral fellowship program to enhance the research program of the entire life sciences enterprise at Michigan.
