The Position


We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work in the laboratory of Dr. Eric Brown. The incumbent will conduct original and significant basic investigations in the area of the pathogenesis of infectious diseases and host response to infection. The expectation is that this work will result in novel and important contributions to understanding of host-pathogen interactions, as evidenced by publication in top tier scientific journals. The laboratory explores both host and pathogen genetics as its approach to understanding the host-pathogen interface and uses a wide variety of genetic, cell biologic, and biochemical methods to investigate these questions. Projects in the Brown lab currently focus on molecular mechanisms and pathologic consequences of S aureus and P aeruginosa interactions with host cells, including novel bacterial secretion mechanisms involved in virulence.


PhD, MD, or MD/PhD with experience and training in the conduct of research in host-pathogen interactions, microbiology, cell biology, immunology or other relevant area. Significant experience with the techniques of modern molecular and cell biology is necessary. Ability to initiate and complete significant experimental projects, as evidenced by excellent publications, is essential.
