A NIH-funded POSTDOCTORAL position is available to study HOST-PATHOGENINTERACTIONS in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Indiana University School of Medicine. Lyme disease is the number one reported vector-borne infections in the US, with an estimate of 300K cases annually. Diagnosis of early Lyme disease remains challenging and a human vaccine is currently unavailable. The project focuses on elucidating the mechanisms underlying the pathogen adaptation to the diverse host environments and the host responses to the infection, with the goal to develop new strategies for diagnosis and prevention of Lyme disease. This position provides an excellent training and career development opportunity in the area of infectious diseases and bacterial pathogenesis.
A degree of Ph.D. or M.D. with strong molecular biology experience is required. Background in Microbiology or Immunology is a plus.
