Shamoo's research lab studies the dangerous rise of multi-drug resistant bacteria. With multi-drug resistant bacteria becoming increasingly common in hospitals, antibiotic resistance has threatened to return us to a pre-antibiotic era that would completely undermine modern medicine. His work seeks to elucidate the underlying biophysical principles of adaptation within bacterial populations during protein evolution. His group uses a combination of experimental evolution and biophysical approaches including X-ray crystallography, enzyme kinetics, protein folding, calorimetry and genomics to link changes in protein structure and function to their resulting phenotypes within evolving populations.
The Shamoo lab is hiring a postdoctoral research associate position in the area of structural biology and biochemistry to work on federally funded research projects in antibiotic resistance. A strong publication record in the fields of structural biology and biochemistry is required.
Rice University has an active postdoctoral training community (https://graduate.rice.edu/) and features a broad, world-class biosciences research community.
