Postdoctoral Training Opportunity - Research Fellow

The Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine research group of Karla Satchell, Professor of Microbiology-Immunology, is seeking a postdoctoral trainee to work on host cell signaling in response to bacterial protein toxins. The work will impact understanding of bacterial pathogenesis of Vibrio cholerae, the agent of cholera, and Vibrio vulnificus, which causes severe septic infections. Ideal candidates should have demonstrated experience through graduate studies in cell biology and signaling, RNA-seq, and/or proteomic profiling. This is a great opportunity for a candidate looking to blend prior training in cell biology and signaling with microbial infection models. Prior experience in microbial infection with BSL2 pathogens is a positive but not essential.

For those specifically interested in cancer, consider also a second posted position available on therapeutics development against cancer.
