POSTDOCTORAL POSITION available to investigate host-pathogen interactions using the protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii as a model system. Related to the malaria parasite, Plasmodium, Toxoplasma causes life-threatening infection in immunocompromised patients and has been linked to altering the behavior of its host. We are investigating cellular changes that occur in both the parasite and its host that are critical to pathogenesis.
Position requires a Ph.D., expertise in molecular biology, neuroscience, or cell signaling, and excellent communication skills (speaking and writing English). Experience in microbiology/parasitology is a plus, but not required. Submit CV, project plan (half page), and contact information for three references to Dr. Bill Sullivan (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applicants that fail to include a brief description of project ideas will not be considered.
Our lab is part of the Intracellular Pathogens Group at IU, which meets regularly to foster innovation and collaboration. Visit www.sullivanlab.com for more information.
