Department:Baliga
Location:Seattle, WA

The Baliga Lab is seeking an outstanding candidate at the Postdoctoral Fellow or Research Scientist level to join a cross-disciplinary team to dissect molecular mechanisms and evolutionary dynamics of microbial adaptation to structured environments. This NIH-funded project builds on prior work in the Baliga Lab that demonstrated the emergence of “memory” in microbes subjected to laboratory evolution in repetitive, spatiotemporally coupled environmental changes. This project has significant implications on understanding how microbes gain resistance to antimicrobials by anticipating and adapting in advance to future stressful environments. The position offers an extraordinary team-based science environment with opportunities for significant growth, training, and career advancements.

Job responsibilities will include:

  • Working on experimental approaches to manipulate adaptation of microbes to structured environments.
  • Participating in collaborative projects with other leading academic research collaborators on experimental and computational approaches to better understand microbial adaptations, with strong applications to prevent AMR.
  • Expertise in molecular biology laboratory technique is essential including expertise in confocal imaging, flow cytometry, high-throughput transcriptional profiling techniques (e.g. RNA-Seq, Fluidigm), and microfluidics. Prior experience with yeast is desirable.
  • Design, carry out, interpret and communicate experiments in a consistent and reproducible manner.

Qualifications:

  • Ph.D. in molecular biology, evolutionary biology, or a related scientific discipline (required).
  • Expertise in molecular biology laboratory technique is essential including expertise in confocal imaging, flow cytometry, high-throughput transcriptional profiling techniques (e.g. RNA-Seq, Fluidigm), and microfluidics. Prior experience with yeast is desirable.
  • Expertise in analysis, interpretation and applied biological research on large multivariate molecular profiling datasets.
  • Experience with genome engineering and manipulation through high-throughput experiments.
  • Experience developing and integrating data and tools to distill knowledge from high-throughput experiments.
  • A track record demonstrating scientific creativity, collaboration, and independence.

ISB is an EOE (M/F/disabled/veteran status) employer.
