Recruitment/Posting Title Post Doc Associate
Department SEBS - Biochem & Microbiology
Salary Commensurate With Experience
Posting Summary

A post-doctoral research position is available in the Boyd Group. This position will focus on the study of the mechanisms that cells use to 1) build inorganic protein prosthetic groups called iron-sulfur (FeS) clusters, and 2) maturate FeS proteins. These processes, which are essential for life, are also antibiotic targets. The studies will be carried out in the model bacterium Bacillus subtilis and the human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus; the results from the studies will impact our understanding of iron-dependent processes from bacteria to humans. The qualified candidate will examine the functions of two proteins of unknown function that have roles in the aforementioned processes. This post-doc will use state-of-the-art mass spectrometry and DNA-sequencing to form hypotheses that can be tested using in vitro biochemical techniques. The position is intended for a molecular microbiologist or biochemist with experience examining protein function.

Approximately 75% of the teaching Postdoctoral scholar’s time will be focused on scholarly activities. For the remaining time, this Post-doc will assist the Principal Investigator in designing and implementing a laboratory-based wet and dry lab course in microbial physiology and biochemistry. During this time, this Post-doc will aid in the design and implementation of curricula, assign course and laboratory learning goals, assess student learning outcomes, and mentor students. An overarching goal of this fourth position is to ensure that the hire is prepared to successfully transition into a career as a teacher-scholar.
