Prof. Wilson’s Infectious Disease Genomics group are at the forefront of the development and application of approaches for infectious disease genomics, including genome-wide association studies and expression analyses for understanding the genetic basis of observable differences in important microbiological traits including disease severity and drug resistance.
We are looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher to work closely with the wider research team to generate data in the lab, including large scale RNA extractions in collaboration with the senior postdoctoral researcher within the team, and phenotypically characterise a bank of carriage and infection associated strains for comparative analysis. Additionally, the post holder will pursue an ambitious sampling study, liaising with clinical microbiological diagnostics labs in Oxford and across the country to create a large library of clinically derived bacteria.
To be considered you will hold, or be close to completion of a DPhil/PhD molecular or genomic microbiology. You will also have relevant research experience including bacterial culture and DNA, RNA and protein extractions, as well as possessing sufficient specialist knowledge in bacterial virulence, bacterial gene expression, and/or host-pathogen interactions to enable the development of hypothesise.
We particularly welcome applications from people with both wet and dry lab skills, as it is envisaged that the post holder will transition from a focus on data generation to analysis over the course of the post.
The position is full time and fixed-term for 2 years.
The closing date for application is 12.00pm on the 10th of April 2023.
You will be required to upload a CV and a cover letter as part of your online application. The cover letter should clearly describe how you meet each of the selection criteria listed in the job description.
