School Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
Department/Area Department of Immunology and Infectious Diseases
Position Description
The Grad Lab at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health invites creative and motivated researchers to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship position in our experimental team. The successful candidate will join our team of experimental biologists in the wet lab, using and developing molecular microbiological, experimental genetics, and population genomics tools to address the pathogenesis and biology of the important human pathogen Neisseria gonorrhoeae, the cause of the sexually transmitted disease gonorrhea and one of the most common bacterial infections worldwide. Multiple projects are available, including projects focusing on antimicrobial resistance; bacterial host/pathogen interactions; and/or fundamental bacteriology, including the development and application of innovative experimental genetics approaches in diverse bacterial isolates collected from patient specimens.

The Grad Lab is focused on the evolution, spread, and biology of infectious microbes, with a particular focus on Neisseria gonorrhoeae as a roadmap to address the challenges of antimicrobial resistance. Our team, comprised of researchers, postdocs, and graduate students, uses and develops innovative methods in experimental genetics and microbiology, interdisciplinary methods, and computational techniques to study the public health threat posed by microbial pathogens.
