Postdoc position on new antimicrobial’s mode of action and potential for resistance development (BB-B027C)
Found in: Neuvoo DK
Job description/research project/research area
The position is funded by a recently awarded grant from Novo Nordic Foundation. Our team is identifying new compounds and antibiotic adjuvants to eliminate bacterial “persisters” that are tolerant to common antibiotics. Your work will focus on identifying the mode of action of the novel compounds, and to assess the risk of bacteria developing resistance towards these compounds. Techniques will include a “chemical genetics” approach for identifying the mode of action and identification of genetic changes that lead to resistance. You are expected conduct research at the highest level and to supervise students.
Applicants should hold a PhD in molecular biology, biology, nanoscience, chemistry, or similar, and have a passion for interdisciplinary research.
