Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Host Bacteria Interactions at Cornell University


A position is available immediately for a highly motivated postdoctoral scientist to
join Jeongmin Song’s lab in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at
Cornell University. The long‐term goal of our group is to understand the
pathogenic mechanisms of the typhoid fever‐causing Salmonella Typhi, with an
emphasis on its secreted virulence factor typhoid toxin. The postdoc will
investigate the contribution of typhoid toxin to various aspects of S. Typhi
infection and pathogenesis using a combination of biochemistry, cell biology,
animal models, bacterial genetics, immunology, and glycobiology.

The successful candidate must have a PhD in a relevant discipline, an excellent
work ethic, and a strong background in biochemistry and molecular biology. A
solid publication record and experience in biochemistry, molecular biology, cell
biology, immunology, and/or glycobiology are desirable. Candidates should submit
a CV, a cover letter describing your research experience and professional goals,
and contact information for at least three professional references to Jeongmin
Song (jeongmin.song@cornell.edu).

The Song lab is located in Cornell’s Veterinary Medical Center, a modern state of
the art research facility conducive to collaborative and interdisciplinary research.
Ithaca is a city on Cayuga Lake, in New York’s Finger Lakes region.
