A postdoctoral position is currently available at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. The successful candidate will work on a NIH-funded, internationally collaborative project. The objective of the project is to use our newly developed genetic model and recently generated genomic resources to understand molecular mechanisms underlying schistosome resistance in schistosomiasis vector snails of the genera Biomphalaria and Bulinus. The long-term goal of the project is to developed snail-targeted, genetic programs for control of schistosomiasis, a parasitic disease that afflicts more than 200 million people in the world. An interdisciplinary approach, including genomics, genetics, and immunology, will be applied. The idea candidate is a highly motivated, self-disciplined individual who can work independently.


Minimum Qualifications:

Ph.D. in Biology or a related field.


Preferred Qualifications:

  • Familiar with multi-OMIC data analysis (basic bioinformatic skills).
  • Experience with molecular and cell biology technologies.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication (English).
  • Good knowledge in genetics, genomics, immunology, and molecular biology.
  • Experience with schistosomiasis, schistosomes and their vector snails preferred, but not required.


Application Instructions:

The position is available for one year with the possibility of renewal (up to 2-3 years), depending on satisfactory performance. Salary is commensurate with experience. Application materials consisting of a cover letter, CV, and the names of three references, should be emailed to Dr. Si-Ming Zhang (
