Emory University

Atlanta, GA, United States

A postdoctoral position is available at Kim’s microbiology/biophysics lab for a highly motivated candidate interested in solving fundamental questions in antibiotic resistance.

The available projects involve evaluating antibiotic resistance at single-cell resolution and elucidating mechanisms of antibiotic resistance. To address these goals, the lab combines microbiology, biophysics, advanced microscopy, and mathematical modeling. The lab is located at Emory University, a top-tier research university known for innovative research in clinical biology. The lab consists of talented researchers with various backgrounds, e.g., microbiology, computer science, and biophysics. The lab is affiliated with Emory Antibiotic Resistance Center, the Department of Physics, and Emory School of Medicine. The successful candidate will join a highly collaborative team in an excellent scientific environment. For the detail of the research directions in the lab, please see .

The successful candidate will hold a PhD in biology, biophysics, biochemistry, physics, or a related field. Strong experience in molecular biology and/or bacteriology is required. Experience of quantitative modeling is desired but not necessary.
