Postdoc Research Associates
University of Connecticut Two postdoctoral research associate positions are currently available in the laboratory of Dr. Steven J. Geary at the Department of Pathobiology & Veterinary Science, University of Connecticut.
The focus of these positions will be to determine mechanisms of pathogenesis of Mycoplasma mycoides sbsp mycoides small colony (Mmmsc) and to use this information to develop a safe and effective vaccine against Mmmsc disease in cattle, contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP).
Mmmsc is a high-consequence, foreign animal disease pathogen requiring biosafety level (BSL) 3 containment. This project will be conducted in collaboration with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Animal Disease Center (NADC) researchers at their facility in Ames, Iowa. The successful candidates will work at either or both locations (Storrs, CT and Ames, IA).
Texas Tech University Strieder-Barboza Lab focuses on elucidating molecular and cellular mechanisms by which adipose tissue impacts metabolic disease pathogenesis and production in dairy and beef cattle. We are seeking for a postdoctoral fellow who will lead a federally funded project on elucidating mechanisms of intramuscular fat (marbling) accumulation in beef cattle. The project includes in vivo studies combined with transcriptome analysis, cell culture models, and other in vitro assays to evaluate cell function.

EpiVax, Inc. The mission of our company is to "Improve human (and animal) life everywhere". We develop immunoinformatics tools that are used to evaluate, design, and improve vaccines and biologics for humans and animals (currently we have tools for swine). We are looking for a new team member who will be focused on developing and using vaccine design tools for swine. This person will work closely with our immunoinformatics team and outside collaborators. Great programming skills are a real plus and the person must also be good at presenting, analyzing, writing, and speaking (making presentations). We work as a team, so some experience working with a team is also very important. This position would not be a remote position.

PhD Research Assistant
Oklahoma State University My lab focuses on the development of next-generation antibiotic alternatives for disease control and prevention through modulation of gut immunity and microbiome. We are seeking a highly motivated student to join our dynamic team in summer or fall 2023 to study the molecular mechanisms by which epigenetic compounds regulate the synthesis of antimicrobial peptides. The student will be trained with various cutting-edge epigenetic and epigenomic techniques. Additionally, the student will be involved in animal experimentation and postmortem transcriptome and microbiome studies.
Postdoctoral Research Associate
Oklahoma State University The Glenn Zhang Lab at Oklahoma State University focuses on the development of next-generation antibiotic alternatives for disease control and prevention through modulation of gut immunity and microbiome. We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate to lead a newly funded USDA project to study the molecular mechanisms by which epigenetic compounds regulate the synthesis of antimicrobial peptides. An individual with hands-on experience in genomic, epigenomic, microbiomic, and/or bioinformatic techniques are particularly encouraged to apply.
Postdoctoral Research Associate
University of Wisconsin-Madison The Hite lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison focuses on the development of next-generation approaches to limit the evolution of antibiotic resistance and pathogen spillovers through integrated, bioenergetic-based tools that target bacterial metabolism to increase the costs of resistance. Our lab combines approaches from multiple disciplines including mathematical modeling, evolutionary biology, ecology, and microbiology.
We seek a highly motivated individual with a proven record of bringing initiative to propel projects forward to lead a USDA-funded project using Salmonella-infected poultry and new encapsulated food supplements and prebiotics as a case study for harnessing metabolic adaptations to prevent or slow down pathogen evolution. Postdocs with experience working with poultry infection models, gut microbiomes, and antibiotics are particularly encouraged to apply. Current funding 1 year with opportunities for extension.
