Post Doctoral Scientist Yr 1-3 – RI Microbial Bailey


The Center for Microbial Pathogenesis is seeking applications for a full-time Post Doctoral Scientist.  The successful candidate will conduct research on the gut microbiota, including computational and experimental projects.  The primary project will focus on determining the impact of experimental vaccines on the gut microbiome, with developing studies focused on bidirectional interactions between the central nervous system and the gut microbiota (i.e., the brain-gut microbiota axis).  The successful applicant will be responsible for designing, executing and analyzing controlled scientific experiments.  Research tasks will necessitate expertise in microbiology or immunology, with a willingness to cross-train in the neurosciences.  Experience in bioinformatics, is strongly desired, but not required.  Experience with immunology (e.g., flow cytometry, real-time PCR, Western blotting), microbiology (e.g., microscopy/imaging, fluorescent in-situ hybridization, PCR), and neuroscience (e.g., immunohistochemistry, animal behavior analyses) are also desired. As a post doctoral scientist, the applicant will be part of an active team of researchers and receive all the necessary training.  Post doctoral scientists will work under the mentorship of the Principal Investigator.  The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital () is undergoing substantial growth.  Join a world-class organization building the future of pediatric care.
