Welcome to our new PhD student, Anu!
Research Fellow in Microbial Cell Biology of Bacterial Communities
We are seeking a highly motivated microbiologist with strong training in molecular biology, bacterial cell biology, and/or microbial communities. This position involves research on the community organization of medically relevant pathogens using molecular and cell biology approaches. Specific projects include the study of uni- and multi-cellular communities in vitro and in animal models of disease.
The candidate should have a Ph.D. in Microbiology or a related field (or obtain one by Fall 2012), a strong publication record, and expertise in molecular biology/biochemistry/microscopy/imaging data analysis.
Salary is internationally competitive at the post-doctoral level, and commensurate with experience. We invite the application of researchers world-wide; the research atmosphere at NTU and Singapore is diverse, vibrant, and well-funded. The research will involve a substantial level of international collaboration with leading academic institutions.
Interested applicants should submit: 1) a cover letter (including a short description of your research interests), 2) curriculum vitae, and 3) a list of three references with contact information including mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address to kkline[at]ntu.edu.sg.
Only shortlisted candidates will be notified.

…and then on to the Bacterial Cell Surfaces Gordon Research Conference at Mount Snow, Vermont.
The meeting was full of interesting talks – some favorites included Mariana Pinho, Silvia Bulgheresi, Joseph Mougous, Ry Young, Arash Komeili, Kumaran Ramamurthi, Marcia Goldberg, and many more. In between scientific sessions I got to play outside, and caught up with more of the extended Seifert and Hultgren lab families.
