A post-doctoral position to participate in a project investigating molecular mechanisms of calcium signaling. The major objective is to characterize two molecular pathways mediating calcium regulation of virulence in a human pathogen, Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The research involves generating constructs for targeted measuring of intracellular levels of calcium, identifying components of signaling cascades, and determining their role in transcriptional regulation and biochemical responses. In addition, the project will involve animal studies in mice to determine the role of the pathways in host-pathogen interactions.
Work to be done in BSL2. Must comply with all EHS regulations for BSL2 labs.
