GASTROENTEROLOGY

Duties and Responsibilities:

The Department of Gastroenterology at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine seeks a full time non-tenure track Investigator at the rank of Research Assistant Professor. The project that Research Assistant Professor will work on investigating the mechanisms by which enteropathogenic E. coli disrupts intestinal epithelial tight junctions. The working hypothesis is that a number of different bacterial effector proteins that are translocated into host cells target the polarity complex in a coordinated fashion ultimately leading to tight junction disruption. Research Assistant Professor’s thesis work and post-doctoral experience have been focused on tight junctions. The work on this project will include microscopic imaging analysis of localization and expression levels of tight junction and polarity complex proteins. Immunoblots will be performed to confirm the imaging data. Her work will also require the propagation of epithelial cell monolayers and bacterial cultures. She will also be required to generate key mutant strains of EPEC and their respective complements. Some experiments will require cell transfection in order to deliver bacterial proteins into host cells. Ultimately, the successful candidate will require conducting the infection of mice and analysis of mouse intestine from control and infected animals.

A Ph.D. in a biological sciences area is required.
