We are seeking enthusiastic individuals motivated by challenging biological questions and a medically-important disease to join our lab team. Our most up-to-date work (manuscripts in press and submission) is featured on BioRxiv to give the best sense of what we're up to. The groundwork has been laid for exciting opportunities, so now is a great time to join!
PhD Student: Email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a rotation.
Post-doctoral Fellow: Send a cover letter and CV to email@example.com. Stanford offers competitive PD salaries (https://postdocs.stanford.edu/funding-guidelines).
Examples of projects recruiting:
1. Develop tools to perform the first genome-scale screen in Plasmodium for essential functions. We have performed a mutagenesis screen to identify essential genes required for apicoplast biogenesis in malaria (Tang et al PLOS Biology 2019). A real feat! But wouldn't it be even cooler if we could interrogate every gene in the genome? We have ideas of using new CRISPR tools, transposon based mutagenesis, or new genome analysis strategeis to do this. Interested in screens, genetic tool development, large datasets.. this one's for you!
2. Mystery enzymes. Genes with annotated enzymatic domains have evolved new functions in plastid biogenesis in malaria parasites. Are they making a new signaling molecule? A new lipid? Interested in and background in metabolomics, protein biochemistry, protein evolution... this one's for you!
