Baylor College of Medicine is seeking candidates for a Postdoctoral Associate to conduct original research in the area of prokaryotic and eukaryotic mutagenesis for the purpose of elucidating the molecular mechanisms of stochastic and directed evolution. This is a high risk, high reward project that will push and explore new biomedical frontiers related to personalized therapeutics that target diseases where clonal expansion of mutants reduce drug effectiveness. The ideal candidate will have substantial knowledge of molecular biology, demonstrated success as a recent PhD graduate, creative out-of-the box thinking, and willingness to join and work with a large, highly collaborative research team exploring the universe of adaptable medicines. Those with interest in phage, bacterial, or cancer biology, or fields where rapid change in nucleic acid sequences impact disease states, are particularly encouraged to apply.
