Research Fellow, Biological Sciences
The successful candidate will work with A/P Cynthia He on flagellum biogenesis in Trypanosoma brucei, an infectious pathogen causing diseases in humans and animals.
The main responsibilities of the position include: -
- Advanced molecular engineering of Trypanosoma brucei, transient and stable transfection of this eukaryotic parasite.
- Advanced imaging of T. brucei, live and fixed, using confocal microscopy, super-resolution microscopy and electron microscopy.
- BioID and other interactome studies.
PhD in molecular and cell biology with relevant training in kinetoplastid cell biology.
Advanced molecular, cell and biochemistry in T. brucei or other related pathogens. Candidates must be familiar with advanced imaging methods including electron microscopy, confocal microscopy and super resolution microscopy.
Prior experiences with BSL2 pathogens, particularly unicellular pathogens/flagellates.
