The laboratory of Dr. Gustavo Arrizabalaga is accepting applications for postdoctoral candidates who are interested in investigating the cell and molecular biology of Toxoplasma gondii. Related to the malaria parasite, Toxoplasma causes serious opportunistic disease in congenitally infected infants and in immunocompromised (HIV/AIDS) patients. Ongoing NIH-funded projects in the lab include investigating the morphological dynamics of the Toxoplasma mitochondrion, and characterizing phosphatases and kinases involved in the parasite's lytic cycle.
More information about the lab can be found at https://www.arrizabalagalab.org. The IU School of Medicine is a hub for parasitology research with multiple labs investigating various aspects of Toxoplasma and the malaria parasite Plasmodium. Located in downtown Indianapolis, IU School of Medicine is the second largest medical school in the US and boasts an outstanding intellectual atmosphere and core facilities. IUSM is an equal opportunity employer.
The position requires a Ph.D., expertise in cell/molecular biology or biochemistry, and excellent communication skills. Experience in microbiology and cell biology is a plus, but not required.
