The Program in Chemical Biology at OHSU has an open postdoctoral researcher position in the Beatty Lab. The fellow will conduct research at the interface of chemistry and infectious disease, working collaboratively to develop and optimize novel enzyme probes. Two long-term goals for this project are: i) to understand how mycobacterial pathogens synthesize their cell walls and ii) to study beta-lactam drug susceptibility in replicating and dormant Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
Projects in the Beatty Lab utilize skills in the areas of chemistry, molecular imaging, cell biology, protein engineering, bioconjugation reactions (e.g., "click chemistry"), biochemistry, and molecular biology.
Salary for this position aligns with the NIH Scale.
