Two post-doctoral positions in biology/biological physics
- Institute of Physical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Science
- Location: Warsaw, Poland
- Job Number: 7117627
- Posting Date: Dec 8, 2022
- Application Deadline: Jan 10, 2023
The project will involve:
-genetic engineering of E. coli strains to enable CRISPR/Cas9-based imaging of de novo mutations in live bacterial cells
-designing and creating a microfluidic device suitable for live imaging of 109 bacterial cells
-tracking antibiotic-resistant -spontaneous mutants that evolve in the device, and measuring their growth rate over several generations.
Other team members will use mathematical modelling to interpret the data and predict the effect of the genotype-to phenotype transition on the dynamics of bacterial infections.
You must have a PhD (or expect to obtain it) in physics, biology, or chemistry before the job start date.
