A collaborative team at Rice University invites applications for a postdoctoral research position under the joint supervision of Profs. Lauren Stadler, Caroline Masiello, and Joff Silberg. The postdoctoral researcher will work on an NSF-funded project focused on environmental applications of synthetic biology.
The specific goals of the project are to understand: (1) what conditions promote genetic mobilization of antibiotic resistance genes in wastewater communities? (2) which community members are critical to the transfer of antibiotic resistance genes to pathogens?
The research project will involve the development of biosensors for measuring horizontal gene transfer of antibiotic resistance genes in situ and the deployment of the sensors in bioreactor experiments.
