Description Postdoctoral Scholar – Integrative Biology – Shapira Lab

Description:

The Shapira lab is looking to hire a talented postdoctoral candidate to take part in an NIH-funded project employing C. elegans to study changes in microbiome structure and function during aging and their impacts on host aging.

Research in the Shapira lab seeks to understand the fundamentals of host-microbe interactions in the context of the whole organism. Research focuses on the shaping the gut microbiome, employing microcosm experiments, synthetic communities, NGS, and functional analyses. Additional efforts are aimed at understanding how gut commensals affect host immunity and host-pathogen interactions. The level of investigation in the Shapira lab spans the range between molecular mechanisms, ecological constraints and impact on evolution. To achieve all this, we are using the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, a powerful model organism for genetic studies, as a host model. Current research includes three major directions: a) The role of host genes in shaping structure and function of the gut microbiome; b) Age-dependent change in microbiome composition and impact; and c) effects of the gut microbiome on host fitness.

Responsibilities:

Carrying on research, preferably while mentoring undergraduate students, sharing results through lab meetings and discussions with the PI, and summarizing results in the form of scientific papers. In addition, postdocs are expected to take part, as all other lab members, in a limited range of standard lab chores.

Required Qualifications by start date:

• PhD or Equivalent International Degree

• Candidate may have no more than 4 years of post degree research experience

Preferred Qualifications by start date:

Appointment: This position will be reporting to Professor Shapira at the Shapira Lab at UC Berkeley. The initial appointment is 100% for one (1) year with the expectation of extension based on satisfactory performance and availability of funding.
