Job Description

Our Commitment

Texas A&M University is committed to enriching the learning and working environment for all visitors, students, faculty, and staff by promoting a culture that embraces inclusion, diversity, equity, and accountability.  Diverse perspectives, talents, and identities are vital to accomplishing our mission and living our core values .

Who we are

The Department of Biology at Texas A&M University is responsible for research and teaching within the vast disciplines of the biological sciences, from molecular cell biology to ecology and evolutionary biology. Our faculty perform cutting-edge research in a wide array of biological sciences in the laboratory and in the field. Our graduate research programs prepare scientists for careers in academia, industry and government and enhance our understanding of the central role of biological systems in the global environment. Our undergraduate students gain a firm foundation in modern biological sciences to prepare them for a multitude of careers that depend on a solid understanding of biology. To learn more, please visit us at https://www.bio.tamu.edu/

What we want

An NIH-funded postdoctoral research position is available in the lab of Dr. Angela Mitchell in the Department of Biology at Texas A&M University. The overarching goal of the Mitchell lab is to understand the mechanisms that strengthen the outer membrane (OM) permeability barrier of gram-negative bacteria during stress. The OM is largely impermeable to both large and hydrophobic molecules, leading to the intrinsic resistance of gram-negative bacteria to many antibiotics. The lab’s general approach is to use genetics and biochemistry to interrogate (i) changes to the barrier during stress, (ii) the mechanisms that strengthen the barrier, and (iii) the role of these changes in antibiotic resistance and pathogenesis. You can find more information about our work at mitchelllab.wixsite.com/website . We seek highly motivated candidate with expertise in bacterial genetics, molecular biology, and/or biochemistry to join our team. The successful candidate will work on projects exploring the biogenesis and function of enterobacterial common antigen, a molecule we have found to be important for maintaining the OM permeability barrier, especially under stress (please see our recent publications Mitchell et al. 2018 ; Rai & Mitchell 2020. The selected candidate will subscribe to and support our commitment to Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accountability (IDEA) as stated above. If the description sounds interesting to you, we invite you to apply to be considered for this opportunity.
