This research will investigate the evolution of antibiotic resistance in Gram-negative bacteria. Successful applicants will characterize the genetic pathways and experimental features that lead to high-level resistance to clinically-relevant antibiotics, then leverage this knowledge to develop protocols which delay or prevent the evolution of antibiotic resistance.
Requirements: Master’s in Biochemistry or Biology Experience with standard molecular biology techniques A strong background the fields of microbiology, chemical biology, and/or microbial genomics.
Funding for this work is derived from a FRQS Chercheur Boursier, and is guaranteed until at least 2023. Successful applicant will receive a minimum of $22,500 (PhD) per annum, augmented by internal and external funding.
