About This PhD Project

Project Description

Interested in antibiotic drug discovery with a multidisciplinary approach? We are too! The Cardona Lab is looking for a graduate student for September 2019/January 2020. The position involves working with a highly antibiotic resistant Gram-negative pathogen with relevance to cystic fibrosis, Burkholderia cepacia complex to build a CRISPRi library in essential genes. The library will be used in the development of a method that applies chemoinformatics and artificial intelligence (deep learning) to discover new antibiotics.

Individuals with degrees in Biochemistry, Microbiology, Genetics, or Biology and an interest in Bioinformatics or Medicinal Chemistry are welcome to contact Dr. Cardona at with a CV and a copy of University transcripts.

The Position is fully funded by Cystic Fibrosis foundations in USA and Canada (CFF and CFC).
