Postdoctoral Associate
**Postdoctoral Associate**



**Description**



**Required Qualifications:** (As evidenced by an attached resume)



Doctoral degree or the equivalent degree from a University. High level of familiarity with the following: fungal pathogenesis, antimicrobial susceptibility testing, studying fungal virulence factors, studying drug mechanism of action, expertise in murine model of fungal infections, especially with Cryptococcus neoformans, Candida albicans and particularly Aspergillus fumigatus. Required expertise in Mass spectrometry analysis (i.e. LC-MS, GC-MS, HPLC) particularly, but not exclusively, in lipid research (e.g. phospholipids, sphingolipids, fatty acids, cholesterols); protein-protein interaction; the effect of lipids on membrane proteins; lipidomics and proteomic approaches.



**Preferred Qualifications:**



Experience in fungal pathogenesis, antimicrobial susceptibility testing, studying fungal virulence factors, studying drug mechanism of action, constructing fungal strains deficient in the sphingolipid synthesis genes, expertise in murine model of fungal infections, especially with Aspergillus fumigatus. Experience with lipid research (metabolism, analysis). Experience with molecular biology and biochemistry (proteins and lipids), and role of lipids in the biology of fungal cells. Experience with lipid research (metabolism, analysis). Familiarity with molecular biology and biochemistry (proteins and lipids), protein protein interaction, lipid-protein interaction, membrane structures, lipid function and role of lipids in biology of mammalian and/or microbial cells. Experience with mass spectrometry analysis, such as triple-quadruple mass spectrometer or similar.



**Brief Description of Duties:**



The Postdoctoral Associate will assist the Principal Investigator in the department of Molecular Genetics & Microbiology. The incumbent will conduct research and ensure that all experiments are appropriately conducted following the policies and procedures of Stony Brook University. This position involves many collaborations, thus the individual must work well together with other investigators as a team.



+ Drug susceptibility testing in vitro (microbial cultures) and in vivo (animals). Structure-activity relationships of new antifungal drugs. Drug toxicity studies in mammalian cell lines and in animals. Mass spectrometry experiments by LC-MS and GC-MS to understand the mechanisms of action of the antifungal drugs. LC-MS and GC-MS in the specialized fields of lipid research (e.g. phospholipids, sphingolipids, fatty acids, cholesterols); protein-protein interactions, effect of lipids on membrane proteins, lipidomics and proteomic approaches.

+ Analyze and interpret the results the experiments. Overcome pitfalls and provide



alternative solutions.

+ Write reports and manuscripts on the results obtained.

+ Present the results in a logical way and set up the next round of critical experimentations or questions.
