Candida Community Job Postings


circle Postdoctoral position in the Bennett Lab at Brown University (posted January 12, 2017)

A postdoctoral position is available in the Bennett lab at Brown University (http://biomed.brown.edu/labs/bennett/index.html). The Bennett lab investigates diverse aspects of Candida biology and disease. This includes molecular mechanisms of epigenetic switching, in which cells undergo heritable and reversible switching between alternative cell types. These switching events involve coordinated changes in transcriptional circuits and chromatin remodeling, revealing striking parallels to cell differentiation events in mammalian cells. We also investigate the processes by which both mitotic and parasexual reproduction lead to genetic variation in Candida species. This includes studies addressing mechanisms of genetic recombination and the role of aneuploidy in modifying important fungal phenotypes. Finally, comparative genomics is being used to examine clinical isolates and to define novel pathways impacting commensalism, pathogenesis and drug resistance. This utilizes next-gen sequencing approaches to enable system level analyses of fungal pathways important for disease.

Qualifications: PhD in a related field, including genetics, microbiology or a related discipline. The successful applicant must have demonstrated excellence in research including a proven track record for productivity and publications. Experience with working with fungal pathogens is an asset. Salary will be commensurate with NIH guidelines.

To apply, please send current CV, cover letter, and 3 professional references to Richard Bennett at

Environment: The Bennett lab is part of the Division of Biology and Medicine at Brown University located in Providence, Rhode Island.

circle PostDoc position, for two years initially. Project: Pathogenicity mechanisms of Candida albicans and C. glabrata (posted November 20, 2013)

The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology — Hans Knöll Institute – (HKI, www.hki-jena.de) investigates the pathobiology of human-pathogenic fungi and identifies targets for the development of novel natural product-based antibiotics.

Candida albicans and C. glabrata are the two most common pathogenic yeasts of humans. In contrast to other fungal pathogens, these yeasts belong to the normal microbiota of the human intestinal tract and other mucosal surfaces. They usually only cause infections when natural barriers are breached or the immune system is compromised. Under these circumstances C. albicans and C. glabrata express factors which promote uncontrolled growth on mucosal surfaces and invasion into deeper tissues and organs and which counteract the host immune system. We aim to identify and to characterise these factors and processes.

The Department Microbial Pathogenicity Mechanisms (MPM, www.hki-jena.de/mpm) hosts one of the largest Candida research groups in Europe and is located at the HKI in Jena, one of the largest centers for infection biology of human pathogenic fungi world wide.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will lead and participate in projects aimed at understanding the pathogenicity mechanisms of C. albicans and/or C. glabrata during interactions with the host using cellular, molecular, infection biology and microbiological approaches and will be supported by his/her own team of Master and PhD students.

We expect a PhD in Life Sciences (e.g. Biology, Biochemistry, Microbiology). The applicant should have excellent communication skills and should be able to supervise Master and PhD students and perform team-oriented as well as independent work. Practical experience in one or more of the following subjects is essential: Mycology/Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Functional Genomics, Infection Biology, Cellular Biology.

We offer multifaceted scientific projects with excellent technical facilities, a place in a young, committed team, as well as strong scientific collaborations. Salary is paid according to German TV-L (salary agreement for public service employees). The HKI is an equal opportunity employer. The position is available from spring 2014 for at least two years. Extensions are possible.
