One postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Rongsheng Jin’s laboratory at the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, University of California Irvine. The new postdoctoral fellow is expected to participate in several NIH-supported projects focusing on the mechanism of action of bacterial virulence factors in their cellular context.
