Dr. Evelien Adriaenssens is looking for a phage enthusiast to join her group at the Quadram Institute Bioscience in Norwich (UK). The work will be focused on developing a protocol for isolation of novel gut bacteriophages, in combination with bioinformatic studies of gut viral communities.
José R. Penadés of the University of Glasgow is hiring a postdoctoral researcher to investigate whether phage-mediated lateral transduction, a recently-described phenomenon, is widespread in nature. Apply by emailing [email protected] by April 20, 2019.
Mike Barer and Martha Clokie of the University of Leicester are hiring a PhD student researcher to study the detection of pathogen-specific bacteriophages in face-mask samples to distinguish colonisation from infection in exacerbations of chronic lung disease. Apply by Jan 20, 2019.
We are looking to recruit a Postdoc Bioinformatics / (Pro-)phage genomics
Comparative phage and prophage genomics to study genome evolution and (pro-)phage-host interaction
Involvement in the integrative analysis on large genomic datasets which are generated using state-of-the-art sequencing techniques (RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq)
Cooperation with experimentalists to validate and address resulting findings.
University of Massachusetts Medical School, Department of Microbiology and Physiological Systems, Worcester, MA
The Department seeks candidates who are focused on studies of viral infection, including (but not limited to): molecular mechanisms of virus infection and pathogenesis; cell biology of infection; virus structure; viral evolution/interactions of viruses with their hosts; and host responses to viral infection. Candidates will be expected to develop and maintain an innovative, externally funded research program. We offer competitive startup and ongoing support, highly competitive salaries, multi-tiered faculty mentoring, a centralized graduate program, and an exceptionally collaborative departmental and institutional culture with abundant opportunities for both basic and translational research.

Dr. Martha Clokie
… To determine the risk posed to UK consumers by Salmonella which may enter the food chain via contaminated poultry and swine products from both the UK and Thailand, we will collect up to 300 Salmonella isolates from each country from swine and poultry. We will ensure that the Salmonella isolates are representative of the top 5 serovars from each country, from poultry and pigs, and if possible, have been isolated at different times. Whole genome sequencing (WGS) will be performed on all isolates, and phylogenetic reconstruction performed to examine Thai and UK lineages …

Senior Research Assistant
Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK
Dr. Darren Smith
We are now seeking applications from highly committed, motivated and talented postdoctoral researchers to join the phage research team at Northumbria University for a fixed term, 24 months project in collaboration with clinicians at the Great Northern Children’s hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne. This Action Medical Research funded project will characterise the intestinal virome of preterm, low-birthweight infants to determine bacteriophage groups that are present in the early gut flora in neonates.
