Post-Doctoral Fellowships Available

Durham NC —The Center for Host-Microbial Interactions in the Duke Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology has current openings in the Tri-Institutional Molecular Mycology Pathogenesis Training Program (MMPTP). The Tri-Institutional MMPTP is a multidisciplinary program spanning three major research universities (Duke, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State University) that was created to recruit, support, and train promising post-doctoral scientists and physicians to develop productive research careers in molecular mycology and pathogenesis. Program trainees will become the future experts and leaders in all areas of fungal research in academia, industry, and government.

Applicants for training may be recent recipients of doctoral degrees in biomedical sciences, physicians who have completed residency training, and interested candidates with doctoral degrees in other fields (e.g., Plant Pathology, Population Genetics, Bioinformatics, Pharmacology).

Participating faculty are unified in their focus on fungi, and the three institutions represent perhaps the highest concentration of researchers who study fungi. These faculty have developed a rich community that shares resources, interacts regularly, and collaborates frequently. The Tri-Institutional MMPTP training program is unique as the only NIH-funded program dedicated to molecular mycology.
