  • LSU Health Sciences Center, New Orleans, LA
  • One postdoctoral position and two research associate positions available
  • To study molecular regulation of Streptococcus mutans and the ecology of oral biofilms

  • Salary and benefits will be commensurate with NIH standards and experience


Research in the Wen lab at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) focuses on the molecular mechanisms that the keystone oral pathogens like S. mutans and Lactobacillus spp. use to adhere and persist in the oral cavity and interact with others in the plaque microbiota in oral health and disease and the development of novel strategies against dental caries and periodontal disease. It uses comprehensive approaches, which include various modern molecular, biochemical and bioinformatics techniques and in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo models mimicking the human oral cavity.

Qualifications: For the postdoctoral position, we are particularly interested in individuals who (1) have recently obtained their PhD in related majors with strong experience in current genetics, molecular biology, and/or biochemistry; and (2) possess excellent verbal and written communication skills. For the research associate positions, applicants should have a Bachelor’s degree in biological sciences majors. Prior experience working in a Microbiology, Biochemistry, and/or Molecular Biology laboratory is a plus but not required.

Responsibilities: The primary responsibility of this postdoctoral associate will be to conduct independent research mostly by following established protocols. In addition, the postdoctoral associate will also be expected to provide mentorship to other junior personnel and students in the lab, assist the principal investigator in manuscript preparation, and present research findings at national and international scientific conferences. The primary responsibility of the research associate positions will be to carry out research experiments under the supervision of the principal investigator. In addition, some laboratory management work will also be needed.

Salary and benefits: Salary and benefits will be commensurate with NIH standards and experience. These full time positions are available immediately, and will remain open until filled.
