Dear colleagues,

I am looking for enthusiastic MSc or PhD students to join my group in the Department of Microbiology at the University of Manitoba, Canada (https://home.cc.umanitoba.ca/~prehnag/). 

Our lab studies how bacteria communicate with their hosts, how they communicate with each other, and how they communicate with other micro-organisms. The supported graduate student positions are aimed at understanding the adaptation, versatility, and host-specificity of Type VI secretion systems (T6SS) at the molecular level using Salmonella as a model system. A MSc or PhD student will research the role of one or more accessory proteins that modulate the function of the Salmonella T6SS(s) using structural, biochemical, and molecular biology techniques. 

Applicants should possess or be near completion of a Bachelor’s degree in the life sciences or a related discipline, and be interested in both biochemistry and microbiology. Some experience in molecular biology as well as protein expression and purification is desired but not required. Training in x-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy will be provided. All projects have the potential for training in cryo-EM. English language skills, the ability to work in a team, willingness to learn, and good organizational skills are required.

Applications should include: 
1. The applicant's CV
2. A one-page summary of their motivation for pursing graduate studies
3. Contact details for at least two references

Please send application materials by January 15th, 2019 to:

The starting date is spring 2019. 

The University of Manitoba (http://umanitoba.ca/) is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba and is Western Canada’s first University. The University has large core-group of structural biology and biochemical researchers between the departments of Microbiology (http://www.sci.umanitoba.ca/microbiology/) and Chemistry (The Manitoba Group in Protein Structure and Function), access to the Canadian Light Source synchrotron, and comprehensive molecular biophysics instrumentation (500 and 600 MHz NMR, in-house XRD, ITC, CD, DSC, AUC, and MST). Winnipeg is also home to the National Microbiology Laboratory, a leader in infectious disease research and collaborator with the Department of Microbiology.
