Job Requirements / Description
Organization Overview:
The Laboratory of Bacterial Pathogenesis and Immunology, led by Dr. Vincent A. Fischetti, exploits products derived from bacteria-killing viruses (or phages) to develop antibiotic alternatives for treating and preventing bacterial infections. This strategy identified bacteria-killing enzymes called lysins, with the ability to rapidly kill disease bacteria from a variety of species. One of many such lysins has achieved successful outcomes in the second of three human clinical trial phases, becoming the first antibiotic alternative to attain this goal.

As inventors of lysin therapeutics, our lab works on the development and engineering of phage lysins to control human pathogens. The Research Assistant will participate in research and assist senior laboratory staff on various projects spanning from lysin discovery and engineering to mouse models of efficacy.
