Our research is focused on how electricity-producing microbes use electron transfer via hair-like protein appendages as “nanowires” (Cell 2019) for communication (Science 2010), and biofilm formation (Nature Nano 2011), allowing bacteria to survive in environments that lack membrane-permeable electron acceptors such as oxygen. Our discovery of protein nanowires offers fundamentally new method to synthesize materials that can transport charge/energy at rates/distances unprecedented in molecules; helps to explains a wide range of globally-important processes; and offer insights into bacterial survival mechanisms. 

The postdoc will work on one or more of the following four major research themes of our lab: 

1)   Protein Structure: We recently solved the structure of nanowires that revealed a surprise that nanowire have a core of hemes that line up to create a continuous path for electrons (Cell 2019). Previously nobody suspected such a structure. We are now identifying the nanowire assembly machinery using x-ray crystallography and cryo-electron microscopy and tomography. 

2)   Conductivity Mechanism: Existing models of biological electron transfer cannot fully explain such high conductivity in proteins. We are building a new fundamental framework by performing conductivity measurements as a function of several physical and chemical probes. 

3)   Synthetic Protein Nanowires: We are incorporating natural and non-standard amino acids in protein nanowires to develop electronically and optically functional biomaterials. 

4)   Bacterial infections: Most bacteria cannot cause diseases without pili. In collaboration with Yale Cystic Fibrosis Center, we are evaluating how bacterial electron transfer helps adhesion to the host as well as iron & sulfur metabolism using Pseudomonas aeruginosa as a model system. 

We are looking for candidates with expertise in one of the following: site-directed mutagenesis, electron transfer in proteins or conducting polymers, membrane protein purification; cultivation of BSL2 level bacterial pathogens and their mammalian host cells. This experimental position also presents extensive collaborative opportunities with computational and clinical scientists. 

The candidate is expected to have a PhD degree or equivalent. Our research is multidisciplinary, and we encourage candidates from different backgrounds. Applicants should be highly self-motivated and have potential to become independent researchers in academia or industry. 

Candidates should send an email to postdoc@malvankarlab.org with the following materials (submitted as one combined PDF file): 

1. A cover letter (no longer than 2 pages) describing your past and present research projects as they relate to above research in our lab and your career goals. 

2. A document (no longer than 1 page) describing how you plan to contribute to our lab. 

3. CV. 

4. Contact of 3 references, including phone and email. Describe your connection with them.

Postdoctoral Position in the department of Surgery
Posting Date: June 2019

POST-DOCTORAL/ASSOCIATE RESEARCH SCIENTIST: Start Sept-Oct 2019

We are looking for a Postdoctoral Scientist with strong molecular biology, virology and neurobiology skills to investigate initiating causes of neurodegeneration. The position offers an opportunity to pursue new and independent approaches to a global health problem that has not been adequately addressed by a focus on end-stage pathology. Curiosity, self-motivation and a desire to produce substantial, well-designed and reproducible observations of importance will be central to the development of new productive strategies in this field.

 In addition to Yale center facilities, our lab is well equipped, and has extensive unique resources of human brains as well as experimental animal and cellular models of neurodegeneration. Our current focus is on the discovery of hidden and new unsuspected viruses that can ignite critical early neurodegenerative pathways. We discovered unsuspected circular viral DNAs in mammalian cells, and these protected DNAs appear to have been acquired in the distant past from bacteriophage REP initiation sequences (see PMID:28630311; PMID:3031766). Links at:  http://medicine.yale.edu/surgery/people/laura_manuelidis.profile).

These elements are also involved in the development of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) brain pathology. Although many people believe that a misfolded host protein (the prion)  is the causal infectious agent in CJD and mad cow disease, numerous reproducible observations show the host protein alone is not sufficient to cause infection or spread epidemic agents through the environment. Even more mystery surrounds different causes of other forms of late onset neurodegeneration including Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s disease that show no clear basis in inherited gene mutations.

  Appointment would entail a commitment for at least 2 years 2019. Please email (laura.manuelidis@yale.edu) if you are seriously interested.
