Metal ion competition at the host-microbe interface

The Helmann Lab is recruiting postdocs interested in the role of metal ions in determining the outcome of host-microbe interactions. Our group investigates conserved bacterial systems required for the acquisition, storage, trafficking, and export of metal ions. Interested candidates will be able to explore the mechanistic basis of metal ion homeostasis using a variety of molecular genetic, biochemical, genomic, and physiological approaches.
