Exciting new research position to study in depth the molecular mechanism of action of new antiworm (anthelmintic) compounds being developed by industry. There is an urgent need for new classes of anthelmintics to control nematode parasites of animals and plants. This research position entails applying genetic, molecular, genomic, and/or biochemical techniques with the free-living laboratory nematode Caenorhabditis elegans to discover and elucidate the pathways by which a novel class of anthelmintics functions.

PhD required. Prior experience with C. elegans and/or C. elegans genetic screens is strongly preferred but not essential.
