Postdoctoral Position&nbsp; Pathogenesis of <i>Trichomonas vaginalis</i>
in San Antonio, Texas, USA<br>
Two positions are available to study the number one, non-viral sexually
transmitted infectious agent, <i>Trichomonas vaginalis</i>. The long-term
goal of this research group is to understand the pathogenesis of
trichomonosis, the STD caused by the protist <i>T. vaginalis</i>. One
area of research encompasses the study of the property of phenotypic
variation and the molecular characterization of P270, the highly
immunogenic and phenotypically variable protein (Microbial Pathogen.
<b>23</b>: 223, 1998). A second area involves the property of specific
cytoadherence by <i>T. vaginalis</i> organisms. Ongoing studies include
the molecular characterization of the adhesin proteins (Mol. Microbiol.
<b>28</b>: 305, 1998 &amp; Microbiol. <b>144</b>: 3011, 1998). Modern
molecular approaches are being used to study virulence and pathogenesis
of <i>T. vaginalis</i> (examine references cited in above papers). San
Antonio, TX is a family-friendly low-cost city with a high quality of
life. Interested candidates should reply with a statement of future
interests, recently published, in press or submitted articles, a complete
curriculum vitae, and references to be contacted, which can be sent
through email or hard copy to:<br>
