Gulf Coast Consortium for Antimicrobial Resistance
A collaboration of leaders in antimicrobial resistance researchers from all of GCC institutions as well as additional TMC institutions (Baylor, Rice, TAMHSC Institute for Biosciences and Technology, University of Houston, UTHealth [with the newly created UTHealth Center for Antimicrobial Resistance and Microbial Genomics], MD Anderson, UTMB Galveston, and Methodist Research Institute) have recognized the strength and potential of working together to solve the global problem of antimicrobial resistance. To this end, they formed this GCC consortium in 2016.
The GCC AMR seeks to create a robust collaborative research environment within the GCC and surrounding institutions focused on antibiotic resistance in order to increase basic, translational and patient oriented research (POR). Since the problem of AMR encompasses a variety of fields and is inherently interdisciplinary, the focus on this important problem will stimulate and strengthen collaborations among basic and clinical researchers (including clinicians) from the GCC Texas Medical Center institutions.
- Job Opening:
The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Center for Antibiotic Resistance and Microbial Genomics (CARMiG) is looking for two Research Coordinators. Candidates are expected to assist with the day to day administrative project management and may provide scientific direction for research projects of considerable scope and complexity, including collecting data, assisting with budget preparation, grant proposals, contracts or other scientific-related documentation, as well as processing and shipping lab specimens. Part of the functions also include maintaining supply inventory, equipment and regulatory standards, and using microbiology skills to process and store lab specimens. The candidates will assist PIs in performing experiments and analyzing results using different techniques and will interact directly with the clinical microbiology laboratory.
Qualifications include excellent written and verbal communication skills, working knowledge of the MS Office Suite, some experience with clinical research, and basic microbiology experience would be preferred. The positions require a Bachelor’s degree or four years of experience in lieu of a degree.
Confirmed keynote speakers include Kelly E. Dooley, Vanderbilt Univ.; Michael Otto, NIH/NIAID; Arjun Srinivasan, CDC.Find out more »
