Join Us

We are seeking creative, highly motivated scientists with a strong interest in molecular explorations of infectious diseases to join our research team. We strive to advance knowledge of host-microbe dynamics through innovative applications of chemical biology while promoting a positive and inclusive work environment.

Graduate students: We are always excited to welcome rotation students to the lab. Please contact Stavroula if you would like to learn more about potential projects and the possibility of rotating with us.

Postdoctoral fellows:  Now accepting applications - details below!

The Hatzios Lab at Yale University has a postdoctoral position available for a highly motivated, creative, and collaborative PhD-level scientist with a strong background in chemical biology, microbiology, and/or cell biology. Our lab uses a combination of chemical proteomics, biochemistry, genetics, and diverse infection models to study proteins, metabolites, and post-translational modifications that shape host–microbe interactions in the gastrointestinal tract. We are primarily interested in understanding how oxidative stress at the host–microbe interface influences host cell signaling in gastrointestinal diseases and identifying metabolites that promote bacterial resistance to oxidative stress in the host environment. We are seeking candidates who share our enthusiasm for addressing these important questions in the emerging field of chemical microbiology. Experience with mass spectrometry, organic synthesis, fluorescence microscopy, and/or bacterial genetics is a plus.

To apply, please send a cover letter, brief research summary, and current CV containing the contact information for three references to
