Job description: We are recruiting for a skilled and motivated postdoctoral scientist with a background in molecular pathogen detection in a clinical diagnostic setting to work on research, development and validation aspects of a project to develop a rapid and accurate near patient molecular test to detect pathogenic E. coli in the female genitourinary tract in pregnancy and labour.

The longer-term objectives of the project include: understanding acquisition and antenatal / intrapartum carriage of pathogenic E. coli and other bacterial pathogens; identifying risk factors for transmission of these pathogens during labour, leading to colonization and possible infection of neonates; and developing intrapartum testing strategies to detect these pathogens during labour, allowing use of appropriate and targeted antibiotic prophylaxis.
