BIO5 Postdoctoral Fellowship Q&A Session
The BIO5 Postdoctoral Fellowship is an internal funding mechanism and recognition for outstanding postdoctoral researchers at the University of Arizona who are engaging in multi-disciplinary research projects aligned with the foci of the BIO5 Institute. These grants are specifically designed to support and enhance the independent research goals of BIO5 postdoctoral researchers, showcase their research at a BIO5 Research Symposium via short talks and/or poster sessions and to facilitate a “forward-thinking” mindset by requiring each fellow to form a three-member mentoring committee that will help in grant applications, career advice and job talk preparations by providing funds for additional research training or experience pertinent to their current postdoctoral appointments.
Please join us for a virtual Q&A session to learn more about this research opportunity.
No RSVP required.
Dr. Johnson received his bachelors degree from Duke University. He obtained a doctorate in biochemistry and biophysics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he studied the effects of calcium on bacterial motility and attachment under the mentorship of Matthew Redinbo. For his postdoctoral training, Dr. Johnson went to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in order to work with Jason Rosch on metal homeostasis of Streptococcus pneumoniae and subsequently with Douglas Green on the mechanisms of LC3-associated phagocytosis. He joined the UArizona faculty in 2016.
