We are always looking to connect with others interested in investigating novel antibacterial strategies.

We value and support those from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical research, including individuals from rural, 1st-generation college graduates, and low-income origins.

To apply, please contact Dr. Baylink at arden.baylink(at) and send:

1. Your CV describing your work experience, research experience, and accomplishments.

2. A cover letter describing the sort of position you seek, your research interests and goals for the future, and why you have a specific interest in joining the Baylink lab.

In the Baylink lab you will have the opportunity to apply a multidisciplinary approach to the study of infectious disease:

  • Protein crystallography and Alphafold modeling
  • Structure-based drug design
  • Bioinformatics, evolution, phylogeny
  • Bacterial chemotaxis and biofilm studies
  • Fluorescence microscopy
  • In vivo swine gastrointestinal infection studies

We take mentorship seriously and are committed to helping trainees advance to their next career stages through publishing peer-reviewed research, acquiring extramural funding, and completing doctoral degrees in a timely manner (4-5 years).
