An NIH-funded postdoctoral position in HIV research is available in the laboratory of Dr. David N. Levy to study the regulation of HIV-1 gene expression. A particular focus is on the epigenetic control over the decision between productive infection and latency. We are investigating the earliest events in the establishment of HIV-1 chromatin organization which we have determined occurs soon after reverse transcription and is influenced by both cellular and viral factors. Understanding the interplay between these is key to developing novel methods to activate and purge or to suppress expression from viral reservoirs.
The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in molecular biology, virology, and/or immunology. The position is designed for a person strongly motivated to develop an independent career in research. An abiding mission of my laboratory is to assist postdoctoral fellows in the development of independence.
Applicants should submit: 1) Cover letter; 2) Curriculum Vitae; 3) Statement of research interests and career goals; and 4) Names and contact information of at least three referees to http://apply.interfolio.com/59134.
