Postdoctoral Intramural Research Fellowship Position

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)

A postdoctoral fellowship position is available in the TSE/Prion Molecular Biology Section of the Laboratory of Persistent Viral Diseases in the Division of Intramural Research, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, located at Rocky Mountain Laboratories (RML) in Hamilton, MT. This section uses in vivo and in vitro models to study the molecular mechanisms underlying prion pathogenesis and to identify effective anti-prion drugs. The section uses both human and rodent models to determine how prions establish an infection and how prion protein misfolding determines disease phenotypes. The section also studies mitochondrial dysfunction during neurodegeneration and general mechanisms of protein misfolding and spread, areas of research that are applicable to other protein misfolding diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

RML offers state-of-the-art facilities for genomics, proteomics, DNA microarray, and biological imaging in a recently renovated laboratory. The laboratory is located in the Bitterroot Valley of western Montana. In 2010, RML was ranked 6th in The Scientist magazine’s survey of the Best Places To Work for postdoctoral research fellows.

Trainees will receive a stipend commensurate with their experience, and health insurance benefits. Preference will be given to those candidates with experience and a background in mitochondrial isolation and functional assays, molecular pathogenesis of infectious diseases, and/or animal models of infection.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D., D.V.M., or M.D.
