Postdoctoral position in mechanistic studies of virus entry
A post-doctoral position is available at the Emory University School of Medicine in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Infectious Diseases to study the mechanisms of enveloped virus entry into cells and its inhibition by host restriction factors. Our group employs quantitative microscopy, virology, cell biology and biophysical techniques to delineate entry of diverse enveloped viruses, including HIV, Influenza, Lassa and other viruses. A successful candidate will work closely with members of a collaborative team and an enthusiastic mentor in an interdisciplinary laboratory. A candidate will have the opportunity to learn and apply a wide-range of assays, including time-resolved single virus tracking and super-resolution imaging. Preference will be given to candidates with fluorescence or cryo-electron microscopy experience. Highly motivated individuals holding a Ph.D. degree in virology, biophysics, cell biology, or related areas are encouraged to apply. Emory University provides an excellent training and collaborative environment for cutting-edge research.
