Located in Boston and the surrounding communities, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute brings together world renowned clinicians, innovative researchers and dedicated professionals, allies in the common mission of conquering cancer, HIV/AIDS and related diseases. Combining extremely talented people with the best technologies in a genuinely positive environment, we provide compassionate and comprehensive care to patients of all ages; we conduct research that advances treatment; we educate tomorrow's physician/researchers; we reach out to underserved members of our community; and we work with amazing partners, including other Harvard Medical School-affiliated hospitals.

The Reinherz lab at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to study HIV-1 vaccine immunology with emphasis on the genetic and molecular mechanisms of broadly neutralizing antibodies specific to MPER segment of the gp41 subunit. The laboratory provides a rich training environment and access to cutting-edge techniques.


Responsibilities
The postdoctoral fellow will work on gp160/nanodisc vaccine development and immunogenicity studies. In addition, cloning, expression and purification of novel recombinant antibodies, antigenicity profiling including structural analysis and characterization of binding relative to gp160 trimers and viral membrane linked to broad HIV-1 neutralization are key tasks.

Qualifications
Highly-motivated candidates with a recent PhD or MD/PhD in biomedical sciences and significant experience in molecular biology and biochemistry are encouraged to apply. Skills in molecular biology and biochemistry are essential while additional immunology and/or structural biology experience is useful. Candidates should have a publication record in peer-reviewed journals. We are seeking a candidate with excellent writing and communication skills, able to work independently but also effectively with other lab members.
