An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of David N. Levy at New York University to study HIV replication and latency. Projects available include:
Project 1. The epigenetic control over the decision between productive infection and latency and the contributions of both cellular and viral factors to the initial installation of chromatin on the HIV provirus. Understanding the interplay between viral and cellular epigenetic regulators is key to developing novel methods to activate or suppress expression from viral reservoirs. Prior experience in HIV research, epigenetics and/or transcriptional regulation is a plus.
Project 2. The influence of HIV infection on the cell’s transcriptome. HIV infection results in massive changes to infected cell gene expression, influencing the ability of the cell to support virus replication and harming normal cell functions. We are mapping the influence of specific HIV genes to this reprogramming and investigating how these effects may be observed in vivo. This project requires expertise in bioinformatics and related research techniques such as RNA-seq, ATAC-seq and ChIP-seq.
The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in molecular biology, virology, and/or immunology.
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 https://apply.interfolio.com/59134
