The Division of Newborn Medicine, Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School seeks a highly-motivated individual with demonstrated potential for creativity and excellence for a laboratory-based faculty position at the Assistant Professor level. We are seeking a structural biologist with established background in crystallization of intracellular signaling complexes.  Of particular focus for the Division of Newborn Medicine is expertise in the molecular basis for viral and bacterial antagonism of the innate immune system, including interferon, NF-kB and inflammasome pathways.  The candidate would ideally explore the emerging links between innate immune sensors and regulators of membrane trafficking that shape pathogenic responses.  A demonstrated track record of collaborations with immunologists, cell biologists and microbiologists to address fundamental questions in molecular medicine is highly desirable.
