The Richer Lab in the Department of Microbiology & Immunology at the Indiana University School of Medicine is recruiting a postdoc to join our research team. The Richer lab has broad interests regarding mechanisms of T cell development, activation and memory generation in the context of acute and chronic viral infections. Current projects include 1) understanding the modulation of effector and memory T cell function by the inflammatory milieu, 2) the impact of chronic infection on T cell development, 3) transcriptional control of memory T cell differentiation in acute and chronic infection and 4) mechanisms of immune evasion by epidemic isolates of Zika virus.

See https://medicine.iu.edu/faculty/51983/richer-martin and https://www.mjricherlab.com/ for more information.

Applicants should have recently completed PhD or MD/PhD training, have a solid understanding of immunological concepts and a demonstrated publication track-record. Experience working with mouse models of infection and expertise with flow cytometry are desirable but not required. Successful candidates will work closely with Dr. Richer and other members of the laboratory and will be expected to work independently and contribute to writing peer-reviewed manuscripts and prepare grant applications.

Interested candidates are encouraged to submit a cover letter, statement of interest, and curriculum vitae (including contact information for three references) to:
