Postdoctoral Position in Host-Pathogen-Vector Interactions
Department of Internal Medicine and Department of Microbial Pathogenesis
The Laurent-Rolle lab at Yale University, New Haven, CT is now accepting applications for Postdoctoral associates in the area of host-pathogen-vector interactions to start as soon as possible.
We are interested in how RNA viruses evade the host immune system and how host-responses to virus infections prevent or enhance infections. There are multiple ongoing projects that are interdisciplinary and highly collaborative including studies on SARS-CoV-2, Zika virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis virus. Specifically, we are interested in 1) the mechanisms of actions of interferon stimulated genes in host resistance to viral infections, 2) dissecting the molecular mechanisms utilized by pathogenic viruses to antagonize host immune responses, 3) the development of vaccines and novel therapeutics against viral infections, and 4) identifying biomarkers of viral infections for early diagnosis.
Eligible candidates should have, or be close to completing, a Ph.D. or M.D in immunology, virology, molecular biology, or related fields. Highly motivated individuals with experience in innate immunity, protein biochemistry, and animal experimentation are encouraged to apply.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter explaining why you think this lab would be a good fit for you, a CV, and contact information for three references to Dr. Maudry Laurent-Rolle at firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject of the email should be “Postdoctoral Position in Host-Pathogen interaction”.
Yale University is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. Applications from women and minorities are encouraged.
