A post-doctoral position is available immediately in the Viral Pathogenesis Section, Laboratory of Immunoregulation, NIAID, NIH, to investigate the role of endogenous immune mediators, especially the gut-homing integrin alpha4beta7, in the pathogenesis of HIV-1 disease and in the mechanisms of virus control. A major focus of the laboratory is to elucidate the mechanisms of HIV-1 pathogenesis and to use this knowledge to devise novel strategies for treatment and vaccine. The laboratory offers excellent training opportunities in molecular and cellular biology, virology and immunology.
A strong background in virology, immunology and cellular biology is desirable. Interested applicants should have a Ph.D. or M.D. with less than 5 years of post-doctoral experience. Candidates may be required to complete an on-site interview process.
Candidates should submit their CV, a statement of research interests and a cover letter containing the name and address of three references to:
