COVID-19 Interactions with Host Innate ImmunityPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2020-Mar-20
A post-doctoral position is immediately available at the Rocky Mountain Laboratories (RML) campus of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Hamilton, Montana, in the Laboratory of Virology (LV), Innate Immunity and Pathogenesis Section (IIPS) headed by Sonja M Best, Ph.D.
The IIPS seeks to identify and characterize virus-host interactions involved in innate immune response that impact the replication and pathogenesis of COVID-19/SARS2. The IIPS uses techniques in molecular, cellular and systems biology as well as immunology and animal models to understand the significance of virus interactions with host innate immune responses to host resistance and virus virulence.
Ideal candidates will have a strong interest in one or more areas including virology, intrinsic cellular immunity or signal transduction, bioinformatics and single-cell RNAseq, protein biochemistry, or pathogenesis studies and animal models. The virus models require research to be conducted at biosafety level 3 (BLS3), and therefore the candidate must be committed to work in high containment laboratories as part of this work.Qualifications:
Applicants must have (or soon to complete) a Ph.D. or M.D., or equivalent, and less than three years of postdoctoral experience. This position is subject to a background investigation. The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs.To Apply:
Candidates should submit a CV, a one-page research experience summary describing research accomplishments and interests, and contact information for three letters of reference. Please write "Postdoctoral Application" in the subject header and email to Sonja Best (sbestniaid.nih.gov).
Disclaimers: Note that we will not respond to generic applications that appear to have been sent to multiple recipients (mass mail applications).
This post will be available until June 20, 2020.
