HIV, retrovirus, retroviral assembly & reverse transcription
A postdoctoral position is available in the Viral Recombination Section (VRS), HIV Dynamics and Replication Program, CCR.
The VRS studies retroviral replication using human immunodeficiency viruses and other retroviruses, with a particular emphasis on the mechanisms of viral RNA biology, specific RNA packaging, virus assembly, and HIV replication. Molecular tools and advanced imaging approaches are used to dissect various aspects of viral replication mechanisms. A more complete description of the projects can be found at http://home.ncifcrf.gov/hivdrp/Hu_res.html.
Interested candidates must have a Ph.D. or an equivalent doctoral degree and have less than 5 years of postdoctoral experience in a related field. Candidates who are enthusiastic about making advances in HIV biology and have a strong background in molecular biology, biochemistry, and/or virology are encouraged to apply.
The stipend starts at $54,100 and is commensurate with experience. This is a time-limited, renewable appointment.
