Research Opportunities

1. Postdoctoral Fellow Opening Available!

Requirements: Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. A postdoctoral position is available for a creative and highly motivated individual interested in characterization of novel and newly emerging viral pathogens.  We have identified numerous novel viruses present in diseased human specimens and now seek to define both the molecular virology and clinical relevance of these novel viruses.  A variety of experimental approaches will be utilized, including epidemiological and seroepidemiological analysis of viral prevalence and the development of both in vitro and in vivo systems for viral replication and growth. Other studies focus on defining and testing the role of the virome in human health and disease. In addition, we are characterizing host-virus interactions in a novel C. elegans virus infection system. Interested individuals should send a cover letter, CV (PDF) and contact information for 3 references to:
