Highly motivated, ambitious, driven and talented postdoctoral fellow are sought to join a research program that studies the inhibition of viral replication by innate immunity in vivo. Recently, we have developed knockout mice models for different innate immune factors and plan to investigate how these proteins affect viral replication. The individual is expected to join a fast pace moving environment. The laboratory is located in the new Price Center Building, a recently constructed state-of-the-art biomedical research facility centrally located on the campus of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Funding is currently available for up to 3 years, with the possibility of further extensions.
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic
information. Einstein seeks candidates whose skills, and personal and professional experience, have prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence, and the communities we serve.
This program aims to gain immunological and cellular biological understanding of the mechanism by which different innate immune factors block viral replication in vivo :
1) recent PhD or MD/Ph.D degree,
2) experience in mouse immunology,
3) experience handling transgenic and knockout mice,
5) experience in viral or other pathogen challenge in mice.
