Postdoc position researching RNA-based mechanisms of oncogenic viral infections
|Biochemistry & Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology|
A Postdoctoral position is available within the Karijolich laboratory at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. The laboratory is broadly interested in the molecular biology of oncogenic viral infections with a focus on RNA-based mechanisms of antiviral and antitumor immunity. Current areas of investigation include co-option of transposable elements in infection and immunity, regulation of gene expression (viral and antiviral pathways), and RNA modification and structure during infection. Our work is multidisciplinary and combines mechanistic RNA biochemistry, immunology, virology, and high-throughput sequencing and proteomic approaches. The laboratory is well funded with grants from the National Institutes of Health, American Cancer Society, and Pew Charitable Trusts Foundation.
Candidates must have or plan to have a Ph.D. with excellent communication skills. Expertise in cell culture, western blotting and basic molecular biology techniques is required. There is a strong preference for applicants that possess computational biology skills and have experience processing and analyzing high-throughput sequencing data.
To apply, please send CV, brief statement of research experience/interests and contact information for at least two references.
