POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS in HIV and SARS-CoV-2 Virology and Immunology
Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Nathaniel (Ned) Landau (www.landau-lab.org) in the Department of Microbiology at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine. Research will focus on the development of lentiviral-based dendritic cell vaccines and the immune response to viruses including HIV-1 and SARS-CoV-2.
The Landau Lab is an NIH-funded research team that uses molecular biology, biochemistry and cell biology to understand innate immune and adaptive responses to virus infection. Projects available are (i) the use of CRISPR genome-wide library screening to identify novel proteins of the innate immune response that restrict HIV infection (ii) the development of therapeutic lentiviral-based dendritic cell vaccines and (iii) the exploration of new approaches to blocking SARS-CoV-2 replication. The projects involve CRISPR gene editing technologies, dendritic cell culture, high resolution microscopy, T cell activation assays, flow cytometry and FACS, single cell RNA.seq and humanized mouse models.
The NYU Grossman School of Medicine offers a rich scientific and intellectual environment for collaborative projects and state-of-the-art instrumentation and core facilities. Salaries are above the NIH NRSA Post-doctoral stipend scale and include benefits. Subsidized housing is available.
Talented candidates with an interest in the innate and adaptive immune response to viruses, dendritic cell biology and vaccine development with a background in Molecular and Cell Biology research are welcome to apply! Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree and be independent, motivated, ambitious and interested to join an interactive and diverse research group. Previous experience in Virology and Immunology is a plus. Candidates must have excellent communication skills and no more than 3 years of post-doctoral experience.
