We are seeking a post-doctoral fellow to work on cellular adaptation in HIV infection of macrophages. We have found that, within the human lung, much of the HIV-1 infection is present in alveolar macrophages (Jambo et al. 2014. Mucosal Immunology 7:1116) and has a major impact on phagocyte function. We are isolating infectious HIV-1 virus from these cells to investigate how the biology of the virus is shaped by this cellular pressure.
We are seeking an individual with molecular virology expertise who is interested in studying HIV-1/macrophage adaptation. Experience with HIV is not necessarily required.
We are seeking a post-doctoral fellow to probe the host cell/pathogen interface and to elucidate mode-of-action of compounds that impact bacterial fitness and drug susceptibility through modulation of host cell function. This is part of an on-going drug discovery program that focuses on compounds active in the host environment (VanderVen et al. 2015. PLoS Pathogens 11: e1004679; Liu et al. 2016. J. Exp. Med. 213:809).
We are seeking an individual with molecular bacteriology expertise, preferably with mouse infection training. While experience with M. tuberculosis is desirable, the ability to perform murine infection experiments is of greater importance.
Applicants must have a PhD in a related field, and be able to demonstrate proficiency in either molecular virology or molecular bacteriology. Applicants should have excellent written and verbal communications skills. If you do not have any of the specific skillsets detailed above your application will not be considered for either of these positions.
For full consideration, please send a letter of application, a current curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of three references to: Dr. David G. Russell via Mary Linton at email@example.com .
Applications will be processed until the positions are filled, but those received by January 31, 2018 will receive full consideration. Cornell University is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and we strongly encourage applications from women and minorities.
