Description:

The UNC HIV Cure Center in the Institute of Global Health and Infectious Disease and School of Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in collaboration with basic science departments in the School of Medicine and across the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill invites applications for an Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the laboratory of Edward Browne. The UNC HIV Cure Center is focused on the discovery, development, and implementation of new treatments to allow durable treatment-free remission of HIV infection (cure). This work covers the entire translation spectrum from basic science, drug discovery, in vivo models, to clinical studies and provides the opportunity to be exposed to both academic and industry approaches to problem solving and progression of ideas to medicines. The HIV Cure Center is supported by University, federal funds, and by a public-partnership between the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and ViiV Healthcare. The Cure Center seeks to bring the best of both academic and industry approaches, redefining research and seeking the breakthroughs needed to tackle this extraordinarily challenging global health issue. The successful candidate will bring experience in virology or immunology as well as the confidence and creativity to make individual contributions and drive the science forward. Our diverse team includes scientists and clinicians all harnessing their experiences and expertise to achieve a better understanding of HIV latency and clearance to address many of the remaining roadblocks to a cure for HIV. We are seeking a new team member to contribute to our investigation of the mechanisms of HIV persistence, and how best to clear reactivated HIV infected cells. This new team member will be responsible for working within the team as well as contributing independently.
