Postdoctoral Research Associate positions available to study complex virus-host interactions in the laboratory of Dr. Felicia Goodrum. Our collaborative molecular virology group is interested in virus-host interactions important to controlling the decision to enter into or exit latent programs. Specific questions of interest include: the transcriptome associated with cytomegalovirus latency, viral determinants and their host interactions important to the switch between latency and reactivation, and the viral manipulation of host pathways. Our research takes a deep dive into the cell biology around infection, including hematopoiesis, signaling, host membrane/protein trafficking as it relates to cargo sorting, and host and viral control of gene expression.
