Postdoctoral Research Position is available for study of mechanisms of stress granule function that activate distinct arms of innate immunity. Specific areas of interest are mechanisms to activate interferon signaling through granule assembly and roles of novel dynamic G3BP1 protein complexes in these processes. The lab also is investigating complex virus-host interactions in pancreatic models of enterovirus infection that may trigger type 1 diabetes autoimmunity; opportunities for roles in that work exist. Those studies will entail development of persistent culture systems for defective enteroviruses in pancreatic organoids and will determine the cell biology during phases of infection, including signaling, host and viral control of gene expression. Experience in molecular virology systems and/or molecular biology is desirable.
