An NIH-funded position is available for an exceptionally talented, motivated, and hardworking postdoctoral fellow to investigate the mechanisms of HIV reactivation from latency using molecular biology, genetics, high-throughput sequencing, and biochemical techniques. Experience with RNAseq, locus targeting by Cas9, and/or molecular cloning techniques will be viewed favorably. The successful candidate will join a vibrant research team exploring novel aspects of HIV-1 and HIV-2 pathogenesis and the mechanisms of virus latency and reactivation. The postdoctoral fellow will have appointments both at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School and will participate in the activities of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
