  • Full Time
Description:

The laboratory of Dr. Marlene Bouvier in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Illinois at Chicago has an immediate opening for a  Postdoctoral Associate or Research Scientist, based on number of years of research experience after PhD, to play an active role in our ongoing studies of immune evasion mechanisms involving Adenovirus and immune cell surface receptors. We use a multidisciplinary approach to understand the mechanism evolved by viral proteins to modulate host immune responses.  We are seeking a highly motivated and intellectually curious individual with a rigorous training in virology, immunology, or related fields and with advanced hands on experience in molecular biology techniques and other techniques such as generation of virus stocks, determination of virus titers, acquisition and analysis of flow cytometry data, quantitative PCR, cell-based and biochemical assays, electrophoresis techniques, and maintenance of mammalian cells. 

This position is an excellent opportunity to work in a dynamic and multidisciplinary environment and gain knowledge in structural virology/immunology.

For immediate consideration, please submit a cover letter to mbouvier@uic.edu and a complete resume listing published papers.
