Job Type/Arrangement:
  • Full Time
Description:

A postdoctoral position is available at the Emory University School of Medicine to join an innovative laboratory that studies the mechanism of enveloped virus entry into cells and its antagonism by host restriction factors and inhibitors. Our group combines molecular/cell biology and quantitative microscopy techniques, such as single particle tracking, TIRF, and super-resolution microscopy, to delineate key steps of virus entry, including membrane fusion, uncoating and nuclear import. We are currently implementing correlative light-cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-CLEM) techniques to gain structural insights into virus entry intermediates. A candidate will work with a collaborative interdisciplinary team on one of the NIH-funded projects aimed at delineating the mechanisms of restriction of virus entry by host membrane proteins. Highly motivated individuals holding a Ph.D. degree in virology, biophysics, cell biology or related fields are encouraged to apply. Emory University provides excellent training and collaborative environment for research.

Interested applicants should contact Dr. Gregory Melikian (aka Melikyan) at gmeliki@emory.edu.
