A postdoctoral position is available at the Emory University School of Medicine to work on one of the two ongoing NIH-funded projects – delineating HIV-1 interactions with host factors involved in viral uncoating and nuclear entry and studies of HIV-1 protease activation upon virus assembly and budding. Our group combines molecular/cell biology and quantitative microscopy techniques, such as single particle tracking, TIRF, super-resolution microscopy and correlative light-cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-CLEM) to delineate key steps of HIV-1 entry and maturation. Highly motivated individuals holding a Ph.D. degree in virology, cell biology or related fields are encouraged to apply. Emory University provides excellent training and collaborative environment for research.
