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 regulation by host factors. This project focuses on delineating the mechanism of the Influenza D virus (IDV) entry into cells, in collaboration with Dr. Feng Li (University of Kentucky). We combine molecular/cell biology, biochemistry and quantitative microscopy techniques, including single virus tracking, to investigate the early steps of viral infection. A candidate will work with a collaborative interdisciplinary team and an enthusiastic mentor. 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.
