Description:

A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the Leung Lab in the Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The candidate will be part of a successful research group focused on the biochemical and structural characterization of molecules at the host-pathogen interface in order to understand how protein-protein and protein-nucleic acids contribute to immune evasion, replication, and spread leading to infection. We use a multidisciplinary approach, including biochemical, biophysical, structural studies as well as cell biological and virological studies, to identify regulatory mechanisms that can be therapeutically targeted. We are seeking highly motivated postdoctoral scientist candidates with backgrounds in biochemistry, immunology, structural biology, and virology to join and work collaboratively with our group.
