An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Chris Robinson, Ph.D. at Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis. The Robinson laboratory studies Coxsackievirus B3 with the goal of elucidating host factors that influence pathogenesis to develop novel therapeutic approaches and guide vaccine strategies. We are looking for an individual interested in host-virus interactions. The position provides an opportunity to develop skills in viral pathogenesis using a mouse model, study the microbiota, and examine immune responses to Coxsackievirus. Additionally, the research environment at Indiana University will provide an excellent opportunity to gain additional skills to develop an independent research project.
The Indiana University School of Medicine provides an interactive and supportive environment for postdoctoral training. The expertise of the faculty from different departments and centers is highly conducive for the type of collaborative efforts that have been historically very productive among investigators interested in basic science and clinical investigations. Additionally, the research interests of the faculty in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology span a diverse array of disciplines, including bacteriology and virology. The faculty are internationally recognized leaders in their fields. In addition, the Indiana University School of Medicine houses approximately 36 Scientific Research Cores including but not limited to imaging, proteomics, genomics, flow cytometry, computational biology, transgenic animal, rodent behavior, statistics, immunohistochemistry, and numerous analytical cores.
