Four NIH-funded postdoctoral researcher positions are available to study HIV interactions with host factors in Dr. Li Wu’s lab. Two NIH R01-funded projects are: (1) Mechanisms of SAMHD1-mediated regulation of HIV-1 innate immunity and viral gene expression; and (2) Mechanisms of HIV-1 RNA modification of N6-methyladenosine in regulating viral replication. Please refer to our recent publications at: http://vet.osu.edu/publications-18
Starting in November 2019, the Wu laboratory will be relocated to the Department of Microbiology and Immunology in the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. Please visit the department website at: https://medicine.uiowa.edu/microbiology/
The laboratory will be located in an interdisciplinary and interactive department offering state-of-the-art equipment and core facilities. Highly motivated candidates with a Ph.D. (0~3-year experience) in virology, immunology, cell biology, molecular biology, or genetics are encouraged to apply. Experience in virology research (particularly HIV) is desired.
The successful candidate will join an existing team of postdoctoral researchers and graduate students and will have the opportunity to develop independent research projects. Individuals who intend to follow a career in academic science are especially encouraged to apply. Previous postdocs trained in the lab have become independent faculty members at research universities or senior scientists in pharmaceutical companies.
Salary is commensurate with experience. Candidates should submit a cover letter, CV, and 3 references to Dr. Li Wu by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
