The Quantitative Virology and Evolution Unit, led by Patrick Dolan, Ph.D., within the Laboratory of Viral Diseases is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to develop projects in within-host evolution and pathogenesis of enteroviruses and other RNA viruses. The candidate will develop an independent project focused on the dynamics of host responses and viral evolution with access to a wide range of techniques and resources to pursue these questions.
Applicants with 2 of 5 should consider themselves well qualified:
Please note: The QVEU seeks to provide a supportive, equitable, safe, and fun environment to explore emerging questions in virology. Those from historically marginalized or under-represented backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply. U.S. citizenship is not required (visa requirements apply)
Interested applicants should e-mail a CV and cover letter as a single PDF to Patrick.Dolan@nih.gov
The QVEU is located within the Laboratory of Viral Diseases (LVD) within the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) on the main NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. LVD is composed of nine independent investigators who seek fundamental insights into the complex biology of human viruses. Current research covers a broad array of viral pathogens (HIV, poxviruses, herpesviruses, papillomaviruses, influenza viruses, and enteroviruses, alphaviruses, and flaviviruses) and explores virtually all facets of viral biology, including virus entry, regulation of gene expression, mechanisms of genome replication, virion morphogenesis, latency-persistence, pathogenesis, immunity, and evolution. LVD investigators also apply their expertise to develop viral vaccines and therapeutics.
