Postdoctoral Position in Innate Immunity and virus-host interactions

University of Texas Med Branch

  • Post Doctoral Position - Academic
Job Type/Arrangement:
  • Full Time

A post-doctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Ricardo Rajsbaum at the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, Texas, in the field of host-pathogen interactions and innate immune responses to viruses.

The lab research focuses on the regulation of innate immune signaling pathways by ubiquitin and other post-translational modifications and the role of E3-ubiquitin ligases in promoting virus replication.  The projects are highly collaborative and include work on host-pathogen interactions during infections with different viruses including Ebola, Influenza, Zika and SARS-CoV-2. Candidates must have a Ph.D. and should have experience in immunology, virology and molecular biology, with preference given to those with experience in ubiquitination and innate immunity. High biocontainment experience is not required but would be a plus. Interested candidates should contact Dr. Ricardo Rajsbaum (
