Job Description


BIOCHEMISTRY

Full-time Regular, 40 hours/week

A postdoctoral fellowship position is open immediately in the Department of Biochemistry to pursue biochemical and cell biological studies examining the mechanism of SAMHD1 action in human cells and in HIV pathogenesis during immune activation. The restriction factor SAMHD1 interferes with HIV replication and mutations in the SAMHD1 gene cause the autoimmune disease Aicardi-Goutieres syndrome, a lupus-like disorder that clinically mimics congenital viral infection.

Candidates with molecular biology and biochemistry experience using enzyme assays and cell culturing are strongly desired. This candidate will interact with a team of faculty and students in a project that incorporates biochemical, structural, cellular and animal models providing opportunities in a cross-training environment using various experimental approaches.
