Description
The Suthar laboratory has an opening for a postdoctoral position to study immunity to flavivirus infection (West Nile virus and Zika virus). This is an exciting area of research and we are actively pursuing a postdoctoral fellow interested in studying how innate immune signaling programs DCs, B and T cell responses during flavivirus infection. Successful candidates must have a Ph.D. in Virology or Immunology and be highly motivated, collaborative, productive and energetic.

Comments:
Salary is commensurate with the NIH stipend. Postdoctoral fellows are expected to submit a postdoctoral fellowship grant (NIH or foundation-based). US citizens and greencard holders are strongly encourage to apply.

Skills
Previous experience should include work with a murine model of immunological or virologic disease as well as experience with: in vitro immunological and virologic assays (e.g., antigen-stimulated proliferation, cytokine production, plaque assay, etc.), FACS analysis, and basic molecular techniques (e.g., qPCR, Western blot, etc.). Additional experience, but not required, includes work involving genetically altered mice and bioinformatics analysis.
