Description
A postdoctoral fellow is sought to work on a three-lab collaborative project aimed at defining improved human two-dimensional and three-dimensional models of infectious diseases. ES- and iPS-derived cells will be infected with flaviviruses and other pseudotyped viruses to explore virus tropisms. Effects of virus infection on assembly of cells into three-dimensional organoids will be studied to define pathogenesis mechanisms.

Skills
Experience in working with viruses, including virus amplification and virus titering is strongly preferred. Cell and molecular biology experience required. Experience with RNA viruses preferred. Ability to work collaboratively as a member of a team is critical.

Notes
U.S. citizens will have priority for funding.
