Description
NIH Outstanding Investigator Award-funded (7 years) research position to study basic signaling pathways co-opted by the Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCV) and Kaposi sarcoma herpesvirus (KSHV). The successful applicant must have exceptional experimental skills, the ability to work on defined projects with independence and an overarching enthusiasm for excellent bench research.

Skills
Molecular biology skills are essential and the applicant should be able to independently write-up and present scientific findings. Skills and experience in bioinformatic analyses are a plus. Successful applicants will have publications showing significant scientific training, skills and background.

Notes
Our laboratory discovered KSHV and MCV and we use these viruses as molecular models to uncover new cancer pathways. We currently have ongoing projects related to SCF E3 ligase regulation of viral replication (PNAS 2017, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28461484), tumor virus dysregulation of cap-dependent protein synthesis PNAS 2016 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27402756), frameshifting in viral gene expression (PNAS 2015 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25271323) and novel technologies for tumor virus discovery (JCI Insight 2016 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27034991).
