Description
A two year ANR-funded post-doctoral position is currently available in our laboratory starting in Autumn 2017, to study immunopathogenesis of Nipah virus infection and develop novel prophylactic and therapeutic anti-viral approaches. This zoonotic virus, ranked by WHO among top 8 emerging pathogens likely to cause major epidemics, provokes severe disease with high fatality rates, without any existing licenced prevention and treatment, representing thus an ongoing threat to human health globally, and providing an important focus for further research.

Skills
Applicants should have a doctoral degree and a strong and productive experience in virology, and/or immunology, with the background in cell and molecular biology, and excellent technical, organization and communication skills. Experience in animal experimentation is beneficial. A strong interest in new emerging viruses, the ability to perform creative and independent research, and high level of motivation is expected.

Notes
European or Swiss nationality is required by ANR for this position.
