Description An NIH funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Ryan Langlois at the University of Minnesota (http://www.micab.umn.edu/faculty/Langlois.html). The Langlois laboratory is interested in the immune response to influenza virus infections. Research projects include: using novel reporter viruses to elucidate mechanisms and consequences of infected cell survival in vivo, determining mechanisms of epithelial cell resistance and susceptibility to influenza virus in vivo, and generating novel vaccine platforms. This research is funded by an R01 as well as grants from the University of Minnesota.
Skills The ideal candidate will have a strong publication record and experience with either mouse models of infection, flow cytometry, molecular cloning and/or deep sequencing.
Notes The Langlois lab is located in a brand new microbiology research facility and has direct access to state-of-the-art flow cytometry, microscopy and sequencing facilities. Additionally the Langlois lab is a part of the Center for Immunology (https://www.immunology.umn.edu/) where there is a strong postdoctoral community and support system.
