The Foxman lab at the Yale University School of Medicine is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to investigate host-virus interactions in the respiratory tract (MD, PhD, or MD/PhD). Our goals are to better understand the innate immune defenses that limit viral replication in the respiratory tract in order to develop novel diagnostic tests and novel therapeutic strategies for these common infections.
We employ in vitro and in vivo infection models and analysis of patient samples. Background in immunology/innate immunity and microbiology or virology a plus. Prior laboratory experience essential. The goal of this training opportunity is to support the career development of a future independent biomedical researcher.
The candidate will benefit from the extensive resources and large and diverse research community at the Yale School of Medicine. The ideal candidate will meet the criteria for support on our institutional T32 training grant.
DESIRED SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
Relevant knowledge areas: immunology; innate immunity; virology; infectious disease; clinical pathology; respiratory medicine.
Relevant lab skills: primary cell culture, in vivo mouse models, interest in big data analysis.
