Description
An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Margaret Kielian, Professor of Cell Biology and Samuel H. Golding Chair in Microbiology.

We use enveloped alphaviruses and flaviviruses as highly developed and medically important systems to study virus-membrane fusion and virus assembly and budding at the molecular level. The project builds on our recent work on the cell biology of alphavirus budding (PLoS Pathogens, 2016, DOI:10.1371/journal.ppat.1006061; J. Virol. 2014, DOI:10.1128/JVI.00592-14 ). We now seek to define the novel viral and cellular mechanisms that generate intercellular extensions and mediate cell-to-cell alphavirus transmission. These studies will use a multidisciplinary approach and take advantage of the collaborative and interactive atmosphere of our lab.
