Description A postdoctoral position is available in the Laboratory of Human Retrovirology at the IRCM to study Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)-host interactions governing HIV replication, transmission and persistence. Research projects are particularly focused on understanding the role of HIV accessory proteins (Vpr, Vpu and Nef) in evading intrinsic/ innate immunity using cell-based and humanized mouse models (NSG and/or BLT). These research projects are funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). For more information on the research program of the Laboratory, please refer to the Research Unit’s website.
Skills Applicant should have a PhD in virology or immunology, obtained in 2013 or after. A relevant experience in immunology using mouse models and/or in HIV research would be most appropriate. A strong background in molecular and cellular biology would also be an asset.
Notes Curriculum vitae and two letters of reference should be forwarded to:
