Description
Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)

National Institutes of Health (NIH)

National Cancer Institute (NCI)

Center for Cancer Research (CCR)

A postdoctoral position is currently available in a research program focused on mechanisms of assembly and RNA recognition during retroviral replication. These studies involve detailed characterization of recombinant viral proteins in solution and in virus-like particles assembled in defined in vitro systems. Of particular interest are the interactions of retroviral Gag proteins with each other and with nucleic acids, both in vitro and in mammalian cells in culture. Other ongoing studies address molecular mechanisms by which retroviruses enter new host cells and the effects of viral and cellular proteins on this process. The laboratory also studies interactions between retroviruses and antiviral factors present in mammalian cells. Further details and a list of relevant publications can be found at http://home.ncifcrf.gov/hivdrp/rein.html.

Skills
Interested candidates must have a Ph.D. and/or an M.D. and have less than 5 years of postdoctoral experience. Applicants must have a strong background in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, and/or virology. The stipend starts at $52,900 and is commensurate with experience. This is a time-limited, renewable appointment.

To apply, send a cover letter, CV including bibliography, and contact information for three references to the following address:
