A postdoctoral fellowship is available in the Retroviral Immunology Section of the Laboratory of Persistent Viral Diseases in the Division of Intramural Research, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, located at Rocky Mountain Laboratories (RML) in Hamilton, MT to
conduct innovative scientific research in the field of HIV therapeutics, vaccines and cure. The research will predominantly involve use of a novel humanized mouse model (TKO-BLT) to study HIV infections in vivo. The TKO-BLT mouse allows studies ranging from acute HIV infections to long-term latent infections. Ongoing studies will allow a successful applicant to rapidly engage in current research while developing new creative avenues of investigation.
RML has state-of-the-art facilities including core facilities for genomics, electron microscopy, and flow cytometry. We are located in the scenic Bitterroot Valley of western Montana within easy access to some of the finest outdoor recreational opportunities in North America.
The selected candidate is expected to have a strong background in HIV, preferably with experience in immunology and using mouse models. Individuals with experience in flow cytometry are especially encouraged to apply. A record of peer-reviewed publications is required. Salary is based on experience using the NIH salary scale.
Applicants must hold a Ph.D., D.V.M., or M.D. degree and be U.S. citizens, resident aliens, or nonresident aliens with, or eligible to, obtain a valid employment-authorizing visa. This position is subject to a background investigation.
Please send curriculum vitae, a letter of interest and bibliography to
