Postdoctoral Position in Influenza Virology (Pittsburgh)

Posted on February 28,

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Nara Lee in the MMG Department at the University of Pittsburgh to study Influenza virus assembly. This project focuses on how RNA-protein and RNA-RNA interactions impact the intracellular virus assembly process in preparation of genome packaging into virions. This project entails the utilization of novel deep sequencing-based techniques developed in our lab. For more information, please see doi: 10.1016/j.celrep.2020.107823 and doi: 10.1093/nar/gkx584.

Applicants are expected to have profound training in molecular biology, with emphasis on RNA-related methodologies, or virology. Previous experience with next-generation sequencing and computational analyses is desirable. Interested candidates are encouraged to send their application including a brief cover letter, CV, and contact information of three referees to [email protected]
