Postdoctoral position studying countermeasures against human coronaviruses

 

The Denison Laboratory at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, TN is a world-leading coronavirus (CoV) research laboratory. We use integrated virologic, biochemical, and genetic approaches to understand the replication, cell biology, and vulnerable drug targets of human emerging CoVs - SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV-2 - and model CoV, mouse hepatitis virus. We are recruiting a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow with exceptional leadership skills to drive forward research focused on development of antiviral drugs, vaccines, and therapeutic antibodies against current and future epidemic CoVs.  

 

Requirements: Open to US citizens and permanent residents only. Must hold PhD in microbiology, molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, or other relevant field. Virology experience required. Previous BSL-3 training and experience strongly preferred.
