An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of David N. Levy, PhD at New York University to study the molecular biology of HIV replication and latency.
Projects available include:
Project 1. The epigenetic control over the decision between productive infection and latency and the contributions of both cellular and viral factors to the initial installation of chromatin on the HIV provirus. Understanding the interplay between viral and cellular epigenetic regulators is key to developing novel methods to activate or suppress expression from viral reservoirs. Experience in HIV research and/or transcriptional regulation is a plus.
Project 2. The reprogramming of the infected cell transcriptome by HIV, with emphasis on the influence of specific viral genes to the permissiveness of a cell to viral replication and to dysregulation of cell functions. This project requires expertise in bioinformatics and related research techniques such as RNA-seq, ATAC-seq and ChIP-seq.
The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in molecular biology, virology, and/or immunology. The position is designed for a person strongly motivated to develop an independent career in research. An abiding mission of my laboratory is to assist postdoctoral fellows in their career development and development of independence.
Applicants should submit: 1) Cover letter; 2) Curriculum Vitae; 3) Statement of research interests and career goals; and 4) Names and contact information of at least three referees.
