The Center for Retrovirus Research at The Ohio State University occupies a place of national and international leadership in the field of retrovirology. Our mission is to facilitate interdisciplinary investigations of problems relating to prevention and treatment of retrovirus diseases of humans and animals.
We are currently seeking a qualified candidate for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position investigating the molecular pathogenesis of T-cell transformation and induction of leukemia/lymphoma by the Human T-cell Leukemia Virus (HTLV). This position will be available for the fall/winter of 2016 in the NIH-funded Green Laboratory of the Center for Retrovirus Research. Current studies focus on the viral and cellular regulators of HTLV gene expression/replication, cellular transformation, and viral survival or persistence in the infected host. We employ a multidisciplinary approach combining cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, and animal models to address our research goals.
Qualifications: PhD required. Applicants should have experience with mammalian cell culture, cell biology and molecular biology techniques. Experience with small animal models is a plus, but not required. The ideal applicant will have experience working with viruses and be a highly motivated, well-organized individual with excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
