¡Hola comunidad de CienciaPR! Estoy abriendo mi laboratorio de Evolución Viral en UC Davis este verano y me complace anunciar que tengo posiciones abiertas. Por favor ver el anuncio y compartir con sus contactos.
Cualquier pregunta, en confianza al email: samdiazmunoz <./at/> ucdavis.edu
The Diaz-Munoz Lab at the University of California, Davis is looking for a SENIOR FLU GURU (PROJECT SCIENTIST). The Diaz-Munoz Lab studies the social lives of viruses, with a current focus on coinfection and reassortment in segmented viruses (cystoviruses and influenza viruses). We have an evolutionary perspective and take an integrative approach to the study of virus-virus interactions using tools from genomics, environmental microbiology, classical virology, genetics, and ecology.
The successful candidate will work on an NIH-funded project that experimentally examines reassortment in human and avian influenza viruses using high-throughput sequencing. While the position is to work on a specific project, creative contributions to the ongoing project and future offshoots are expected and encouraged. The successful candidate will also, in coordination with the PI, manage influenza virus-related aspects of the lab. Excellent interpersonal and communication skills are essential, as the lab is a diverse team in terms of scientific and personal backgrounds.
Required Qualifications: (summary of qualifications below, see official posting for details)
-Ph.D. in virology, microbiology, molecular-cell biology, immunology or related fields
-More than 5 years of experience post-PhD (see postdoc ad if <5 yrs post-PhD)
-Experience with cell culture, animal virus culture and standard virology techniques
-Experience working in BSL2 (or higher) containment
-Experience with standard genetics lab techniques (e.g. RT-PCR, electrophoresis)
Preferred Qualifications (one or more)
-Experience with influenza virus culture
-Experience with single cell techniques
-Molecular cloning or genetic engineering experience
-Experience with RNA and protein detection techniques
-Research or university-level coursework in evolution and ecology
UC Davis is a leading research institution with over $750 million dollars in research funding and top-tier faculty. The campus is a diverse, supportive community with UC Davis named top college for women in STEM (Forbes), first in the world for campus sustainability (GreenMetric), and a top college for economic diversity and upward mobility (NY Times). The City of Davis is a vibrant, livable, family-friendly community. It was ranked best small town for cycling (Bicycling Magazine) and hosts one of the best farmer’s markets in the nation (American Farmland Trust). Davis has a privileged position between Sacramento, Napa Valley, and the Sierra Foothills with the San Francisco Bay Area and Lake Tahoe just a drive away.
