Applications are invited for NIH-funded postdoctoral positions at the University of Missouri at Columbia. The major focus of our research is membrane fusion and cellular entry of enveloped RNA viruses as well as host innate immunity to viral infection, with particular interest in retroviruses, influenza A virus, HCV and Ebola virus. We arr also interested in innate sensing of viral infections. Highly motivated individuals with strong background in virology, cell biology, and innate immunity are encouraged to apply. We are especially seeking candidates who have skill and experience in lipid biophysics and live cell imaging. These candidate will be working on the mechanisms of newly identified cellular IFITM proteins that restrict Ebola virus, influenza A virus, and HIV-1. Please send the cover letter, full CV, as well as the detailed contact information of three references to Dr. Shan-Lu Liu at firstname.lastname@example.org….
