A 2-years postdoctoral position is open for studying gammaherpesvirus entry.
A 2-years post-doctoral position is available starting between October 1st and December 12th 2015 in the Unit of Vaccinology (Dr L. Gillet) (Fundamental and Applied Research for Animal and Health, FARAH, University of Liege, Belgium, http://www.farah.ulg.ac.be/). We are looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral candidate in order to explore the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the entry of gammaherpesviruses into the host cells. The candidate should have a Ph.D. and advanced experience in virology and cellular biology. The candidate must be non-Belgian citizens and should not have lived and/or worked in Belgium for more than 24 months during the past 3 years. For application (from recently qualified PhD students and from postdoc scientists with no more than 5 years post-doc-PhD experience), send C.V. (listing your publications as first and co-author), contact information for three references, and a brief summary of research experience by email to Laurent Gillet (email@example.com).
