Postdoctoral Associate, Boston University, NEIDLTracking Code2502 Job Description
Dr. Mohsan Saeed’s laboratory at Boston University’s National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories (NEIDL) is seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Associate for a project on the interplay between viruses and the host innate immune system. The candidate will investigate the molecular details of how respiratory viruses, particularly those from the Picornaviridae and Coronaviridae families, overpower antiviral immunity and cause disease. The work will employ stem-cell-derived models of virus infection and utilize modern molecular techniques, including CRISPR/Cas9, proximity-based protein labeling, proteomics, single-cell RNA sequencing, and high-resolution cell imaging. The strong conceptual and technological foundation of the proposed projects along with the presence of compelling preliminary data presents a solid platform for several high-quality publications.
The candidate will benefit from:
The ideal candidate should have a recent Ph.D. or equivalent degree in molecular microbiology, extensive experience with viruses and cell culture, first-author publications in peer-reviewed journals, strong communication and analytical abilities, and enthusiasm for basic science research. The candidates with expertise in stem cell technology and/or computational biology will be preferred.
Please send your resume/CV and list of publications to Dr. Mohsan Saeed at [email protected]
