A post-doctoral position is immediately available in the Division of Immunology at the Tulane National Primate Research Center, affiliated with the School of Medicine at Tulane University. This position is open for a dependable, competent and motivated postdoctoral fellow experienced in quantitative and qualitative investigation of the HIV-1/SIV reservoir as it relates to mechanisms of HIV-1 persistence.
